2012: A visual retrospective on this awesome year

As I looked back on the previous year, I realized: "DAMN! A lot has happened". Not only I believe I've grown TREMENDOUSLY (I believe this past year was one of my most significative years in terms of personal growth), but I also met amazing people, ate great food and traveled to cool places. Here are a few highlights from this past year in Sassou's life :)

Oh and before you look at the pics, you can click here to see my 12 positive things about 2012! I would also like to point out that I am writing this post from Miami and although I love my city, I wouldn't mind staying a few more....years. Lol.  Bye! Happy new year!
