Winter Break 2012 Picture Highlights: Dec 27 to Jan 10

This year’s winter break is my last winter break as a college undergrad, so I was determined to make it a fun and memorable one.

My rules: (1) Don’t plan too many things out in advance (2) When a fun opp comes up, go for it (3) Driving distance isn’t a limiting factor (4) Have fun!

Picture recap from 12/27 to 1/10, because I’m terrible at remembering past events, so this will hopefully help me improve on that aspect!
