As we say farewell to 2012 and move forward to the possibilities of 2013 I thought I would join fellow blogger Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife in her 2012 Blog Hop Carnival and share a few highlights of my year.
May 12th was the first Promise Walk for Preeclampsia in Cherry Hill.
I was the Walk Coordinator. It was my all time proudest individual moment aside from marriage and childbirth. My first time speaking in public, I was given a proclamation by the Mayor and Oh Boy was it emotional!
In June we went to the kids first baseball game!!
Then we went to Bermuda, it was the kids first time on an airplane and we had a blast!
In August, Derek got his first library card!! It was a huge deal and both kids were very excited!!
In September we took our annual family trip to Ocean City, NJ
In October Hurricane Sandy devastated our the try-state area and millions of people lost everything. Our beloved shore towns were destroyed, my hometown of Staten Island wad devastated. I started Spreading the Warmth hoping to collect 50 or so handmade hats and in what became a whirlwind for me I have gotten and delivered over 1,500 hats and counting!!!
My wish for 2013 is for health, happiness and joy to fill the lives of all those affected by the recent tragedies on the East Coast. My personal wish for my family is continued health, happiness and joy!! Every moment when I look into the beautiful faces of my children I am reminded over and over how lucky I am and how precious life is. Happy 2013 to you and yours!
