New Year’s Eve // 2012

End of the year!  (And post 777)

I guess it’s obvious and important to note that I couldn’t capture EVERYTHING, but hopefully looking back one day, this blog can serve for quick reminders of good moments and memories.

To round out the “Things I’m Thankful For” series…  my parents, Henning, Penny, family members unnamed, everyone who has been kind to me and probably those who haven’t.  Thank you to anyone who inspired me, anyone who included me and anyone who let me include them.

Below is the lazy man’s collection of photos I found when cleaning out my phone, in random order.  Most of them are from 2012.
All have something positive in them.

Michigan—Day 4

Before heading back south, we drove from Mackinaw City across Mackinac Bridge to St. Ignace.  Stopped by the Ojibway Museum which was cute, interactive and of course with some great art souvenirs.  I love me some art…

We spent the rest of the day in St. Johns for a Memorial Day feast at Jamie’s parents house, and to hang out with the family.  I had so much fun, I forgot to take pictures!
