A year has come. A year has gone by.
I look back at what has happened. I look forward to what is to come.
These are my memories—my favorite moments from a year of life lived.
We spent our days on the water—boating and jumping in the salty sea.
We soaked up the summer sun and built driftwood fires when the sun grew tired before we did
We went on our first real vacation together—exploring Puerto Rico and the islands of the Caribbean
We celebrated our 4th year of marriage exploring the beautiful city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire
We went to campgrounds and fairgrounds
We adopted a wild little kitten and fell completely in love with our stripped little trouble maker
I saved my pennies and bought that bike I wouldn’t shup up about
We blinked and summer slipped into fall
We flew away to meet new nephews and nieces and to spend time with family
We gathered around warm fires and our merry little Christmas tree
And here we are, just like that, we have reached the end of another year.
It’s okay though.
Because we lived through the Mayan apococlypse.
And I’m sure we’ll live through whatever 2013 has for us too.
