I'm a sucker for lists and love the 'year in review' shows on TV and articles that seem to show up in every media venue known to man. Not one to be left out in the cold I'm shamelessly stealing the idea from everyone who has already posted theirs the last few days. Here is a brief overview of some of my favorite happenings throughout the months of 2012.
The once in a lifetime trip to Antarctica. (really the list could stop there, it doesn't get much better than this!)
A behind-the-scenes visit to the Library of Congress
A fantastic St. Patrick's Day brunch
Spring in the District
Camping in Pennsylvania
Hanging out with the cutest nephews in the world
Road trip to Rhode Island
The US Open
Running a 5K
Hosting Pie Day
Capping off a year of great performances and concerts with a few holiday shows
It always gives me pause to see just how far I've come and what has happened in the space of 12 short months. Lives can change in the blink of an eye and yet sometimes the longer increments of time seem to fly by without any noticeable changes at all. I'm grateful for the various outlets I have for keeping track of all that I've done, the things I've seen and experienced and learned that help me keep life a bit more in perspective when I feel as if I'm stuck or not accomplishing all I'd hoped to accomplish. Sure, there are a ton of things still left on my list but I've crossed off quite a few too! Here's to a new year, new lists and new experiences. Tune in tomorrow for the latest edition.
