As 2012 comes to a close, I decided to make a collage of some of my favorite moments from the past 366 days (leap year y’all). Because really, a picture is worth a thousand words. (But videos are worth a billion. However, some moments are better off not being relived in live form.)
If you are in any of these photos, thanks for standing next to me in them. If it’s a solo-Sarah shot, thank you to whoever took it. I probably whined until you took one that I liked.
Thank you 2012, we had a lot of ups, downs, diagonals and backwards moments but overall you were pretty fun and awesome. Concerts, graduations, vacations, nights out, nights in, new friends, hair dye, quads, champagne brunches, birthdays, countdowns, Disneyland, Coachella, and mega millions to name just a few. 2013 you have some big shoes to fill. Let’s start it out by singing bad karaoke to ring in the new year.
Last night my parents told me we were going to a family dinner since it was my last night at home. My super psychic sense must have been tingling and thank god I actually took the time to look half decent because it actually turned out to be a “Surprise, Sarah graduated!!! Congratulations!” dinner party.
My immediate and extended family showed up to my favorite Mexican restaurant in San Juan Batista to celebrate my milestone marker. I had a margarita, enchiladas, and chocolate mousse and could not have been happier. I even teared up a bit when my dad did a toast in my honor.
Last night was also the first night I got to meet little Mollie, the newest edition to my extended family. At a mere 3 weeks old she honestly couldn’t be any more adorable if she tried.
Thank you to my family who came to dinner, it means the world to me. I love being around family and the little munchkins.
