A Blogger's Year: Looking Back at 2012

A nice way to review a blogging year is to take the first sentence written from the first post of each month. Here's a look at our 2012, month by month. 

JanuaryLive every day as if it were your last and then some day you'll be right.  ~H.H. "Breaker" Morant (Enjoy Yourself!)

FebruaryIf there is one thing that I have learned in my many decades of life, it is that any given group of women will have some amazing stories to tell, and my knitting group is no exception. (Maggie and the Blessings)

MarchI'm having a little trouble blogging lately, mainly because we are doing so many bloggable things! (Memories at the Window)

AprilIn the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. ~Tennyson (Springtime in New Mexico)


MayI was slow to embrace cell phones, but I'm catching up. (Dialing Back the Calories)

June: We are far from our southern New Mexico desert in every way. (What We've Been Doing Lately)

July: Pretty catchy name for a clothes store, isn't it? (Allsaints Spitalfields)

August: What a summer it has been! (Vacationing in a French Country House)

September: What do you do when your doctor disappears? (The Case of the Disappearing Doctor)

October: One of the first places we visited while in France last summer was the town of Chauvigny in the Vienne  department of Poitou-Charente. (A Day in the 12th Century)

November: City-light diamond necklace at the throat of the mountains... (New Day in November)

December: December may be my favorite time in New Mexico. (A Night Filled With Light)

That was our year, filled with some surprises and more adventures than I might have imagined. I hope that your year was a lovely one.

Happy New Year!

Clair, I smiled when I saw all the skelly heads on your header. :) enjoyed your look back over the year- you've had quite an adventure! Wishing you every happiness in the upcoming year. :) My New Year was very low key- spent the day cleaning & packing for a trip home to see the family. I leave on Saturday & I can't wait! We've got lows in the single digits the next 3 days... brrrr. Hope you're staying warm in Las Cruces!
Happy Days!
