As we get ready to ring in the new year I’ve taken some time to look back on this past year. 2012 was a good year for us, it was also a year of big change.
A year ago, as we got ready to welcome 2012 things were very different. Our beloved kitties, Lily and Laura, were still with us. Anna was still teeny tiny (okay, she’s still tiny, but she was just a wee babe). And, we were still in our little green house in St. Louis.
2012 was good to us in many ways, but it was not without its low points. We have much to be thankful for, much to look back on with smiles, but 2012 also brought us tears and sadness. We said goodbye to our sweet Laura in March and then our dear Lily in November. We miss them terribly but we are so grateful for the years they were part of our family.
This time last year we had no idea what 2012 had in store for us. We had no idea that a year later we would be living in a different city, hundreds of miles from St. Louis. 2012 found us making big decisions and making a huge move, halfway across the country to Seattle. It was hard to say goodbye to our friends and our home but we are enjoying Seattle and settling in.
Even with its low points 2012 was a good year for us. Our girls are healthy, beautiful and full of life. Louis is now part of our family, causing trouble and winning our hearts. Life is good. I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for us.
Happy New Year! I hope you have a wonderful time ringing 2013 with friends and family and I hope the new year holds great things for all of you.
