2011 Year in Review

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Looking back on 2011 I can see it was a year of high's and low's, but a year of growing and figuring out where we want to go.  I am looking forward to 2012, we have a plan, we know what direction we want to go in, and we are ready to get there.  I am grateful for all we learned in 2011, grateful for all of the fun we were able to have, grateful for all of the time we got to spend with family and friends, and grateful for the many blessings in our lives.  Rob and I talked the other night about how much fun we have had this year, and how many fun opportunities we had.  So despite how challenging it was at times, we should think about how blessed we were to be able to have so many adventures together this year.

So here they all are, boy it was a busy year.  We are all excited to see what 2012 holds!!
