Are you out there in Time Square this year watching the glowing ball drop? Are you going to ring in the new year with a million friends at a big party?
If you are, enjoy a bit of the wild rumpus for me too. I'm here in my warm and tiny home with my warm and tiny kids celebrating in a much more quiet fashion.
It's nice to look back on 2012 and think of all the things that happened. So many incredible moments.
As much as I love excitement, my favorite times over the last year have been spent with my family, often at the dinner table. We often like to ask each other to share the best and worst part of our day.
The worst part of this year was the pace at which it flew by. I guess I'm starting to sound like an old person here, but it's true that time passes too quickly for my taste. My little small kids are already not so small. The 7 yr old is starting to wonder how much longer it will take to become taller than me. I'm thinking, not that long.
The best part of 2012 for me was the family vacation to Japan. Sometimes it's not easy for me to find a clear winning part of the year, but this year it was pretty easy to pick.
Here's hoping that your New Year's Eve is cozy and that 2013 brings you peace.
