Man I remember 2012 like it was yesterday. Ha! There were many ups and downs associated with last year. It was truly the definition of a roller coaster ride. But through it all God was faithful. Know that everything happens for a reason and that God has your best interest at heart. 2012 had some great moments, which involved meeting awesome people, attending events, traveling, modeling and more. I am excited to share with you some of my highlights of 2012. It took me forever to sort through all my photos. Ha!
I meet every week with a wonderful group of women that challenge me spiritually. I was hesitant to join this bible study group, an extended arm of Heartland Church, at first because it was new to me. I look forward to digging in the Word deeper with them, and spending time more with them. Truly a blessing!
A new addition was added to my family this year—Champ. My little Shih Tzu! He’s the cutest puppy in the world and lights up my day.
I’ve also covered fashion shows this year. One of my favorites was the Maurice’s Runways and Rescues Fashion Show. It was so fun meeting all the women, vendors and local talent.
Getting featured on the front page is a big deal. It was pretty cool to see my story grace the front page of the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper.
This year I celebrated two wonderful years with Erik Handwork. He’s my biggest supporter and an amazing man.
I joined a new church this year, which I absolutely love, Heartland Church. This summer I attended camp with our youth group and it was life changing. I connected with a great group of girls and team leaders. I look forward to the next trip.
Seeing my little sister, Alexis, graduate was great. I am so proud of her and all she will accomplish in the future.
Indy got to host the Superbowl last year. The city was beaming with pride. Loved it!
This year I was able to travel out of the country for the first time. I took a cruise to the Bahamas. It was everything I imagined and more. It was a dream come true.
On New Year’s Eve I was able to go to an Indiana Pacers game. We won! Yay! Erik joined me.
I just love Christmas! I had a wonderful time with family and friends.
AK’s World reached over 25,000 visitors last month, way over my goal. I am overwhelmed by it’s progress. Thanks for all the support. Great things are in store for this year.
