The year in review. Including selfies. Perhaps the most sybaritic piece of blogger trickery imaginable. But.
Twelve months ago, at just about this same time, I dove headfirst into the changeover of year. So eager to begin again, I didn't stop to consider what had come before, or what the coming year wanted of me.
So. Headfirst with a plan but not much clarity.
I didn't achieve many of my professional goals in 2012. A few pieces of writing published, one or two of which I'm particularly proud, but not on the order of what I had expected of myself. And amidst this certain degree of floundering, I don't want to forget to remember what a beautiful year it really was.
Look at this girl. She was still a baby at the turn of the year. Way back in Japan. It was a lifetime ago.
And then, with a first haircut, suddenly I had a toddler.
