Inspired by the stunning annual New York Times Year in Pictures, I put together a few photos to close out the year. They remind me what a big deal 2012 was, and how many stories I have yet to tell.
(above) In late November, Eleanor Linehan traveled from Ireland to visit her family, good friends of ours. She taught me how to make a traditional Christmas pudding. Someday soon I hope to tell you about our morning together.

Warm wishes for a happy new year.
