Guess I missed to post a lot to update you with what’s going on in my life this year… I saw the post of Michi of Michiphotostory summarizing the highlights of her year and I think of doing the same para makabawi for the months I missed blogging.
2012 is a very challenging year for me however, looking back from the start of the year, I can’t deny all the blessings I received and the goals I achieved... I will then be highlighting all my firsts for this year.
