A year in review: 2011 was an effing rollercoaster, y’all.

Lots of ups and downs this year, but overall a very enjoyable ride. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.


I started the 30-Day Letter Project. I was lonely. I was not looking forward to 2011. I started the Joy Equation.


I didn’t blog much, but I explained why I stand with Planned Parenthood and tried to focus on the little things.


I struggled with the idea of turning 25. I listened to my gut (thankgod). P turned 28.


I signed up for Bloggers in Sin City. I talked about getting married and having babies, which is funny because we also found out I was pregnant in April. I shared my love for my little town.


I announced my pregnancy and then P and I got engaged. I missed writing. I started planning our wedding and fell in love with bloggers in Vegas.


I missed my dad on Father’s Day and struggled with body image during my pregnancy.


I celebrated Independence Day. I got stressed about the wedding but then we got married so the stress wasn’t really worth it.


I turned 25, shared a bunch of wedding photos and appreciated the path that led me to where I am today.


I started to freak out a little about E’s arrival.


I worked on the nursery, had two baby showers, and admitted that I suck at dealing with anger and picking my battles.


I frantically tried to get everything ready at work for my sub during my maternity leave. Callie had puppies. I missed my family on Thanksgiving. I became a mother.


I still haven’t finished the 30-Day Letter Project. I struggled (and continue to struggle) with all things postpartum. I missed my family at Christmas-time. Baby E turned a month old (post coming soon!). I set a big goal for 2012.
