Hey gang, how is everyone? Fantastic, I hope.
So the world didn’t end, BUT the year does come to an end today! Can you believe you it? It has definitely been an amazing year and I am beyond thankful. Anyhoo, enough of that – with the end of the year less than a day away, I wanted to share my list of couples who kept us buzzing in 2012! After careful consideration and research – and by this I mean 20 mins of browsing the internet to make sure the couples I picked were in fact still together (just shows you how totally ‘with it’ I am) – I finalized my list. We definitely had a little bit of everything this year, so let’s get started.
I’ll kick things off with…
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez
These adorable kids took us on a bit of a roller coaster ride with their on again/off again love affair, but in the end, all the drama seems to have been worth it. The young lovebirds are back together… for now.
Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka make the perfect couple! Their relationship seems so genuine and seriously, could their kids be any cuter?
Michelle and Barack Obama’s lives are about as public as you can get. The two were married in 1992 and have two daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. It’s no secret that we have fallen in love with the first couple. The Obamas provide an image of a powerful and positive couple in love.
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
Kim and Kanye became an item in April and as strange as it seems, these two might just be a match made in heaven. From what I’ve read, he gave her a little makeover and she got him to lighten up and you know, smile…so, it totally works! Plus, Kim’s pregnant. Looks like we’ll be welcoming mini ‘Kimye’ in 2013!
Taylor Swift & Conor Kennedy… or is it Harry Styles?
Taylor, Taylor, Taylor - Taylor Swift recently added to her list of splits after a brief romance with 18-year-old Conor K. earlier this year. Swift has since moved on to British boy band member Harry Styles, who is also 18… cougar? I think so! Harry and Taylor seem to be going strong but if or when it ends, rest assure we’ll hear all about it on her next album.
Beyoncé & Jay-Z
Dubbed “Music’s Ultimate Power Couple”, Jay-Z and Beyoncé are solid! Since the birth of their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, the couple has been spending a little less time in the spotlight but our obsession with the power couple has only increased since they became a family unit. Thank you, Bey and Jay, for sharing your joy about being parents with the rest of us. Yay!
Rob Pattinson & Kristen Stewart
There was much controversy surrounding this sexy twosome when Kristen confessed to cheating on Rob with some old married guy. Ahh, young love – the couple called it quits then later reunited. I actually really like these two together, so let’s hope it works out.
Mary Kate Olsen & Creepy Old Guy
Mary Kate Olsen is dating 42-year-old Oliver Sarkozy. There has been so much ‘noise’ surrounding this couple but MK isn’t at all affected. “Everyone has an opinion” she says. I’m going to ignore the fact that she looks like she’s being held hostage in this photograph and wish the couple all the very best!
Love comes in all shapes and forms. Love is everything.
There you have it ladies and gents. Who is your favorite couple of 2012?
