  1. My Best of 2012 List includes getting to know you this year! Your mom & I have been friends for a long time & over the years she has always shared the joys of being your mom with me! Following your blog has given me an inside view! She’s so right! You and your family are simply amazing! 2013!! Cheers!

  2. That is tough–visiting my Aussie friends in Vegas, getting a PR in the Fargo Half Marathon and mastering a bunch of cooking firsts like French macarons, an epic birthday cake and a faux gingerbread house. :). Happy new year to you and I cannot wait to see what adventures you find in 2013!

  3. NYC with the fam….any and all time with the fam… the MUD RACE! the NYC fam here in chi town..

    Door County… the monster pumpkin story

    Christmas in the city with everyone…

    good books, good knitting, good friends… and YOU!

    • Lovely list! We’ve definitely had our share of adventures this year…including the crazy free squash that made me laugh so hard I couldn’t breathe : )

      Thanks for your love and support! Looking foward to many more good times in 2013!

  4. I have GOT to make those enchiladas. And wasn’t the Lululemon warehouse sale epic?!? I took half a day off of work to go! 🙂 There are few posts I haven’t read, and want to click on–the Vegas brunch and backpacking trip. Looks like fun times! Happy New Year!

    • Thanks! We did very well for ourselves and then had to rest up for the strip…ha ha! That jacket is my favorite and when I tell people it only cost me $15, they don’t believe me! Hope there’s another sale this January : )

  5. Biking Door County sounds awesome. I have always wanted to visit there. The post about Emmy had me crying. I am such a sucker for animals.

    • I appreciate you taking the time to read it…the BOY and I still talk about how much we miss her, and it was strange not to have her in our annual NYE photos, but when I read that post I remember how full (and furry) her life was and that always makes me smile!
