Happy New Year! Before moving on to 2013, let's see how 2012 finished up:
Mark's birthday was awesome. He received many letters from his family and friends wishing him a happy birthday and sharing some sweet memories.
For my goal of doing "something epic" for Mark's 60th birthday, I surprised him with a Caribbean cruise over the Christmas holiday. I disguised the gift as packing in a box with a gift certificate. It took him a minute to figure out what the surprise was, but once he did, he was thrilled! He has always wanted to take a trip for Christmas and I was so happy all the planning and arranging worked out!
We started remodeling our condo in early December. To make the process more tolerable, we moved out of the condo and into my parent's house (thanks, Mom and Dad!). It's been fun being back "home" for the holidays. The remodel is going well, and hopefully will be done in the next three weeks or so.
And finally, our cruise! We sailed from Miami to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to St. Maarten/St. Martin and to St. Kitts. It was beautiful, relaxing, and I highly recommend it!
I hope your 2012 was awesome. Here's to a wonderful 2013!
