Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! I can't believe I have managed to keep this blog going consistently for an entire year.  It's that time where I get to reflect back on this past year.  2012 was one of the most challenging years I've had so far financially (and therefore emotionally).  Husband-face and I both faced long stretches of unemployment and if it weren't for our savings account we may have lost our home. While this was definitely one of the most stressful things I have had to go through this challenge taught me a lot and gave me some much needed down time.  I learned to live on a very frugal budget (this coming from a person with a severe addiction to shoe shopping). I also was able to take two amazing trips and spend some quality time with my nieces and nephew (who I obviously adore).  I look forward to 2013: the travel I have planned, the new job challenges and my continued quest towards living a healthier, greener and more compassionate life (hippie). 

Tonight I look forward to indulging and celebrating with some of my closest friends.  I'm ready for tomorrow's hangover, bring it on!  From me and mine to you and yours, cheers!

And here are some photos of my holiday season so far (there's still one night left!).  I guarantee these won't get scrapped until June 2013.

Happy Birthday husband face!
