I did this last year, and I had so much fun reading back through it that I decided to do it for 2011 — a little walk down memory lane, I guess you could say!
Jill just reminded me that I did a linky the last two years, so I’m adding one now. I love reading year-end recaps, and I will try to visit as many as I can. I hope you all visit each other too and spread the New Years Luv!
So . . . if you have a 2011 Recap Post, link up!!!!
February was the month of the new car.
I never did find rain boots, but I can’t resist posting this precious picture.
March is always a depressing month as far as I’m concerned, but thanks to Mel and her Delaware Beach Families blog, I enjoyed a lovely weekend getaway to Rehoboth Beach!
And of course it was baseball season.
And I got to meet one of my heros, Robyn O’Brien.
AND I attended the Getting Gorgeous event in NYC.
May, of course, is the month of Mother’s Day.
And Memorial Day.
June was a busy month!! During the month of June, my daughter had her first (and maybe only) ballet recital. She decided not to take dance again this year, and I have mixed blessings. Dance isn’t exactly a hobby I pictured any of my kids embracing. Still, she made an awfully cute little ballerina if I do say so myself.
She also graduated from preschool.
Also in June, our family visited Historic Philadelphia.
And I went to my very first Type A Mom Conference. It was also my first trip to Asheville. I fell in love with this town, and I’m so bummed Type A Mom (or, um, Type A Parent) is moving to Charlotte.
I also attended a press trip to Congress Hall with Cape May Resorts Group that pretty much tops all press trips forever and ever amen. I don’t BEGIN to know where to begin choosing pictures for this one!!
July is my birthday month. I turned 39 for the first time. (Expect many more 39th birthday announcements to come!) Our family took a weekend trip to the Hyatt Resort on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to celebrate. It was perfectly relaxing and wonderful. I even rode a whale.
AND I met my dear friend Stephanie for the first time, although it felt like I’ve known her forever.
Oh! And a half-birthday party for my middle one.
In September, I ate cow tongue.
It wouldn’t be October without the obligatory Halloween pictures, now, would it??
And let’s not forget SNOWTOBER!
And R turned SIX!
In November, my little boy turned 12.
And I ran my first 5K.
And I think that about does it! Believe it or not, that’s not nearly half the pictures I wanted to post, but this is my weak attempt at moderation. Ha!
