Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

The Best of 2012 in Photos

Happy New Year’s Eve!

This year has just flown by, and almost everyone I know has said they felt the same way. It’s been a year of change, full of new experiences, new adventures, life lessons learned, new perspectives gained, new relationships forged, and old ones strengthened. I can’t help but smile just thinking about the year past. Here are some of my favorites moments captured on “film”.

This blog has been another highlight of 2012 for me and the friends I’ve made through the blog have been such a joy to me over the past year. So as we say goodbye to 2012, my heart is grateful for all the wonderful people whoย are a part of my life, including the readers, the commenters who brighten my day, and the precious relationships created with people I have not yet “met”. You guys are amazing! I wish that 2013 will be the best year yet for each of you. Happy New Year!
