2012 in pictures

I know, I know, I’ve already done a sum up of 2012… but I can’t help myself.  I want to do a picture version for you visual types.  I’ve chosen one – three photos from each month that display my favourite parts of the year.  Some photos you may have seen before, but I’ve tried to select some new ones as well.  Enjoy!

January: 

In January we were in Brazil, and my friends Joy and Myrie spent a few wonderful days with us.  Definitely the highlight of January.

Nuni's Dad took us on a road trip to a town in the mountains called Urubici.  It was such a lovely time.

March:

In March we returned to Canada and made our way back to the Yukon.  I stopped in Vancouver to visit my wonderful relatives.  This is my cousin Mari.  We take a picture like this nearly every time I visit!

We stayed with our good friends Ray and Sonia for the first month while we searched for a place to live.  Sonia and I took many walks around the frozen lake with the doggies.

April:

Not an extremely beautiful photo, but this is what our house looked like in April when we moved in!  It's a great little place.  Cozy.  We are really enjoying it.

    Wonderful pictures of very special people. I love the presentation. The picture of the loon with the ripples reflections in the lake is really outstanding.
