Happy New Year's Eve, everyone!

Wow... where did December go? Where did this year go? It's so amazing to me how time can go so slowly, and so quickly, all at once.

I've had such a busy, whirlwind December. And, I probably need to dedicate a post just to December alone. There are a million pictures to share- especially since I became a member of Instagram. (Follow me @ lindsaypics!)

But for today, I'm just basking in that one special day a year when you can really wipe the slate clean. Begin again. Start fresh.

2012 for me can probably be summed up in one word: closure.

I thought, initially, I would describe it as a year of change. Because it certainly has been. But along with all of that change has come an amazing sense of closure in a lot of areas in my life.

I have spent a lot of hours in my house, on the river, on the road, reflecting on some of those areas of change and closure.

Relationships. I realized perception isn't everything, and sometimes people do change. Some for the worse, and some for the much, much better. I've learned to let my guard down and raise my standards, all at once. I've found closure and healing and hope, all at once.

Jobs. I've had two this year. I started the year with a company where I built so much- both professionally and personally. And I'm ending the year with a job that has a very bright future for me. Both, incredible blessings. Again, closure- one door shutting, another bright window opening.

Faith. God has opened my eyes to myself this year. I've looked some big insecurities right in the face- and overcome them. Growing, learning, some days on top of the world, and others so very, very humbled.

In years past, I've done a series of blog posts about my resolutions for 2013. And this year, instead of making another "to-do" list, I'm just keeping it generic. There are certainly some goals I would like to achieve this year- but I also am so looking forward to seeing where 2013 takes me. I have a feeling it's going to be a great, big year- and I just want to go along for the ride.

2012; a year of change, closure, growth.
2013: a year to see where all of that change, closure and growth leads.

Have a wonderful New Year's Eve!
