Farewell 2012

Another year has traveled on and left our calendars clean. It feels like just yesterday I was putting a milk carton stamped "expires: January 2012" into my grocery cart. Now that January 2013 has arrived quicker than a rabbit's hop, I've learned a few things.

This year - saw plants rise and wither, lakes spill and freeze, days of kind weather and days where napping was all one could do. I was burdened by my wisdom teeth for most of the year. It was those four little teeth that caused me to cancel plans, sleep through the daylight and weep too often in pain. It wasn't until they were pulled in October that I felt one hundred percent "me" again.

There were many wonderful moments this year too - Montana in February, playing my banjo, learning how to be proud of my singing voice, letting that voice out in front of crowds, my first gig with Carter, hearing Samuel Beam sing "The Trapeze Swinger" and Pokey Lefarge cover Jimmie Rodgers, selling clothes with my mum and swimming with seals on Vancouver Island.

I'm still deciding on how to live in 2013. All that I know is I want a body that pulls like a pack mule in the direction of my dreams. Life's honey, I'm ready for you !

Here is a bit of a memoir to the past year. I've included the most popular posts of the year (calculated by how many views + comments), my personal favorites and a few blog highlights.
