Fab Five: Favorite Posts of 2012

This time of year, everyone is coming out with their "Best of 2012" Lists, from movies to books to music.  Since I had such a great time taking photos and creating posts this year, I am listing my favorite post of the year.

Before I go forward with the list, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for reading and following my blog this year.  Because of this blog, I have gone places and seen things around my state that I never experienced before.  I'm looking forward to doing more exploring with my camera in 2013, and I hope you stick around to witness the journey.

Also, I especially want to thank Jenny Matlock at "Off On My Tangent", Lanaya at "Raising Regan", Jay at "Crafty Spices", Paula at "Sincerely, Paula" and Ramona at "Create With Joy" for your fun blog hops (they are great for sparking my creativity), and Claudia at "Images by CW" for your amazing photo blog (your pictures are truly an inspiration).

Without any further ado, here are my top 5 favorite posts of 2012:

5) Milwaukee Museum Mile - where I visited 5 art museums in Milwaukee on a Sunday Free Admission Day.

4) Road Trip: Wisconsin Auto Museum - where I took a trip north to one of Wisconsin's most unique museums.

3) My Hometown: Guitar Town - An exhibition and party celebrating Waukesha, Wisconsin's distinction as a Gibson Guitar Town, due to it being the birth place of Les Paul, the inventor of the electric guitar.

2) The Cutest Parade in Milwaukee: Brady Street Pet Parade - Need I say more?

1) Huzzah! My Very First Trip to the Bristol Renaissance Faire - And I will definitely be going back.

This post is also for the "F" assignment at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.  Click on the link to see more or to add your own fun post.

Happy New Year!!  I hope everyone has an inspirational, educational and fantastical 2013!


  1. Fun to read. I always have trouble deciding what mt favourites are so I admire that you could narrow yours down to five. :)

  2. So nice to look back and reflect at the end of the year. I do love Alphabe-Thursday too!

  3. I don't think I can ever narrow it down to 5 post. Narrowing down to 10 post per mth to highlight has been really tough for me.

  4. Wonderful selection of your Year's best ~ excellent and fun post for F ~

  6. Squeeee! Love the dog parade and the pirate. Fun post for the letter F.

  7. Thank you very much for the shout-out, Jamie, I am truly honored! :)

    It must have been a difficult task to select your fav five. I am not sure I could do that. Hmm, maybe I should try it with 'my fav 5 photos', hmmmm, I'll think about that - LOL

    Thanks again and have a fabulous 2013! Hope to see you there :)

  8. Looks like you had a great year! Wishing you another great one for 2013 :))

  14. What a fantastic post!

    Thanks for the kind words. I feel like that myself. I'm forever looking for alphabet ideas...I think it helps me stay more aware of my surroundings, too.
