In the past year, I've had less to say on the blog than usual, so it seems fitting that a retrospective should be based on photos rather than solely on words.
I decided to choose one photo from each month. They aren't necessarily meant to sum up the year, but I wanted to pick images that I hadn't posted before that caught my eye while I was scrolling through.
The year was marked by unseasonably warm weather, which explains what I was doing at the Kansas City Zoo in January with nephew, niece and sister.
In February I spoke at the IABC Business Communicators Summit. I wore my pixel skull socks for luck.
In May, I got a chance to see the view of Kansas City's Country Club Plaza from the roof of a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed church.
I went to the Renaissance Festival in September with my niece and sister. That's my niece on stage.
December was all about cooking and baking. I hosted a cookie party, got together with my sister and niece for a day of candy making, and made these sugar cookies on my own time to try out the rocket cookie cutter that one of my co-workers made with the company's 3D printer. Keith will recognize the Dalek from the cookie cutters I got from him.
I'm looking forward to an equally active and fun 2013 and wishing you the same!
