2011 the year in review
Hello blog readers! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season and I wish you a
happy and healthy New Year.
As always, I take this time to assemble a year in review mosaic. I love looking back at my previous years in review. My blog serves as my memory as I get older!
You will notice a lot of the photos are of familiar faces and places and I seem to gravitate to the same favorite locations year after year. My friends will of course always be my friends, they are really more like family to me.
I visited Nubble Light in Maine and Rockport in Massachusetts again this year. I held a Christmas Soiree and a Harvest Dinner again. I reconnected with some high school classmates at my reunion this year and we are going to continue to keep in touch (a gathering is already scheduled). We had a lovely time this Summer at a wedding on the ocean. Nothing relaxes me like being at the ocean. I attended the Bedford Polecapping for the first time (my sister was a participant). Coffee continues to be my drug of choice and I love meeting my friends for a cup of joe and some good conversation. My sister and I put our hearts and souls into rescuing little Miss Marble, our hearts were in the right place yet it ended tragically. It still brings tears to my eyes to think about her but I do believe her best interests were always foremost in our thoughts. And I know she is playing and having a grand time in heaven. Percy grew up right before my eyes and he is settling in a little better with his brother and sister. In 2011, I thought the snow would never stop falling. Still, I love the sight of freshly fallen snow. When the weather turned nice, I attended my first Red Sox game in ages and an Octoberfest and had my first but hopefully not my last blogger meetup.
Phew, I guess it was a full year after all. So I am ready for 2012, my only resolution is to let it be and not sweat the small stuff. I stress entirely too much and I don't want to waste a single minute of my life on unnecessary worry. Most of it is out of my control anyway.
