So today is December 31, 2012 and we all know in just a few hours the year will come to a close and a new one will start. There is something about the first day of a new year that attracts us. In reality, we know that there’s no difference in this day than any other.

What can I say about 2012 except it was great – it’s amazing how much can happen in one short year. Here’s to 2013!
