Another year come and gone and another dress size up – right?!

I love Christmas and the holiday season – entertaining, food and of course, family. There is something quite magical about New Year’s Eve. It’s a time to reflect on the past year – the ups and down, victories and feats – and make some decisions for the new year.

Or not.

When the clock strikes twelve, it’s the dawn of a new year – for some, a chance to start brand new. For others, just a new day.

I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions but I do like to make some goals for the year. I will likely be thinking about what I want to accomplish over the next few days and start making new lists (on paper)… and hopefully start to cross them off, one by one, as the time goes on in 2013.

But in the meantime,  I want to sit back and reflect on the past year. And with the help of some Facebook applications, I created a Year in Photos and a Year in Status:
