It’s snowing here in Ohio as 2012 draws to a close. How was 2012 for you? For me, it was a year full of growth and change – and in fact, though the year held certain uncertainties for me, in hindsight I can say that they were all very positive changes. In particular I can think of two situations this year when I felt like I was walking into the end of a story only to find that it was instead a very positive new beginning.
This year brought me opportunities to visit new places – like Louisville, and Chicago – and to test my wings professionally. It brought stronger friendships and a deeper appreciation for the people in my life. It even brought a new little dog into my home.
We’re getting ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve tonight with some good friends over lots of munchies, some beer, and a couple games of euchre. Whatever you are doing this night, I hope it finds you reflecting back warmly on the year behind us and optimistically on the year ahead.
And just in case you’re looking for a healthy dish to share with friends tonight, here’s a new recipe I’m trying for the first time. Found it on Pinterest, and it’s not only healthy, but also delicious!
Wishing you a happy and safe new year!
