I didn't travel as much this year. Two trips to San Jose to visit my mom in April and August. Annual June wedding anniversary vacation with Mike to Royal Hideaway Playacar which I consider to be the best resort we have ever been to. And then we capped the year off with a trip to Punta Cana (our 7th time) for our friend's wedding.
As I look back at some of the mini goals I made in the beginning of the year, I can confirm that I accomplished some of them. I got my craft on and got a sewing machine which lead me to become a Pinterest addict. I am no longer a shopaholic, I limit my spending and really thinking about purchases. I did though, become a huge fan of Etsy, especially Oia Jules shop. This lead to a severe arm candy addiction. To sum up my year, this was the year that I got in touch with my creative side. I searched and tried some DIY projects, I sewed a few little things and I discovered that sometimes it's better to support small independent shops.
As we approach the last day of 2012 tomorrow, I am looking forward to new beginnings and new changes. I want to no longer be afraid of what the future may hold and just take the leap to discover something new or just find myself.
I leave you with some photo collages of 1) my love for arm candy 2) nail art throughout the year 3) crafting and 4) my ombre hair - for years I didn't touch my hair and all in one summer I fried it with bleach. It was fun while it lasted.
What are some of your highlights from 2012?
