Rather than pinning my hopes on the year ahead, I often feel it's important to reflect on the year that's passed and what I've learnt from it.
2012 has been a mixed year for me, but I've learnt a lot, both personally and professionally. I've enjoyed growing the blog and all the new people I've got to know 'virtually'. Blogging has also brought me a lot of opportunities, which I'm really grateful for.
Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings over the year - whether you've been a regular follower or just drop in from time to time - all visits, comments, mentions and tweets mean so much to me and are greatly appreciated.
Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful festive break, and I'll be back cooking, photographing and blogging in 2013!
