2011 Highlights

Hi Friends,

Happy New Year!!! How was your NYE? Mine was a great night of dancing and drinking out in Boston with some of my favorite people. Pictures were not taken but we had lots of laughs the whole night and memories were definitely made.

Yesterday as I got ready for NYE, I started thinking back over the past year. I wanted to look back through my posts from 2011 and I was really amazed at the changes that I have gone through in the past year. I honestly feel that I am such a different person than I was a year ago; this year has been filled with ups and downs but I’ve learned much about myself and my own personal strength. I’ve also to try to let go of feeling the need for control and to spend more time focusing on the positive parts of life. On that note, here are the highlights from 2011:

Birthday celebrations with my girl friends πŸ™‚

Mountain views at Sugarloaf in Maine

Views of Mount Washington from WildCat Mountain in New Hampshire
