my year in review..........

This time last year, I discovered the wonderful world of blogging. Little did I know, when I was awkwardly designing my own blog, how much I would love this new found place! I started this blog with thoughts of doing it as a cooking blog, but I soon realized that what I really wanted was a place to keep my pictures, stories, ideas, goals, and dreams....pretty much a place to "journal" about all the things going on in my ho-hum-everyday life. When I started this whole blogging adventure, I never thought anyone would actually read my blog, much less "follow" it. As of today, I have 71 followers!!! I look forward to posting, whether it be a craft project I'm working on or a milestone in our family. I love reading other blogs as well. I follow lots of blogs, some of the bloggers I know, but most I have never met. I made 288 posts in 2011 and look forward posting even more this year.
Here are some highlights from 2011:
