2011 Blog in Review

Every year I say this, but it’s so true – where did the year go?  It feels like it was just yesterday that I wrote my 2010 Blog in Review and about a month since I wrote my 2009 Blog in Review.  How is it possible that I’m sitting down to write my 2011 Blog in Review?  Just blows my mind!


In January, Jack professed his love for me in a silly iPhone video!

In March, I got super sick and was in/out of the ER and doctor.  While it wasn’t a “favorite” time of the year it clearly was memorable!  If you want to read part 2 and part 3 of my awful March click HERE and HERE.

In April, I bought myself a Nikon D5000 DSLR camera!  I’ve had a great time learning how to use my new camera!  For Christmas my parents got me an online photography class!  Cannot wait to start!

In November, I was diagnosed with PTSD after after months of panic attacks, which resulted from a scary experience of ‘losing’ a child during the summer.
