Oh hi 2012.
2011 was an eventful year. It had its ups and downs and its bittersweet moments, but I would say it was generally a positive, fulfilling, and eventful year.
I met some great new people, but also had to wish bon voyage to some very special friends as they moved out of town.
I celebrated the marriages of some great friends, and welcomed some new bundles of joy into the world.
I expanded my crafty abilities and learned such things as how to sew, how to make homemade pickles, and how to etch glass.
I took a lot of pictures, but mostly for myself instead of for sale.
I bought in iPhone and discovered instagram.
I read two great books: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and Bossypants by Tina Fey. (I recommend both of them)
At the beginning of 2011, I resolved to do two things: schedule more time for myself, and make sure I start planning for the holidays early so I can enjoy the season instead of having to bustle around trying to get everything in order. I think I did a good job of keeping both of those resolutions. For 2012, I do have one creative resolution that I'm pretty excited about, but I'm going to hold off on sharing it for a bit until I am sure I can commit to it!
Happy New Year to everyone!
