January 10, 2012


I realize I am doing this a little bit late, but I have been wanting to do it for a while and have been lazy with the whole blogging thing and just haven't! I figure better late than never right? Besides, I have loved reading other people's years in review and found it very fun and entertaining to reflect back on my 2011 year. It was a good one and I just thought I would share a few of the highlights.
