Closing Out 2012

I love dressing up, but I rarely get to get all gussied up in black tie attire!  And New Years Eve is the perfect time to do just that!

I can’t believe it’s already New Year’s Eve!  This year has gone by SO fast!  Overall, it’s been a great year with a lot of truly wonderful moments!  I’m sad to see it go, but I’m very much looking forward to 2013 and where the next year will take me.

Now for some of my favorite moments of 2012…

Best Part Of 2012

Koskores-Caron wedding cake cutting by Dan Doke PhotographyMy wedding!  It was so much fun, such a happy day, and everything turned out perfectly!  We’ll be coming up on our one year anniversary so soon – on February 4th!

Favorite Song / Book / Movie of 2012

Song ~ We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift (this has nothing to do with anyone in my life!  It’s just such a kickass song).

Book ~ The Hidden Reality by Brian Greene.  Yes I am kind of a science nerd, especially when it comes to the universe.

Movie ~ The Dark Knight Rises!  Best. Movie. Ever.
Biggest Accomplishment of 2012
Besides planning a wedding without killing anyone?  Just kidding.  Kind of.

This little blog right here is my biggest accomplishment of 2012!  I just started blogging in April, and I’m shocked by how much Glossy Blonde has grown, and so quickly!  I love you all and thank you so much for your support and your readership!  I’ve got some great things coming up for 2013, so stay tuned! xoxo

Looking Forward To Most in 2013
Moving back to Boston!  Yup, it’s true!  For those who don’t know, Wes and I will be moving back this spring.  At that time, we’ll begin looking for a house in the Boston area!  I can’t wait to be home, and close to our family again.
#1. Get my boutique up and running online.
#2. Get more physical!  Work out on a regular basis, not just sporadically doing Zumba when I feel like dancing.
#3. Get a little more personal.  I am by nature, a very private person, but my readers deserve to know a little more about the girl behind the blog.  So I’ll work on that.
What are your New Years Resolutions???
