But, I have been Instagramming the crap out of my life, and for those of you without IG or who jumped ship a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd compile these last couple of weeks of 2012 for you, here, in celebration.
And for those of you who didn't get me your address in time, or just didn't ask for a card, here's the family holiday photo we sent out:
I almost made them into magnets, but that ended up nixed to save time and sanity.
Since it's the very last day of the year, I suppose I should have some reflection here about everything 2012 was and wasn't, but I'm not actually sure what that would be. As it is every year, there were ups and downs, good and bad, struggles and lucky breaks, unexpected happenings in every vein, and moments I hope to always remember, even if it's that I never want to withstand them again.
That's just life.
I don't know what 2013 has in store for me and my family. All I can do is hope for the best, keep going forward, and keep my head up.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday season, and that tonight when the ball drops, you're surrounded by people you love, are grateful for the year we're leaving behind, and for the grace of another year to live.
