Top 12 Moments of 2012: Photo Essay.

2012 was easily one of the greatest years of my life. While it wasn’t always easy, I have learned a lot about myself these past 12 months and have continued to grow. I reached goals, faced fears, and became a better version of myself through it all. Without a doubt, this was one year I will never forget.

There have been some truly incredible moments this year, but I have somehow managed to narrow it down to my top twelve. If you wish to read more about each event, you can click on the photo.

It’s been a pretty fantastic year, and I wouldn’t change a thing. Here’s hoping 2013 is even better, and with the plans I have for it, I truly think it will be.

    I love how you wrote “HEARING and seeing Victoria Falls.” I’m sure all that water makes a lot of sound! We don’t get that in photographs.
