Looking Back

As the last few days of 2011 are winding down I find myself looking back on the major happenings, lessons, and memories of the year.  2011 was a year filled with ups and downs, lots of celebrating, good friends, and family.  While I like to think that I have grown up a lot this year, I still feel like there is a lot to learn.  This being said though I am excited for the new adventures that 2012 has in store for me!  A lot can happen in a year, just take a look!

Here are some of the biggest and most memorable moments from 2011!

We rang in 2011 in style!
Mark and I celebrated a wonderful year of dating!

I started this little blog!
I can safely say that I have enjoyed watching my blog grow, And I can not thank each one of you enough for the support you give me and my blog.  I am so thankful for each one of you that read and comment on my blog daily!  You all really do make my day with your sweet comments and words of encouragement!  So thank you!

I traveled to the beautiful country of Jamaica to participate in my 5th Mission Trip with the Butler Intercollegiate YMCA!  So thankful for this opportunity!

I fell in love with running!  And have been running and running and running ever since! 

I got to celebrate with many friends as they graduated from Pharmacy school!
I packed up my life in Indianapolis and moved back home to Minnesota. Not one of the easiest decisions I made, nor one of the easiest moves. However I learned a lot from this experiences, and believe it was the right decision.
I stood along side my best friend and watched her marry the man of her dreams!  It was such an honor to stand up there with the both of them!
Lets see what else did 2011 bring about... well 
I toured the foundation house,
and went to the lake not once but twice!
Celebrated birthdays, and anniversaries

and attended more weddings!
Reconnected with Good Friends
and last but not least just simply enjoyed life!
Hard to believe another year is gone!  So as I sit and ponder my New Years resolutions I am going to give thanks as well.  For the lessons, memories and experiences I was given in 2011!
