Another year is about to end and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to see it go. 2012′s been amazing. Here are a few of my favorite moments and memories.
♥ In January, I starting volunteering for Free Arts, saw the Bears lose to the Vikings and spent a lot of free time playing baking and playing bingo.
♥ In February, Rae and I hosted a lingerie sale at Mighty Swell. It was, by far, one of my favorite events we’ve ever put on.
♥ In March, my friend Erica and I co-hosted a French-y dinner party at my house for a dozen of our favorite gals. (Tammy Crackers not included.) It was such a fun night and a tradition we hope to continue!
♥ In April, the Iron Range blew my mind with its beauty. Mighty Swell hosted a kick-off party for the Summer of Dresses gals and we also popped up at The Hive Salon (which was super fun).
♥ In May, I saw Ronnie Spector at the Girls Got Rhythm Fest and my best broads and I paid a visit to Kansas City. We had a fabulous time thrifting, eating (barbecue), sitting by the pool and hitting the local honky tonks.
♥ In June, the prettiest girl in the world moved in with me and together with my hon’s family, we road-tripped to Texas to celebrate his grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary. I ate a lot of Whataburger, spent a dreamy day at the beach and found with my dream (trailer) house.
♥ In July, Rae got hitched (prettiest wedding of all time), I saw a bunch of amazing shows and accidentally met this guy.
♥ In August, I left my old job for a better one and started blogging again.
♥ In September, we made our annual trek to the State Fair, took in a Willie Nelson show down in Mankato and kept on finding new ways to make nachos.
♥ In October, my honey and I went to our favorite country music venue to see Moe Bandy and later in the month trekked to Fargo for a record show (and some thrifting).
♥ In November, I saw George Jones, Bruce Springsteen and Loretta Lynn within a period of eight days (!!!) and I turned 30, a milestone I celebrated with, what else? Cookies.
♥ And last but not least, December. It was definitely a busy month at work, but it ended on a lovely note with a full week-plus off.
All in all, it’s been a pretty good year! I sure can’t wait to see what 2013 brings! I hope you all have wonderfully relaxing New Year’s days.
