Where did the year go?

by Lisa on Saturday: Dec 29, 2012

There’s officially only two days left in 2012 after today, and I don’t know if you feel the same way, but for me, 2012 flew by in a whirlwind. I know other bloggers are doing their yearly recaps, and I figured now would be a good time for me to do the same. I was going to go month by month, but then I realized that there were some months that went by rather uneventfully, so let’s just focus on the highlights!

D and I took a trip down to New York City! It was the first time he and I had ever gone down together, though we both had spent a good deal of time there separately at various times before we met. The main reason for going down was to see Bjork in concert:

And we also saw Spiderman: Turn off the Dark

In March, we got our geek on and went to see Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds at the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It was actually a great show, even though historically I haven’t been much of a FF fan, but the orchestra played the music from all the games and we had a great time.

In June, we took our first big vacation of the year and went to Vegas! I had been wanting to go to Vegas for quite some time, but never had the opportunity. This was an amazing trip and it felt like we were in a different world. Neither of us had ever been in a desert environment before! We did some gambling, saw some shows and ate at a lot of delicious restaurants.

My 29th birthday! Let the last year of my twenties begin.

(Yes, we have a triple birthday every year for me, my mother and my brother)

We had been waiting all year for this one – our trip to Disney World!

No pictures for this one, but this was the biggest accomplishment of the year. I finally finished paying off my massive student loan debt!!

And those were the highlights of the year! Looking back, it was a pretty good one, and I’m so happy we got to do all the traveling that we did. Next year will be a lot lighter in the travel department because we’ll be saving up our money to hopefully buy our first house.

What’s the biggest thing you’ll remember from 2012?

  1. We were at Disney in September too!

    My student loans will probably never be paid off in full. I’ve got a lot of them.

      That’s so cool you were there in Sept. too! September really is a great time to go down to Disney.

      I had $95k in student loans and I thought I was never going to pay them off. Don’t lose hope!
