WW- Looking Back and Moving Forward - And A New Meme

Hello my friends! Welcome to the New Year!  As I look back on 2012, I have many fond memories and favorite images that captured emotions and moments that I never want to forget. Welcoming a New Year brings hope and promise of new adventures to come. But, it is always fun to look back upon our growth as we make the transition from year to year. I thought I'd take the time to sift through the thousands of images I took in 2012, and select a few favorites to share today. My goodness how my kids have grown!

I want to express my sincere gratitude for each of you who visits my little old blog here. I have made so many wonderful friends through the blogging network and you truly brighten my days. You lift me up when I feel down and urge me to push on when I feel discouraged. I have grown and learned so much over the past year. I am so thankful for the support from each of you!

**I'd also like to introduce a new weekly meme that I'll be hosting starting this Friday! It's a simple link up where you can share your images each week. I like to keep a little log of our weekly activities so that we can appreciate all the little moments we share as a family, and have a journal to look back on someday. I don't always have the time to write much, so gathering moments captured in time through my images has become my journal. I plan to try to use storyboards to create a snapshot of each week and post them here on Friday. I hope to create a year book at the end of the year to give to my kids.

I encourage you to do the same. You can share one image, a few anecdotes, or a photo for each day of the week. Whatever suits you. Just capture those precious memories and share your favorites in a post, then link your posts here on Fridays. Visit friends and encourage one another! Here's a button my sweet friend Sarah created. Please include the button in your post and spread the word to join in. See you Friday!**
