|Although I had to include this one, since it pretty much sums up how partied-out we're all feeling.|
But maybe instead of 525,600 minutes, I could measure my year in the 65 or so blog posts I've written.
Since I have such a nice way to look back over the last twelve months, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite memories.
Mike and I were talking about how this, the second year of our daughter's life, has gone much faster than the first. And it's probably because we have been sleeping a lot more.
I faced the harsh, cold reality that I no longer look like a college student, even if I can kick really high. I also learned that I'm falling behind on the times.
I struggled with my new identity as a mother, but I also ran my first half marathon and finished my Master's degree. Woot woot!
I discovered some delicious new recipes: fronanas, zucchini chicken salad, and the life-changing cake balls.
My sister came to stay for awhile, and she convinced me to get organized.
My brother-in-law came to stay for awhile, and he reminded me to be grateful for what I have.
And I learned some important lessons about motherhood, like how you should remove dead birds from a toddler's view, how nursing Anna has been awesome, and how time moves way too fast.
I am so thankful to all of you for reading my words and for your encouragement and thoughtful comments - on here and on my Facebook page.
I wish all of you a happy 2012 and hope that the last year has been as good to you as it has been to me and my little family.
How do you measure a year? Any resolutions?
