I am sorry I have been behind. This post was supposed to be Three Things Thursday, but Tuesday’s post was supposed to be photos from our recent trip to Michigan. Well, I didn’t take any photos.
Also, I missed my wordless Wednesday chance, but this Thursday will be partially wordless anyhow.
Here are some of our engagement photos:

No. 1 — We had our engagement photos taken on Sunday! A good friend of ours, Jason Plotkin, took the photos. I work with Jason at the newspaper and he is a PHENOMENAL photographer. He is amazingly giving, too. He also is a geek like us, and took some awesome geeky shots. I can’t wait to show my family and friends the work he did. And I can’t wait to show off our save the dates!
No. 2 — Speaking of the newspaper, we had some changes this week. Some are not so good, and the others … well, those have yet to be seen. A lot is going to happen at our office in the last six months of this year, and it is going to be a bit of a bumpy road. But if my training has taught me at least something, there is always a downhill to rest your legs after the climb. Things will be figured out, one way or another.
No. 3 — “Country roads, take me home, to a place I belong …” We are heading to Michigan tomorrow! Unfortunately it is under sad circumstances: Jamieson’s great aunt and god mother died. She had been struggling with cancer for a while. There is a memorial and a wake on Saturday. This trip will be tough on us for other reasons, too, because we are leaving Friday night and returning Sunday afternoon — it is a nine-hour drive. But it will be good to see the family and friends again.

Wow. I can’t believe it has been a full year already. 2012 went by so quickly, and many things have happened.
January – March: The weather wasn’t so frightful here, and the warmer winter helped my seasonal depression and running. I went out on the trail a lot. I didn’t get stuck at the bottom of the hill near our apartment. I also tried to give up technology on Sundays. That eventually failed.
April: I tried 50 States, 50 Vegan Dishes. It was my 26th birthday.
May: Three years with Batman. We went to Virginia. What a trip.
Summer: I trained and raced a 10-miler. I loved it, most of the time. I decided to run a half marathon next. I also switched jobs in my office, moving to days and finally having weekends and nights off for the first time in five years. Also, I had my first yard sale. My dad almost had a second heart attack.
Fall: The new schedule made working on the farm that much more difficult. Earlier in the summer, I decided to take a break from blogging, but came back for Vegan MoFo. That didn’t go as successfully as I would have hoped. Plus, I burnt apple butter. We moved into a new apartment, and realized it wasn’t the best decision we ever made; it was quite possibly the worst of the year.
Winter: I tried NaNoWriMo and realized that I can’t write on a timeline. I prefer reading on a timeline. My Pop wasn’t doing so well and he went into a nursing home. I got ENGAGED!
YES, Batman is marrying Wonder Woman. Watch out, world.
2012 was quite an eventful year, with a few changes. I am hoping 2013 will be even better, with a wedding to plan (not until 2014, so hold off, people), pounds to lose, races to race, books to read, posts to write and trips to take. Also, I hope to check things off my bucket list.
Happy 2013, everyone!
