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!!!!
Highlights from last January were most definitely my press trip to CAbi Scoop and my 3rd Blissdom Conference.
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!
