FMT’s Ode to 2012

2012 saw the addition of a new friend, the amazing Mimosa. With her, we have become a stronger, better group of friends.  We laugh more, we explore more and we drink a little more wine.  While I hate the road that lead you to us, I am sure glad you’re up for the ride.

2012 brought us new jobs, new positions and new career opportunities. Give us another 5 years and we may become adults(…maybe).

2012 inspired us to inspire each other.

2012 brought new additions to our families, the Puppies.  Not only do they bring laughter to our days but remind us how important it is to be needed and to need in return.



2012 introduced us to these guys and this song .

2012 gave us break ups and break downs.  It showed us that we are much stronger then we ever thought and together we can pick each other up, re arrange the broken pieces and create new and better versions of ourselves.  It taught us not only the strength that exists within us but the power of true friends.

2012 steam plowed PICKLE BACKS into our lives.  And what a lovely lovely affair its been.

2012 showed Korbel that she is capable of taking unsteady ground and making it firm.   That she can do for others what wasn’t able to be done for her and provide a solid home filled with love and warmth to the one person she loves more then anything, her brother.  2012 showed us Korbel’s unyielding kindness and generosity.

2012 taught Poinsettia to never give up hope. When one door closes another one opens and while it may be easier to hold on to what could have been, there is always be more joy in what will be.   2012 taught us that Poinsettia can get knocked down, rise up and stand just a little taller then before she fell.

2012 taught Mimosa that she can’t help everyone all of the time and that every now and again she needs to let the ones she loves stumble a bit – even if it’s a pretty scary thing to do. 2012 reminded Mimosa that age is really just a number and when you’ve got friends like these it SO doesn’t matter.

2012 showed Bellini that all you have to do is look up to discover a whole new dream and no matter your age or place in life something wonderful is waiting to be discovered.  2012 taught Bellini that the foundations of life are based on good food, good wine and good company.  

2012 introduced YOU to the amusing world of FMT.  We opened a window to our lives to share our thoughts, our experiences and dreams.  Thank you for traveling around DC and discovering hilarity with Poinsettia and Mimosa, for looking up at the night sky and dreaming big with Bellini and for sparkling and learning kindness with Korbel.  We can’t wait to share 2013 with you!
