Top 12 in 2012

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!

To celebrate the end of 2012, I thought I might put together a list of your favorite recipes (based on amount of views, searches, likes, and comments) and my favorite posts, just for something a bit fun and different!

This past year has been a very good one overall. Nothing extreme happened in my life, which I’m ok with – no news is good news, in my opinion! I got to spend lots of valuable time with my immediate and extended family, and now have wonderful memories from those times. I continued great friendships and made some new ones, got further in my education (which in a way freaks me out – I’m almost done with my undergrad degree), relived the best experience of my life with you all, and furthered my love of writing and cooking partially by way of this blog! So, that being said, I’d say 2012 was a good year indeed. 🙂
