Naughty New Year Blog Hop

Wel­come to the JustRomance.Me blog hop! If you aren’t on the tour bus, just click HERE to get on board. I hope you all had a won­der­ful Chanukah, Christ­mas, Kwan­zaa, Sol­stice, and/or any­thing else you hap­pen to cel­e­brate. Now we wel­come 2013 with open arms! I know I expect great things from the com­ing year. To recap 2012, I thought I’d share some of my favorite GOOD things that hap­pened in 2012, in no par­tic­u­lar order:

August, 2012. Gab­by Dou­glas, the 16 year old gym­nast who helped win USA Gold in wom­en’s gym­nas­tics. I was glued to my television.
Mars Rover. August 5, 2012. Ten years. $2.5‑billion. 5,000 peo­ple. from 37 states. What a thrill.
UN Goal Achieved! The goal of reduc­ing by half the num­ber of peo­ple with­out access to safe drink­ing water has been achieved well ahead of the 2015 target.
Novem­ber 6. After four states moved for­ward toward equal­i­ty, these two ladies got their offi­cial mar­riage license in WA. Congrats!!

Even from all the bad news in the world, the good sto­ries emerge. Like Mr. Rogers said…“look for the helpers”. I don’t think I’ve looked for­ward to a clean slate much more than I have this year. 2013 is going to be amaz­ing! Now, keep hop­ping along so you can win some great books and oth­er prizes to start the new year off right. I also have some free books to give away, just click HERE, and choose your favorite e‑tailer. Have a won­der­ful 2013 everyone.
