2011 – Some of My Favorite Things

2011 was another good year for me, but with 2010 consisting of a wedding, a trip to Europe and a club championship it was going to be tough for 2011 to seem extraordinary. While not as eventful as 2010, 2011 was marked with a move to a new house. Time will tell what 2012 will bring.
