Looking Back at Twenty Twelve

I’m not gonna lie; I’m excited for 2012 to end and can’t wait to ring in 2013. Although, to be honest, I don’t even think I’ll technically “ring” in the new year. I’ll be shocked if I can stay awake until 10 pm tonight—jet lag is no joke, especially when pregnant. It’s not that this year was bad, quite the contrary, actually, but I just have so much to look forward to next year, specifically in the coming weeks! 

I also want to share a quick apology; I know my posts have been lacking this year. I just did a quick look and they’re down significantly. I mean, shoot, I still have trips from April and May that I haven’t shared, and I really want to talk about the cruise I went on in September. Shame, shame on me. I’m hoping to stock pile some posts so I can publish them once the baby comes along, that way it won’t be so quiet around here. Good plan? I think so! 

Well, without further delay, here’s a look at my Twenty Twelve. Consider this your quick Cliff Note’s version from the past year 🙂

In May we went to the Amalfi coast. I showed you a sneak peek and never followed up. I have hundreds of pictures I still need to go through. I WILL post about it. I will. I will.

My husband and I visited Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, and it was amazing!

July and August
This was the month that the dreaded deployment started, but I was prepared! I made a list of goals (I should probably update what I accomplished!), armed myself with optimism, and found myself busier than ever.
I also went home for two weeks and had some wonderful bloggers share some tales:

I started sharing Bumpdates! Week 13 and week 14
September 
I finally shared our trip to England! 
The Portobello Room (where we stayed)
More bumpdate! Week 15, 16, 17, and 18
I sent my husband a pickle-themed care package!

 And then there were more baby things:
How we told my parents (a video that’ll make you laugh and possibly cry) 
The Gender Reveal (another video featuring my husband!) 
More bumpdates: week 19, 20, 21, and 22

 I started recapping the trip with my parents:

November
More baby stuff posted this month (it’s kinda the only thing on my mind these days!)

Whew! How’s that for a “quick” recap?! Even if I didn’t blog up to my expectations—especially in the last half of this year—it’s been a lot of fun to revisit everything in this post. I’ve loved reading all of your comments and look forward to interacting with you more in the new year!
