2011: A Year in Pictures

2011 has been a year so crammed with incredible experiences that I feel quite at a loss to put it into words.

And a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Below are just a few of my favorite pictures from this year.  Some I’ve posted here before; quite a few will be new to you.

I think all I really want to say about 2011 is how incredibly grateful I am for it.  For the crazy decision to quit my job and follow my heart though I still don’t know how it will all work out.  I am a lucky girl.  To have experienced all I have, to have met some beautiful people, and mostly  – definitely mostly –  to have my husband by my side; the most inherently kind, dedicated and goofy man I know. 

May you all have a happy new year!!!!  And may 2012 bring us all more hope and joy…
