2012 = Love, Love, Love

This time last year I wrote a post saying that 2012 was going to be the year for love and I’m pleased to say I was right. With eleven weddings, nine engagements, eleven babies born including my beautiful niece and gorgeous nephew plus five more babies currently baking – that adds up to a whole lotta love (and quite a lot of bedroom based shenanigans)! In addition to that is the love I’ve felt and shared with my wonderful friends and family through all the ups, downs and in betweens of the year.

So Mr Right didn’t come along although Mr ‘Maybe? Nah, not so much’ put in a brief appearance and I still have a bottom that is bigger than I would like but this year has been very useful in terms of learning a) how far I’ve come since I went loopy and b) realising I’m doing okay as I am. I turned 30 and realised that it wasn’t so scary, got a new job which I love, found some direction in my life and made some utterly brilliant new friends.

Last but not least, my favourite text this year. I hope he means 'lots of love', otherwise..... awkward!

I’m going to be spending this NYE with the Urban Family and our usual murder mystery party. I’ll be wearing a dress that is the sartorial equivalent of a Tequila Sunrise and no doubt you’ll hear all about it on the flip side. I hope you have great fun tonight ringing in the New Year and that 2013 brings you everything you wish for. Seeing as I called it so excellently on the love theme for 2012, I’m going to decree that 2013 is going to be the year for adventures. Anyone care to join me?
