Happy 2013!

It’s Monday, January 7th and for me this means back to life, back to reality, back to work. It also means 16 days to catch you up on since my last post right before a much needed winter vacation from reality and work! And I’ve got to tell you, A LOT can happen in 16 days: a mini road trip to Northern California for the holidays, a day in San Francisco getting to know the real Walt Disney, Christmas in Santa Cruz with my boyfriend’s family, a surprise trip to Carmel, good food, good company, A LOT of eating, A LOT of movie watching, and A LOT of time reflecting and resetting for a new year.

Despite the happiness, then bumpiness, chaos, and missing cheer that came with this past Holiday season; I have to say, the magic of the Holidays as we got closer and closer to Christmas turned things around in an instant and the spirit of the season made for a very memorable and happy ending to 2012.

So sit back, relax, and take a short journey with me as I relive (okay, catch up because I’m seriously behind) on blog posts sharing all of the fond moments over the last 2 weeks and to wrap up a very challenging, but life changing year. The good news is those Mayans couldn’t have been more wrong and we made it to an uncharted 2013 calendar year.

Here’s to the year I’m believing that dreams come true. The year I turn the big 3-0. (Luckily, I still have quite a few months more to adjust and absorb this unbelievable fact!) And the year that All That Glitters, will be more luminous than ever. I can’t wait to see what happens!

Happy 2013! Cheers! 🙂
