December 31, 2012


It seems as if 2012 flew by faster than any other year, and it's hard to imagine we're heading into 2013 already. I think I grew more in this year than I'd ever thought I would have, and challenged myself sometimes more than I would have liked. I left my college friends to move to Washington, D.C. for an internship during my last semester, graduated, went through the {almost never-ending} stress of job searching, found a job, volunteered at the Republican National Convention, and realized how much I wanted to return to D.C. after volunteering for the 2012 Presidential campaign. 

I'm still working on that "return to D.C." part, which will hopefully happen in 2013, but until then, I think it's safe to say 2012 went really well. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the year.

Happy New Year.

{The balloons were up to our knees, and even waist in some areas!}
