This is the first time I’ve ever done this. Hah! It was a challenge to try to summarize an entire year in just a bunch of photos but I think I got it right. Lots of challenges but lots of fun too.

Working in the tourism industry, you eventually accept that you’ll never be able to spend the holidays with your family and friends and learn to make the best of it by celebrating with your co-workers and guests. From a certain point of view, your co-workers and guests become your “family” of sorts.
Some photos from our New Year’s celebration on the island. May you all have an exciting and meaningful 2012 🙂
