2012 Year in Review {Where did the time go?}

Golly, is it really 2013 tomorrow? It seems that the older I get the faster the time goes. When I was a kid it felt like the days rolled by at a very lazy pace but now they seem to zoom. I wish I could figure out how to slow it all down just a bit. At least taking a moment to stop and reflect on what I accomplished in 2012 will allow it to linger for one fleeting moment before the calendar clicks over. So welcome to my 2012 Year in Review post aka Where did the time go?!

This year was a year of tremendous growth for my blog – and I mean that literally – my numbers have grown by over 3,000% (yep, that’s three THOUSAND percent!) Pretty nifty! But back when the year began I wasn’t posting regularly and giving my blog the TLC I am today…

All the sparkly peacock’s that I’ve been seeing are ideal for ringing in the New Year, so I am happy to present to you a sparkly Peacock Blue Happy New Year’s Eve Party!

It’s the day before Christmas and all through my house…. oh, forget it! Christmas is coming and I’m not quite ready yet! There is still wrapping to do and a bit of baking… fortunately, I’m not all that stressed about it. It will be what it will be…  The good news is my Christmas Table Setting is ready and I’m quite happy with it! Remember my Christmas centerpiece? Well, here’s how the rest of the table came together!
