Man, it is amazing how much a year can do for you! Seriously! This ride with the blog has been a beautiful one for me, and for that I am grateful! If you are a new reader or have been reading for a minute, I just wanted to take a moment and reflect on all that has happened in 2011!
If we don’t know where we came from, we won’t know where we are going yes?? So, on that note, I wanted to take a quick moment to just share a few highlights for me and the blog! A little different from the Top Ten Posts of 2011, this is my reflection on all the things accomplished this year- giving me the motivation to bring you more oomph and panache in the next!
