The Year of the Luz 2012

Quarter 1: My husband and I survive the world’s worst Date Night.
Quarter 2: The Today Show‘s “experts” get schooled by my kids about open adoption.
Quarter 3: Checkmating my children. WIN!
Quarter 4: almost exactly a year after I announce that I have a book deal, I finally have a cover to show for it.

  1. What a year you have had my friend! I vividly recall each of the quarterly posts you chose to highlight and commented on the one I somehow managed not to the first time around. I agree with Luna, I believe that 2013 is going to be an amazing year for you with your book coming out and all! I am so glad that I got to meet you in person at BlogHer`12 and spend quality time hanging out with you and other mutual blogging friends. Thank you for being a such a great friend, cheerleader and writing/blogging mentor. Cheers to you and the year to come!

  2. I first read the title as Year of the Lulz, which seemed unusual for you…but it fits, regardless!

    2012 was quite a year for you, wasn’t it? I can’t wait to see the summary of 2013, by Lori, Published Author!

  3. Gosh that book cover looks nice. What a way to cap off your year. Congrats to you! And yes, thank you for being a friend, cheerleader and mentor. I couldn’t have said it better.

    I don’t know about you, but I am pretty jazzed about 2013.

  4. I’m thrilled for all of your success last year! I had a fantastic year, and was able to take the negatives and turn them into positives. I’m surrounded by amazing family and friends and that’s so important.

What say you?
