Ronnebeck Recap 2012

 Ronnebeck Recap is mostly pictures this year (just how I like it)! I like to think sometimes that I am good with words, but this year, words have failed me, and my blog has been suffering. I think in the new year I'll be back, but we'll see how I feel. Sometimes I think that it's due time I retire my bloggy ways, and then I get a spurt of energy to post! I spend more time talking about blogging than I do actually blogging. Either way, thank you for sticking it out with me, and for checking in from time to time. I really do enjoy having a place to dump my thoughts and to keep track of my life year after year.

A few sad memories from this year, but a lot of great memories too! Thank you God for the many blessings we've enjoyed! So, sit back and reminisce with me, here is our year in review!

2012 was a busy year, I didn't find pictures - they're buried a little too deep, but I also got to hang out with my dear friend John Talcott quite a bit this year after going nearly 7 years without seeing him. I had season tickets to the Rat City Rollergirls, and cheered LOUD, and loved life, every day!

Thanks for taking my journey... I know there are things that were missed... but I'm so thankful for such a wonderful year!

Happy Christmas, Happy New year, and Happy life!
