Catching Up With 2012 So I Can Begin 2013 December 29, 2012

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 11:38 pm

I have this nasty, nasty habit.  When life starts to overwhelm me and I start feeling really behind I don’t even try to get caught up, I just let everything go.  That’s what happened with this blog this year.  That’s why I love the New Year.  A fresh start, the slate is wiped clean, new beginnings.

I love blogging.  I love sharing a little bit of home with my brother in California.  I’ve not done that for months and I’m feeling a little guilty.  So,  in an effort to get him reconnected with home and introduce his beautiful new wife to her in-laws I am going to try this whole thing out again.  Here is a super fast synopsis of what happened since the last time I posted.  Then maybe I can start anew!  🙂
