Wow 2011 is over rover! What a year it has been for me! It has hands-down been one of the most roller-coaster years for me EVER. I have always figured I would keep my personal business to a minimum on this blog but really, who am I to think that I can actually follow through with that?! Even when I am posting about design stuff I always feel like I am talking to friends (or no one?) and I want to always keep that open and more personal vibe. So maybe you will start hearing a little more about my personal life in 2012, we’ll see.
I will sum this year up by just saying that personally I have learned a lot. Plans changed, life threw some curve balls, and I had to finally, FINALLY learn that I am not in control of a whole lot. It took a crazy ass journey through good pregnancies and lost pregnancies to make me finally stop worrying and just let things flow. So out of something really hard came a lesson that has in turn made my life a lot less stressful.
I also finally understand what all those celebrities mean when they say “you’re thirties are the best!” I get it now. It took me 32 years, 10 years post-college to finally figure out what I would like to do with my life. Now when someone asks me what I like to do in my spare time I will have an answer. It used to feel so lame saying “watching tv.”
I had my best birthday week ever, two solid weeks at the beach with family, I launched design POST 6 months ago, I completed a volunteer room make over, saw my boys turn 2 and 5, made my first ever eBay purchase (Frye boots!), celebrated 7 years with my hubby, and I have discovered a huge rabbit hole to fill my time called BLOGS and PINTEREST! It’s just been a great year!
To honor some of the blogs that have consumed waaay too much of my time this year I wanted to do a “Top 10” list of my favorites. Whether it was a DIY project, a great find, or just a funny post all of these people and blogs have made my little design world go round. Looking forward to what I can toss into the pot this year…
