2012 was a very good year.
We travelled (a lot), Luke started recording his record, I settled into my work life, we went to many weddings, watched Colbert and Arrested Development, listened to NPR, shared the Sunday New York Times, slept in, talked about our Tempurpedic mattress daily over a year after its purchase, and got ready to welcome a baby.
Our year in pictures:

Roller Derby in support of my co-worker Jean
We pause this retrospective for a torrid driveway shot
Nashville- Chicago- Michigan trip: Feist at the Ryman; Clint & Kelly get hitched; we meet Maeve and Fiona; celebrate Susie's upcoming wedding in Kalamazoo
Dallas for John Irving lecture (literary bucket list, CHECK)
Then this happened:
But I didn't quite believe it so after a quick trip to Walgreens
I had to.
Luke returns from Bonnaroo; I go to St Louis for Ben and Ashleigh's wedding.

Visits from friends and family, and one last little trip, to Dallas, for music/food/travelling for travelling's sake.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2013, my friends!
