A look back at 2012

2012 has been one heck of a year for me. I had a few health scares. The company where I worked as the catalog designer was sold. I got married. I began working for myself. I decided to look back through my instragram feed and pick out two photos from each month to create a mini visual record of my last year.

January 2012: It snowed a few times & I took a class in Literary Theory which I earned an “A” in.

February 2012: Drove myself to the emergency room because i had a super high heart rate for no reason & my cheese markers were featured in Redbook.

March 2012: Took a weekend trip to Boston to celebrate Matt and my own birthday & it snowed again.

April 2012: Celebrated Easter by creating vessels to keep eggs from breaking while being dropped off a roof (mine did not survive) & enjoyed some local ice cream when they opened in the spring.

May 2012: Enjoyed some time paddling around on the kayaks & planted our mini garden.

June 2012: Matt and I got married on a sailboat & celebrated with Harry Potter.

July 2012: Matt and I got almost matching bikes & my family threw a party for us in Delaware where I helped my sister with her Criminal Justice homework underneath the stars (thanks WIFI).

August 2012: I redesigned packaging for my Peppersprouts coasters & went to my first drive-in movie.

September 2012: Traded in the first new car I ever bought (2004 Ford Focus) for a very fun Fit & cut down a christmas tree to photograph Peppersprouts’ ornaments.

October 2012: Spent a weekend with the in-laws here in Maine where we visited the farmers market & enrolled in a creative writing class (which I also earned an “A”)

November 2012: Cut down our real christmas tree & it snowed again.

December 2012: Was part of some amazing markets and craft shows & visited the families in Delaware and Central NY, where it snowed a lot.

I hope you have all had a wonderful 2012! Here’s to a fabulous 2013! Cheers!!!!
