thanks for amusing me with my 12 days of 2012 countdown. i know it's been a bore for some of you (*yawn* Zzz Zzz Zzz). as it seems most years do lately, 2012 came to a quick and sudden end. where does time go?
the final month of the year always starts off with a big celebration. yes, my BIRTHDAY! surprisingly i didn't make such a big deal of my special day this year - i just wasn't feeling it. i worked on my actual birthday, but the following day andrea and i went to bottle and bottega where we painted glass ornaments. i have little to no artistic ability. i literally spent over an hour on my first ornament. although it turned out alright, it left me little time for my remaining two ornaments (sorry lilly and anderson on your boring ornaments!). but it was a lot of fun!
that weekend we attended the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus Holiday concert. we had never been before, but having a few friends in the chorus we happily attended. it was cute and quite enjoyable. afterwards we met up with a few friends for drinks to celebrate my birthday (see, low-key!).
the following week we had brickwork done inside our condo. knowing we couldn't both deal with the chaos, i went to work while g stayed at home to oversee everything. the company that did the work did an excellent job. we're very happy with how it turned out - and even happier that it's done!

christmas came out of nowhere, perhaps because of everything that was going on at the start of the month. shortly after the brickwork was completed in our place, i had the christmas decorations put up!

in all, 2012 was a very good year. looking forward to even more excellent memories and great things to come in 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
