Farewell 2012, hello 2013

January 2, 2013• 34 Comments

I’m a day late, but Happy New Years everyone! :D Is it just me, or did 2012 go by amazingly fast? Per tradition, here’s my quick 2012 year in review:

Yes, he finally proposed!

12.25.2012. Yes, he proposed on Christmas day!

Talk about ending 2012 with a bang ;) The past year was just as eventful as 2011, but in a good way[1. No car accidents, thank goodness]. I truly have a lot to be thankful for, and even though I haven’t posted in my Quiet Times category, I still gotta give God credit where credit is due. He told me at the beginning of 2012 that it was going to be a year beyond my expectations, and His promises never fail :)

So there’s to looking back. Now to looking forward! My resolutions are pretty simple for 2013:

  1. be more consistent in doing my QT
  2. blog more!
  3. spend less, save more

The 3rd resolution is pretty much a continuation of my 2012, but intensified. Not only do I have the payments on the rest of the home, I now have a wedding to save for as well *blush* Speaking of home, here’s a sneak peak:

2 weeks into construction!

2 weeks into construction!

So happy 2013 to everyone, hope you all have an amazing year! :D

      The wedding won’t be until late 2014, so I haven’t really started planning yet. I’ve been using Pinterest to get ideas though, so that should help later on :)

    2. Thank you! I’ve been talking to friends and browsing Pinterest (ha!) for ideas, but the wedding won’t be until late 2014, so I’m taking my time :)
