2011 was quite possibly the best year of my life. i wasn’t sure that i was really ready to let go of it – i married an amazing man, gained a second family & made some truly unforgettable memories with friends. i can’t complain much about what happened to me this year. even though not everything went my way (& I’m sure i bitched and complained much to much) i am so incredibly lucky. i had so many people in my life this year that went out of their way to make me happy. from parents & siblings to friends & bridesmaids and my hubby. people paused their busy lives to make me smile. there were showers, and parties and bachelorettes and weddings & everything in between and you really just don’t process it all until afterward and then you think… wow, how did i ever complain for one second? how did i not just realize i was surrounded by so much love? so to everyone out there who was there for me, and for us this past year… THANK YOU. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t express it enough & if i ever made you feel like i didn’t appreciate every second you spent… i am sorry. i wouldn’t be anything or anywhere without all of you.
So as i reflect back on this year, i feel overwhelming gratitude. i can now safely say i’m ready to leave 2011 behind and be optimistic about 2012. Brian told me that things will only get better. So here’s to 2012. Here’s to things only getting better. & here’s to love, laughter & happily ever after!
