Farewell 2012

My final post for the year is a mix of things and some flashy gifs. I am sad to see this year end and delighted it has. I am looking forward like every new year with intrepidation and excitement but 2013 will be the biggest year of my life so far, and this one was huge.

So dear readers to help you with a list of New Year greetings here you go.

Some musings:

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...”         ― Alfred Tennyson

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow" - Albert Einstein.

And one to consider more...

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. ~Bill Vaughan

Happy New year one and all. 

Farewell and goodbye 2012, 

Welcome 2013.
