Happy New Year from Beatsville

It is hard to say good bye to 2012. It was a year I couldn't wait to meet and it exceeded all my expectations. There were hard times, difficult moments, but even in those, much was learned. Love, love, love.

I baked a fruitcake, made stuffed mushrooms and Swedish meatballs, foods from New Year's Eve past, my childhood. Jacob baked a brie. August and I made a video to greet 2013. We watched movies all cozy in bed. Jacob and I shared a bottle of champagne and wondered what 2025 would be like together, when we are 12 years older.

As we move forward, I decided that of all the years, I will carry this one with me forever.  I have room. Carefully packing it up, heedfully storing it. I know I will always be able to see it when I want to. All I have to do is look into his eyes.

i had to turn right around and watch it again! you two are quite the cute pair, and august getting excited and waving all jolly just made me smile here quietly to myself. the tiny secret perfections of bringing up your baby, being together all the time, nestling her close and seeing each of her expressions. every day takes all of yourself, engaged. and it is a beautiful thing. i can't wait to see the adventures the new year brings. happy 2013!
