This sure has been a long year. I discovered the joy of manicured nails. Pink and white baby ;). A man from Korea made us dance like a horse. E.L James wrote three books that brought bdsm into the mainstream with her trilogy "50 Shades of Grey".

My daughter became a junior at Columbia this year. Mi sobrinito turned two. He's so smart and funny. He's also super bossy just like his auntie.

I had fun this summer with a guy friend who ended up becoming more than just a friend. He taught me how to lighten up a bit and be myself.  Thanks for making this year interesting Z.

There were some sad times. Mi abuelita died. I had the honor of holding her hands as she took her last breath. The next week one of my close friends was killed in a horrific motorcycle accident. Two funerals in 2 weeks. Broke my heart.

George Zimmerman murdered an innocent teenager named Trayvon Martin. A bag of Skittles and an iced tea are not weapons. We're still waiting for justice in that case.

There was a mass shooting in Colorado. Innocent people were killed at the premiere of a Batman movie. Another evil man, Adam Lanza, decided to murder 20 babies, first graders at Sandy Hook Elementary school. Six other staff members were killed.

2012 was a roller coaster of emotions. I went from crying to singing "Call Me Maybe" in the same week. I hope 2013 will be a year of peace, gun control, and a kinder gentler world.



  1. I didn't have a good year in 2012 and 2013 hasn't started out good for me either....however, both of my children will graduate from The University of South Carolina this year. I am so happy about that fact that I could almost shout through this computer.

  2. As a mother of a college student, I am shouting for joy at your news. Congratulations Reggie!!! :)

  3. One of my favorite uncles died yesterday. This year didn't start out particularly well, but I'm hoping that it ends well.

    I'm gonna keep the faith.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that Reggie. You're in my prayers.
