Highlights of 2012...part 3

NYC trip
I was lucky enough to return to NYC in October!! I spent a few days in the city seeing all of my favorite people and then spent a few days in Queens hanging out with all the fam and the cousins. Everyone was there to celebrate my Aunt Juliet’s 90th birthday and it was as always, a good time!

Denver trip
Shortly after I returned from NYC, I headed to Denver for a conference for work. Traveling for work is kind of lovely for a couple days, although I don’t think Denver would be my choice destination. I did get to meet up with Melanie, see the Denver Art Museum, and explore the 16th Street Mall.


Elton John in Vegas
One weekend in October, I went to St George with the parents. October is the perfect time to get away to St George! It’s still warm enough to lay out but not so hot that you feel like you’re going to melt! The real reason for the trip was so that my dad and I could go to Vegas to see Elton John in concert!!!!! I had seen him in a couple free shows (one in Rome and one in NYC) so I knew it would be a good show! Me and my dad had a great time!

Jen and Russ's wedding
The last weekend in October, several of my NYC friends came into town to celebrate the wedding of Jen and Russ!!!!! It was so wonderful to be there to celebrate with them!

Bookbinding class
I signed up for a bookbinding class at the U in the fall. I took a class in college and loved it but had forgotten everything. It was a fun activity even though I didn’t finish any of my projects…ooops!

El Salvador trip
For Christmas this year, my family decided to go on a vacation together instead of doing a big Christmas at home with gifts and such. BEST. IDEA. EVER!!! We spent a week in El Salvador and it was fantastic! We were in San Salvador for a couple days then we headed to a beach resort for some R & R. The weather was perfect, the resort was great, and it was fun to spend time with my fam!!

I guess looking back on 2012 it was not a terrible year. I’m excited for 2013 and the adventures that it will hold!!
