It’s Inauguration Day! I am such a sucker for pomp and circumstance and tradition and democracy and America! My goodness. How wonderful and great (however, I was a little disappointed to learn yesterday that Barack Obama was already sworn-in to office, but we can’t have everything all the time).

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).

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