Just like in 2011, time for a yearly wrap-up via blog posts! My year in review:
January // To start off the year, I decided to chronical my gratitude. An amazing choice, as it's always good to remember the good things in life. It also got a ridiculous number of pins on Pinterest, which is hilarious considering all I did was put stickers in a notebook. ;)
February // I fell in love with Neuroscientist Ryan Gosling. Who wouldn't love this studly, smart man?

March // I got dumped, was sad for a brief moment, then realized I'm so much better than that. Hollie sent me the sweetest gift in the world (the gorgeous necklace) and I will forever be grateful for her kindness!
April // I turned 26 and had the best birthday ever...by sharing it with strangers.
May // My bestie got married!
June // A sad note, as my best friend since junior high passed away. Words don't do you justice, sweet woman. To Chelsea, the sweetest, most badass chick I've ever known.
July // We started the 15 Day Challenge, and it blew up. Did you participate?!
August // I started online dating, and chronicling the experiences on the blog. Behold, the most asshole-ish email I received:
(Don't worry y'all, I later found via OKWeirdo that he emailed this to a bunch of girls.)
September // I finally met the bloggers I'm now closest to, Neely and Steph. It was love at first sight.
October // After an interesting round of online dating, I met the man of my dreams (as my uncle noted, via the internet, or the current equivalent of putting my phone number on a bathroom stall). I don't give a damn, because he's amazing.
On our first date.
November // I logged onto Facebook for the first time in 10 months...and then hated myself for doing it.
December // A ton of things happened, but one of the happiest moments was when my good church friends got engaged! I am in love with this photo.
That was my year, in a quick review! Of course, if you want to read more, there's an archived list on the sidebar just waiting for you to click!
Hope you all had great 2012s, and here's hoping that 2013 is infinitely better!
