2011: a year in review

I don’t know that I’ve shown you all our Christmas card this year, so here it is:

Christmas Card

{yes, I designed it, and I’m pretty happy with it too!}

2011 has really been an amazing year. Not only did I start my company, but I jumped in head first and already have clients lined up for 2012.

We, of course, adopted our child.

This blog grew into something really special; something truly charming.

I saw friends get engaged, four couples get married, and one reaffirm their vows. I don’t personally know anyone born this year, but I’m sure that will change in 2012…

I’ve lost friends, but I’ve developed my other friendships so much, and I feel so very thankful for those relationships now. I know that these people will be the “aunties and uncles” to my kids in the future, and that means the world to me.

My marriage has grown in more ways than I ever thought possible, and we are happier now than we’ve ever been before in our lives.

2012 has been one of the best years of my life, and I’m ready for 2012 to be even better!
