It’s a Hard Knock Life: UPDATE

Since I’ve alerted all of you to this fiasco, I thought I should let everyone know that my wallet has been found and is now back in my possession where it belongs.

Bring on Lucky 13!

Here it is! The obligatory end-of-the-year slideshow! I hope this 2012 recap brings a little bit of joy into your New Year’s Eve, and serves as an album for the future.

There are so many tough things we can remember about 2012, but so many happy and awesome things too – the birth of babies, weddings, 60th birthdays, new jobs, amazing trips, and Army almost beating Navy (heartbreaker). Tonight as the ball drops, hug your loved ones and think back on all the good things that 2012 has brought us. It can only get better in Lucky 2013.

My love to you all and Happy New Year – I can’t wait to spend the next year (and many more) at your sides!
