Year in Review 2011

By | December 31, 2011

I recently saw a really cool blog post called “Year in Review” and I loved the way she did it, so I’m totally copying her. (Blog now removed) 🙂

(This post took an eternity to write/gather. Hopefully everything makes sense and is in the right place 🙂

my favorite moments of 2011:
Started off the year with a new addition, Daisy
