a year in review - 2011

I've been thinking about the events of the past year and concluded that it was a quiet year. I didn't move, I never left the country, didn't visit any new states, there were no grand road trips, or exotic vacations, there were no graduations, marriages or funerals. It was a quiet year for me, but a good one. Here are some of the highlights:

Channeled my inner Elle Woods and discovered the glory of a good manicure

Read at least 8 books
Did not move - for the first time since 2005 I spent a whole year in the same state

Discovered zombie movies - how had I missed these?

Started a vegetable garden and already planning next years

Became an aunt

Was admitted into the DC bar

Stopped wearing glasses - turns out I never really needed them

Knitted, danced, sang, blogged

And while it wasn't monumental, it was a really good year. It was the year that I started to feel like a grown-up. I put down roots, I worked hard, I supported myself and I enjoyed life. Here's to adventures great and small in the 2012!


  1. Sounds like a year to truly take pride in.

    Did you discover 28 Days Later? My favorite zombie movie.

  2. Yep, it all started with "28 days later"
