Wow! I can’t believe it’s the end of another year. It seems like every year slips by without me really noticing. 2012 has been a challenging year and in a way I am glad that it is over! But I must say, it has also been a year filled with happy memories as well. From my trip to Japan where for the 1st time, I truly felt the meaning of a holiday with no cares in the world, to the purchasing of my new shiny car! It has also been a year where I have stayed put and not lived abroad and this has meant, I have been able to take a year of Japanese class and allow myself to practice and learn more Japanese. Of course, how can I not mention all the awesome food, both from outside of my kitchen and from my own kitchen! Finally, the birth of Ballpen.Girl. I am so excited to see her have her own site now! 🙂 This year, I felt I have taken steps to do the things I love and enjoy in life. I feel 2012 is just a beginning of many things to come! I look forward to more learning, to enjoy and appreciate life and most importantly, to be able to SMILE everyday!
I hope everyone of my friends have a fruitful and healthy 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
