2012 Was A Good Year

by Meghann on December 31, 2012

Wow, what a year. I think 2012 will forever go down in history as the “wedding year” in my family. Multiple bridal showers, bachelorette parties, planning three very different weddings, etc. etc. Yep, the wedding year. It’s like a domino set, once one goes – they all go.

Weddings and wedding planning were a huge part of my year, but there were other amazing things as well, like setting new PRs for both the half marathon and full marathon, running nekkid, exploring new cities across the country, and making some amazing new friends in Tampa. 2012 has been an amazing year, and while I’m really sad to see it go, I know 2013 holds some amazing new opportunities as well.

Here are some of my favorite moments from the last year:

I’ve been incredibly lucky this year and I don’t take any of that for granted for a second. I have a great family, an amazing fiance, and wonderful friends; I count my blessings everyday for that.

I’m ready to see what 2013 brings. I’m terrible with New Year’s Resolutions, but I do have a few goals in mind. In 2013 I plan to dedicate myself to training for my Ironman and finishing strong, setting a new PR for my 5k and 10ks times, and embracing my new role as a wife. 2012 may have been the “wedding year,” but 2013 will be the “newlywed year” and I know we have some fun adventures ahead with that title. I love Derek more and more with each passing day and I can’t wait to start 2013 with him as man and wife.

What are some of your favorite moments from 2012? Do you have any goals for the new year?

Wow – what a great, big year it’s been for you! So many weddings, and so much Disney. Love it.

I had a great year. I met the love of my life – whom I moved to an organic farm with, and then moved to Vermont with. We’re so happy together and lots of fun adventures. I’m excited to see what’s in store for 2013.

Favorite moments of 2012: running a half marathon in Nashville, going on a European cruise with my husband, finding out that we were pregnant, and then finding out that we were having a little girl. :) It’s been a wonderful year!

My favorite moments of 2012 included seeing the Dallas Cowboys play in Charlotte, Seeing MADONNA, running a zombie 5k and of course getting my husband back in the same state. For 2013 I want to finally lose the weight I need to in order to be healthy. Ive messed up over and over and over again but I really hope 2013 will be a good year for getting and staying on track. :)

While I’m sure blogging several times a day can get tedious it must be nice to have such a easily-accessible log of your life!
