Miss B.

Congrats young lady! You accomplished quite a lot, so now we need to talk about one day soon having fun and re-designing your blog, no? It's like getting a new pair shoes. I am sure 2013 will be filled to the brim with excitement + adventure.


What a great way to look at the big thing...growing my own pumpkin patch. Although, no pumpkins came in, I'm happy I made the time to harvest a little section in my garden. Maybe in 2013 I'll actually get pumpkins!


I like the way you think! In 2012, I saw a movie alone. An "accomplishment?" No. But something I needed to do to prove to myself that it's really not that big a deal? Yes. And it felt good.

Cheers to 2013!


Such a lovely post, Anne. I'm all about starting fresh, and resetting and eating healthy and focusing on the New Year, but I also like to look back. Each passing year doesn't have to be locked away behind a door...I think it's nice to reminisce, but I agree that it's best to dwell on the good, not the bad. Here's to a great 2013! And more poetry reading/writing!


congrats on your first solo apartment! such an amazing feeling. you have done so much this year, you should be joyous when you think back!

i have also been dwelling in 2012 - so much happened i'm reluctant to just let it go! i got married, traveled a ton, became an aunt for the 2nd and 3rd time, finished my MBA and got successfully involved with a cause i believe in (marriage equality)... 2013 is a blank slate which is equally exciting and terrifying! happy new year!


I'm a dweller too and I also write so I think you have something there. Everything I see now causes me to think about something in the past, then I want to write about it.

I love that you include and appreciate new experiences in your things that happened this year like being a redwood tree hugger ;-)

For me, I learned to use my dslr and furthermore it was in manual! I'm bowing now thank you very much.

Happy new year, congrats on an abode for one.

Kudos yo you, Anne!
Great post...I am getting back to designing. I am so
grateful for the Boston Globe and what they stood up for and believed in ...I know in someway I made a difference this year. Which I will continue to do. ox, maureen


Hmmm. 2012 joy? I graduated law school. Got my first real career full time job. Turned 30. And learned to make the best pancakes known to human kind! Congrats on your accomplishments this year Anne!


I LOVE this post, it's very inspiring, can't beat a bit of personal growth to spur you on!


Meeting some phenomenal, inspiring new people.
