I never want my blog posts to feel forced or contrived. Right now most everyone is posting about new goals for 2013 or recaps for 2012. I am enjoying reading them, but don't really feel like doing either of those posts right now.
It doesn't mean 2012 wasn't a great year. It was. I got to spend time with my good friend Jessica and meet her hubby. I hit the beach, visited California (where I met Averie and Tiffany), spent time with family and friends, ran 2 half marathons and PR's on one, and found a wonderful running partner and friend.
I do feel like it's ending on a slight down note. But it could be worse, so no major complaining. I will be spending the evening curled up on the couch with Jason, my 2 pups and my sister's dog (we're dog sitting).
It'll be quiet, low-key. No dressing up, no fancy party, no fancy meal. But that's kind of what I want and maybe need right now. Not feeling super festive.
Each year always brings ups and downs. You just hope that the ups outweigh the downs and that you live and learn and grow. So for 2013, I wish you all many many ups! Be safe tonight.
Happy New Year!
