Looking Back: 2012 in Blogging

I know it's been a week and a half since New Years, but I thought it would be nice to take a look back at 2012 on The Polka-dotted Jellyfish. It's actually so rewarding to blog and document your life. Looking through the archives and picking out these pictures really brought back such pleasant memories. Let's take a trip through Maggie's year, shall we?

In 2012, I...


...went to California and tasted my first In-N-Out

and jumped for joy,


...found five things,

...bought my first red lipstick,


...became consumed in quite a big project,


quite BIG indeed,

...kicked off the summer with a rooftop barbecue,


...wrote a little story,

...found an everlasting love,


...went to Puerto Rico,

and made a video,

...created a beach on my arm,


...concocted some rose gold,

...became 3 people in 1 post,

...created a design about depression,


...ended the summer with some fishin'

and welcomed the fall with some pretty colors,

...said 'bye bye' to brights,

and said hello to a few sisters,

OCTOBER my first Birchbox,

...'played' with some MAC,

...took you along with me on a hike,

...became a panda,


...started finding colors around the house,

...experimented with grays and purples,

...reconciled with an old friend,

...became caught up in college applications so I shared some art,


...finally bought a Korres lip butter,

...fell in love with churches,

...shared some more art,

Blogging has been so fun and it is such a great creative outlet for me, and all the while I'm documenting precious memories. Upon this reflection, I've realized what a great year it has been. Really, such a great year. 

There are so many ways to approach blogging. While I still haven't really found my "niche" yet, I am starting to see a style/trend in my posts. However, I'll never stop experimenting. (Also, I'm glad that I never made self-promotional comments!) My apologies for the long post. Back to regular scheduled programming in the next one! 

Happy Sunday! Now I want to ask you, what does blogging mean to you? Do you ever just take a few moments to look back through your archives?
