The Best Instagram of 2012

I’ve spent the last few days trying to figure out how I’d sum up our 2012, trying to find the words to put it in a “nutshell”.  It’s the last day of the year 2012 and I feel like I should have something profound to say about where we’ve been this year,  where we’ve come from and where we’re going.

The thing is, I don’t.  It’s been hard, it’s been emotional, it’s been joyful and silly, it’s been lice infested and sunshine kissed.  It’s been almost all things and as we watch it come to a close tonight all I really have to say is “Is it bedtime yet?”.

I don’t believe anything magical happens at midnight tonight.  The transition from Dec 31 2012 to Jan 1 2013 holds no more power than the Mayan’s prediction of the end of the world.  I think New Year’s Resolutions are an excuse to behave poorly a few days longer and gives reason to accept failure “So I didn’t quit smoking.  It sucks but it was just a stupid New Year’s Resolution anyways”.  Nothing in life get’s accomplished sitting on your butt waiting for tomorrow to happen, so don’t wait.  If you want life to change, get up, today, right now and make a change.

All that being said a new year holds new things.  Birthdays and anniversaries, new adventures and great lessons.  So here’s to 2012 – it’s been a slice!

I did set out for this to be short…and then it wasn’t.  As for the title, I went through my bazillions of Instagram photos today and picked my favourites from 2012!
