Welcome 2013



A big, resounding WELCOME to 2013!

I have yet to do a recap of my 2012; I haven’t picked which of my four planners I’ll be using this year (I hoarded a lot didn’t I? One was a gift to me, while the three were purchased). Then there’s still my One Little Word for 2013 to decide on (Start was my word for 2012). So for my first post this year, I refer to the first one of last year’s: Hello 2012!

Putting in more thought and being more deliberate in my posts was my big blogging resolution, and I think I pretty much nailed that one. As much as I could, I resisted doing any post I wasn’t going to be proud of (well maybe except one post).

With the help of the BC Bloggers Comments Exchange program, I was also able to engage more with other bloggers; outside of that circle, I also tried to be a more active blog hopper, and not just stalk the blogs on my Reader. Smile

Just before 2012 went bye-bye, WordPress.Com sent me this annual review of for the blog. It looks really nice! Check it out: http://jetpack.me/annual-report/10617014/2012/ I wonder how this year’s will look like?

We’re three days into 2013 and everyday I’ve woken up to a full house. My family is as complete as it could ever be. The parents are home, the boyfriend too, my brother, sister-in-law, and the apple of everyone’s eyes – Amir! So I don’t think it will be too much to say that 2013 is a blessed year. I feel it in my bones. Smile

Happy new year everyone, and from my family to yours, we wish you all the very best!

Four planners? I am hopeless with planners. I think I manage to fill them until the 1st quarter then several months go to waste and then I start writing sometime in the middle of the year again. Sayang ang planner sa kin lol!
