We're quickly approaching 2013 as all of you know already! This year, I have been generally in the happy blissful zone and avoided any type of drama..kinda. It has been mostly ups and little downs. In fact, nothing to complain about really. I was having difficulty jotting down my thoughts and reflection of this past year so I will make a list instead. Did you notice how much I love making lists?!
