    What was your best moment of 2012?

    Jumping In


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Jenna Adams captured this quintessential summer’s day photo at an annual youth group retreat at Lake Arietta in Auburndale, Florida.

    “It had been raining all day, and finally in the evening it stopped so everyone decided to go out on the lake for a couple of hours and I happened to capture this photo of one of the students jumping off the dock,” said 19-year-old Jenna, who is currently at college in Birmingham, Alabama.

    “This moment in particular may not be the most memorable, but the emotions that it stirs up within me remind me of all the moments that were memorable in 2012. All my memorable moments all involve carefree and joyful moments such as this one captured in my photo,” she added.

    This summer, the leadership team of my youth group had a retreat at a lake house. In this photo, Nathan, one of the students, is jumping off of the boating dock at sunset. This photo is important to me because it represents the joy that I have during summer time. To me, summer is almost better than Christmas.
