Bye 2012!

January 4, 2013

This was a crazy year. Mostly good, but all crazy.

For the past 4 years, Taylor and I have put together a little video of the photos from the year. It’s a little deceiving; it looks like we are always having the time of our lives, traveling around the globe, smiling for the paparazzi. And in general, that’s pretty true. What they don’t show are the long days at work, the personal challenges or the hours spent (wasted?) on Facebook. But overall they remind us that we’ve got it pretty good in this here life.

Here’s the 2012 edition. For the soundtrack we try to pick the most ubiquitous pop song of the year. Cheesy, yes. But that’s kind of the whole point.

If you make it all the way through the credits, there’s a little surprise there at the end. :)

Some of the highlights of our year included:

Hosting a New Year’s Eve party where the guests with kids outstayed everyone else

Heading to Alt Summit to get my blog knowledge on

Shopping for Sadie’s 8th grade dance dress (this may have been one of the personal challenges I referenced above)

Spending lots of QT with our families

Heading to Cabo for a Girls Weekend

Taylor’s trip to Vegas for our friend Julian’s bachelor party

My cousin Merchi’s surprise 30th birthday party

Summer trips to a Chicago weddingTennessee, NYC and of course, Spain

Design jobs for some awesome friends and clients, including David’s Gallery Wall

Continuing education with photography and sewing classes

Moving my Mom closer to me

Seeing my campaign nightstands in HGTV magazine

Building the deck

Hosting Thanksgiving

Seeing all our family members on a whirlwind “planes, trains and automobiles” Christmas break

Thank you for being part of an amazing year and I’m excited to start the roller coaster called 2013!

If you’re curious (or perhaps a stalker) here are our videos from the past three years: 2011, 2010 and 2009.
