2012 has been a year of flying time. I’ve blinked and its gone. Throughout this year we have loved passionately and cried in joy and in frustration, we’ve laughed hysterically, fought like crazy, pushed buttons and pulled at eachothers heartstrings and now it’s next year!
Here are some major highlights of 2012:
1) everything Leo. He’s learned the basics that truly seem like little miracles. He’s walking and talking and expressing himself and becoming a little man right before our eyes. He’s sleeping more too, which is amazing for all of us. We celebrated his first birthday and all the days & months in between with lots of kisses and cuddles. And we’ve been challenged beyond what we can handle at times but we wouldn’t have it any other way. This kid is amazing and so full of life. We continue to learn and grow leaps and bounds… All of us. 2) Adventures together! Big and small. Florida, Colorado, Michigan, NY, and last but not least, St Kitts. We’ve seen beaches and mountains and friends and family. And we are just so fortunate to have done it as a threesome (well, except for our “girls trip” to FLA ;) ). Each trip has been glorious in its own way. Airports and car rides and endless views have made amazing experiences for little leo. it has been just incredible for mama and daddy to be able to enjoy this special family time. 3) CLE. We are happy in Cleveland. Daily we are grateful to live near nature trails, farmer’s markets, a flourishing downtown, delicious food, fantastic friends, generous family, beautiful countryside, vineyards, lake views, fantastic cultural scenes and our fantastic walkable neighborhood. Yes we miss mountains and abundant everyday sunshine and sometimes think the grass is greener, but things here are really coming together : ) (nod to the zabell’s!) 4) Our happy homestead of three will soon be four! The end of 2012 went out with a bang when we received the amazing news that leo will be a big brother in the summer of 2013! More to come on this news but needless to say, this happy farm is thrilled to grow ; ) So, cheers to two thousand and twelve and away we go!
