A Look Back


One great thing about having a blog is the chance to document life throughout the year. It's like an ongoing scrapbook, which is the best kind for me because I do not possess a creative bone in my entire body. I have no doubt that my husband wonders why in the world I insist on taking so many pictures of everything...this is why! I like to look back and visual recaps are the best.

started the year off by celebrating a Tar Heels win!

got a ton of snow and enjoyed some snow days!
we bought some new furniture and I finally felt like an adult
Valentines day
celebrated my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary

went to visit my sweet great grandpa for his 93rd birthday
celebrated Resurrection Sunday
2 wonderful friends said "I do"

celebrated Brittany's birthday in Boone!

3 year anniversary trip to Chicago
can never get enough visits with him :)
celebrated America's birthday with some fun people!
and sparklers of course
found out I was going to be an aunt!
another sweet friend got married
I bought a guitar
another set of "I do's" were said
first ever blog date with Brooke
saw Dave Barnes in concert and was NOT disappointed
started off the month with some of the best friends I have ever known
went to the Carolina vs. Louisville football game

stayed at the Christmas Inn for my birthday!
and roasted some marshmallows while we were there
saw Taylor Swift in concert and loved every minute
ran a 5K on Thanksgiving morning
my best friend said yes

I helped throw my sister-in-law a baby shower
went to the Carolina/App State basketball game
Christmas was a month long celebration of course

Though to some it may not seem as though 2011 held excitement or may even seem boring.

I assure you, it was not. We had a wonderful year and I'm so excited for the many things 2012 will hold for us!

Happy New Year everyone! Make the most of it :)
