Weekly Photo Challenge-My 2012 in pictures

As the year begins to come to a close many people often take a moment to reflect and to look back on their lives and everything that has happened over the last year. To reflect on the good, the bad, the funny, and the moments they wish they could relive again and again.

My husband and I just celebrated our five-year anniversary (since our first date), so we have enjoyed looking back on not only on the last year, but the last five. We have been fortunate enough to see some of the most amazing places on Earth and have so many good memories from our short time together.

The Weekly Photo Challenge came at the perfect time. Here’s a recap of our 2012. Happy New Year!

    Looks like you had a great year! Two cruises and a Vegas trip sounds like a lot of fun. (By the way, love your Vegas shot of all the lit-up signs!).

      2012 had it’s ups and downs, but overall it was a great year! πŸ™‚ We were able to see so many places that have been on our “list” for quite a while. That photo in Vegas was taken on Freemont Street, definitely a fun place to visit if you go to Las Vegas.

    What a great blog post. Its great seeing some of the fun things we’ve been blessed enough to experience together. Here’s to the next five years and the great pictures we will surely take together.

    BTW my favorite is the one where you are on the beach hazing out over the ocean. You must have sat there for a half an hour and I sat there smiling as I knew there was no other place on earth you would rather be. Its still one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken of you (God knows there have been a lot). Love you sweetheart!
