Goodbye 2012

It has been quite the whirlwind year, 2012. There have been so many life changes and ups and downs, but it the same breath I can say that a lot of things have stayed the same too. I started out the year still doing my yearlong teaching residency/student teaching. It was the most difficult thing I've had to accomplish but I learned so much and cannot believe how quickly it came and went. It led to an opportunity in getting a job at an afterschool program, and eventually a promotion to the job I have now. In May I graduated with my Elementary Education degree (minor in technology), and also had my first hospital stay. I found out that I have a mild heart condition and have been making health adjustments for the past several months in order to figure out this body of mine. I worked a brief stint at a daycare (what I thought I wanted to do) until I found out that it was definitely NOT for me and promptly quit and asked for my old job back (which I have now). The past 6 months have been filled with not seeing my family enough (especially my sister who is on an 11 month missions excursion), and figuring out the requirements of my promotion at work. 

Style wise the blog has had some changes as well. I've become much more acquainted with how to set up my pictures, take my photos, and put them on the blog. I have grown in my editing skills as well as honing my closet into a more cohesive style. I also have to say that Flock Together is the single most exciting blog opportunity to come my way since I started nearly three years ago. I am so honored and humbled to be a part of a collective of ladies who are so stylish, sweet, and wonderful. 

Thanks for being a part of my blog. Each of you who read my little day to day musings are so amazing and make me feel special on a daily basis! So blessed to have you all in my life :)

Thanks also for reading a little bit of my year in review. Following I have my favorite outfits from each month of this past year. Be prepared to be inundated with an enormous amount of photos, per usual ;) You are forewarned!
Goodbye 2012, here's to 2013, 
God Bless, 

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
