Whew! What a year it’s been. 2012 was our first full year living apart. Being separated from your twin by an ocean for so long does not seem natural, but Lar and I have found ways to make it more bearable. I’ve busied myself with work, school, blogger events and travel (Denver and Edinburgh – duh) while Lar put down roots in Edinburgh, made new friends and travelled (Greece and Turkey). This blog has also been one of the best ways of staying in touch with each other and helping to ease those I-miss-my-twin-sister/best-friend-so-much-I-could-cry moments. So dear readers, thank you for sticking with us through our separation – your comments are such mood lifters!
Even though Lar and I will be separated for most of 2013, I’m excited for the year ahead – we’ve already started planning another family European vacation (whether or not we have enough money for it is a whole other issue!). But before I get carried away with posts about future hopes, travels and new year’s resolutions, let’s take a quick look back on the 2012 AsianCajuns blog. Below are the top five posts of 2012:
Two: My post about the clothes worn by the women in Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom. A few days after this post went live, someone from the company that designs the gold necklace that Emily Mortimor wears in the show (pictured below) contacted me with a direct link to the necklace. If you love this piece as much as I do and have, ahem, $1400 to spare, you can buy the necklace for yourself
Five: Our Feiyue give away made it to the top five! Even with all of the entries, the winner ended up being a local Atlanta friend. If you’re in the market for the perfect pair of summer sneaks, I highly recommend these.
See you all next year!
As I’m writing this, you’re somewhere over the Atlantic flying back to Edinburgh. I really hope Delta gives out free champagne to celebrate flying into the new year. Troy and I will be keeping it low-key tonight: dinner and a few movies with friends. The only thing missing is you and Matt. *sigh* I’ll never get use to you being far from me! At least we had a wonderful two weeks together. Skype date this Sunday?
Safe travels! Love and miss you!!!!
