Looking back on 2012

What a year it has been! Here’s a look back on my 2012, month by month.

January
I turned 28! I had a lovely birthday dinner at Hogtown Vegan with a wonderful group of friends.

February
On February 14th, Chad turned 28 and then later that month, on the 29th, we got married! We had a small ceremony at city hall with close friends and family. It was perfect.

March
In March we attended a going away party to say goodbye to our good friends Sarah and Kevin as they started a new chapter of their lives in Calgary, Alberta. We miss them so much!

April
April is when the cherry blossoms bloom and it was my first time seeing them in High Park. It was lovely!

I also went to Wishing Well Sanctuary to help out with a few friends. That’s where we met this cutie, Jinx the goat.

May
In May, I took it easy, but went back to Wishing Well to volunteer at their first Open House.

June
June was a busy month! I started my blog! Chad and I had a BBQ at my Aunt and Uncle’s house to celebrate our marriage with my extended family. It was so much fun! We had found these foam swords on craigslist and we had a great big sword fight! Also in June was the World Wide Knit in Public Day and I visited Wychwood Barns for the first time.

July
Jen and Jamie’s Stag & Doe! Erin and Steve’s Wedding! Lots of love and lots of fun!

August
Chad and I went on our first camping trip together to Arrowhead Provincial Park near Huntsville. There’s nothing like roasting vegan marshmallows over a camp fire.

September
We had to miss the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival, but we did get to see my cousin Jen marry her sweetheart, Jamie, in September.

October
Thanksgiving! Toronto Zombie Walk! Halloween! October is always a fun month!

November
November saw the start of regular fur protests in downtown Toronto to combat. It felt really good to get involved again in animal rights.

December
Snother busy month to cap off the year! Cookie exchange, Fur Never Fashion Party, A Day In Their Skin at Lush, Shut Your Traps demonstration at Holt Renfrew and of course, Christmas with my family.

It’s been real 2012, but I’m looking forward to 2013 and all of the wonderful possibilities it offers!
