I did lots of other great things in 2012. Like taking care of my family and basking in their love, co-chairing my daughter’s school craft fair, finishing graduate school (!!!!!!), landing an internship and tons of other BIG and small things.

Without a doubt, the thing that has most rocked my life this year is the loss of these two very important people.

My Grandparents D&I

Their absence is felt every day, in so many ways. I will never get used to them being gone. Losing them has taught me so much. And I’m still learning. I don’t know what 2013 will bring. But I know that it will contain some good and some bad. And that I will meet whatever comes to the best of my abilities.

I have felt the arms of the sewing community wrap around me in congratulations, support and hardship. I appreciate you all so much!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!
