2012 Rewind: A Year For The Books

A Champagne Cheers!I might be a little late to this, reviewing my year. But the holidays were such a mad frenzy of activity, I find that only now am I able to sit and reflect. And I admit I was going to skip doing a 2012 review post, until I started thinking about what a truly kick-ass year 2012 was.

So, better late than never, these were the highlights of 2012 for me:

I started running, and ran my first official 5K. (It was Run for The Cure, to boot. Win-win.)

I landed a 3-book deal for my first novel, A Beautiful Heist. (To be published in 2013! Thanks to the goddess for dreams coming true.)

I started making TV and radio appearances.

I spent my first full year blogging for Erica Ehm’s Yummy Mummy Club (and met the woman herself, for the first time, at Social Media Camp here in Victoria).

I turned 40.

I had an entire year symptom-free.

I celebrated 11 amazing years of marriage.

My big boy turned 7; my baby turned 2.

I went to Toronto for an amazing blogging conference, BlissDom Canada, and met some of the most fabulous people out there.

I started speaking professionally.

I spent a glorious 3 weeks in France for our family’s summer vacation.

Did I meet all my goals and resolutions for 2012? Nope. But that’s okay–just leaves more to work on this year. And, as big as 2012 was…2013 is shaping up to be even more sparkly and exciting. Happy New Year everyone. Cheers!
