2012 in Review

2012 was quite a traveling year for us! In January and February I took the boys on a road trip from Utah to Houston, Texas, Kentucky, Alabama, Albuquerque and back stopping many places in between and seeing good friend along the way. It was quite the adventure driving most of it by myself, the boys were such troopers.

We took several trips to Zion’s National Park and the St George area, San Diego, Disneyland, Idaho, Yellowstone National Park, and explored many places in the Salt Lake Valley.

We took another road trip back to Kentucky where we anxiously awaited the return of husband and father from Afghanistan.

Then of course the grand adventure of boarding a plane to Germany where we will be spending the next several years. We’ve already explored some fabulous places in the 3 months we’ve been here including a fun trip to Paris. We plan to do a lot of traveling next year as well, and this time I won’t have to do them alone. 

I Got my free LDS Temple photography site up and running and added quite a few temples to the collection.

Added a free printable Homeschool Daily Planner to the site and shared a peek into a day in our homeschool life

Began the “real food” journey eliminating processed foods from my families diet (except for holidays and weekends), shared several tips for getting started with real food, the 10 day real food challenge, several real food recipes and a host of related resources.

Shared a 5 week plan to a healthier home through eliminating toxic chemicals as well as an organic living guide which details the many toxins present in our environment, why they are harmful and what we can do about it.

Announced the expectation of a little girl joining our family and shared some of my favorite baby girl things that I finally get to buy.

And shared this fun tutorial on creating these stylish hair clips to take a ponytail from frumpy to fabulous.

I’m looking forward to the next year and all that it will bring. I will continue to update the goings-on of our family life and our adventures in Europe, share some travel tips, homeschooling activities and resources, lots of recipes, hopefully a few more European temples and perhaps even a craft or two. Hope you’ll join me!
