The Royal Vault | 2012

Holy Moly, is it really 2013 already? Well, from what it says on the calendar it surely is. If that's the case then it's time to put the year 2012 in our Royal Vault and get prepared to document a whole new one. I'm so ready to see what this year brings us and on an even better note, it's the year that La Princesa turns one! SQUEE! So let's review before I start turning into goo at the thought of a first birthday party.

2012 || January
