A Look Back at 2012

It's normally around this time of the year where I like to look back and reflect on everything that's happened over the past year. Kind of like a little yearly wrap up. To tie up loose ends, finish each chapter, and move on. So without further ado, here's what my last year looked like:

January rolled around and I made resolutionsfreaked about how crazy my semester was going to be, and celebrated a friends birthday by having an Arrested Development themed birthday party (first picture below)

February: brought in an epic form of studying motivationValentine's Day, a huge hair change,  a few mardi gras parades (pictures below) & a house party where we watched a friends band play (below)

They were awesome; I'm not just saying that because I love them

March: St. Patrick's Day parade,  brought a friends birthday where we had a Phantom of the Opera party, a new puppy, & my sorority's formal

We get asked if we're twins/sisters all the time, but in reality we're just best friends

April: I got stuck in the rain without an umbrella, it was Elliot's & my Momma's birthdays, and I tried a new face routine which was insanely interesing

May: I got a brand spankin new pair of glasses, my sweet boyfriend moved back home, we went to Disney World, and got my grades back:

June: In June I dumped out my purse for the world to see, recapped Disney through photo passes, had a farewell party, and then recapped the Flower and Garden festival, went to a family reunion (pictures below), and finally brought a kitten home (to Elliot's, that is).

July: I spoke about growing up southern, participated in Christmas in July, packed for a family beach trip, went on a family beach trip, made two years with the sweetest boy, and built a massive blanket fort

August: there was sorority recruitment, thoughts about burning bridges, my 20th birthday, my dad's 50th birthday, and sorority Bid Day

This is one of my littles; she's the most precious person in the entire world

From a friend's birthday dinner - it was a lot of fun
September: brought a hurricane, the biggest heart break, thoughts on happiness, and the boys at work letting me play fantasy football with them. Sadly, I don't have any pictures from this month, but it's okay... I didn't do too much here anyways.

October: a calm Halloween, picking up running, running my first 5K, being in the pit for my first fashion show, and many football games

November: I kind of disappeared from the blog world (and the real world), but I was brutally honest with myself, won a giveaway, spent a weekend in New Orleans, and watched my baby sister in her last band competition.

December: December was a month of acceptance for me. I learned so much about myself, and came to accept a lot of the things that happened this year. December was a month of happiness for me, so much family time and friend time.

All in all, this year was a good year. The good outweighed the bad by far.

How was your past year? Are you looking forward to the next year?
