so long, farewell 2011

So 2011 is coming to a close & frankly, I can’t say I am going to miss it.

I have to admit it had its moments worth remembering.  Still feels like there were more that I would rather forget.  Said good-bye to a job, my passport & my dear sweet Badyn, Bongo & Bijou.

2011 easily could have been MUCH worse & at times I thought it was going to be.  For that I thank it.  Still… don’t let the door hitcha!  With just a few hours left, I don’t mind reminiscing a little. Especially since I have already watched the final sunset of the night.  No turning back now!

So the final blog of 2011 is here.  I give you a photo from each month that makes me smile and a link back to one post per month.

Starting at the beginning…

JANUARY

Dreamed of a new place to dream

FEBRUARY

Thankfully I got to spend time with my mom’s brother & sisters all in one place – without a funeral or wedding!

I left my previous job in a leap of faith.

MARCH

Went to my first LIVE hockey game (Charlotte Checkers) & had a blast

and I was totally torn on what to do with my life work wise.

APRIL

relaxed & enjoyed my time off as much as I could

Continued with the changes in my life.

MAY

Started the month with a new job & even a side job cater waiting! Filling a few new shoes. Began my love affair with PostCrossing!

JUNE

Got used to life getting back to normal.  Debated cutting a few wishes loose once & for all, but most just have been put on the back burner.

JULY

enjoyed life & wrote a post that seems very popular – although I doubt that those who click to it find quite what they were hoping for!

AUGUST

funny enough, I am enjoying life with two jobs! especially with sites like these

recovered from a crazy storm

SEPTEMBER

traveled with my Dad to the mountains & found this amazing spot to fall for

rolled over another year age wise & said good-bye to my first bird.  My dear Bongo.

OCTOBER

got surprised with KILLER seats to the Panthers game!

Barris became the youngest lil budgie to ever enter my life!

NOVEMBER

Seemed I had so much to be thankful for & yet evidently the new romance was not one after all.

DECEMBER

Won breakfast for the entire office! Free Chick-fil-a just days before the second annual Nugget Fest!  Which was a high note I needed.  Also said good-bye to Bijou followed by Badyn.

So maybe 2011, wasn’t all that bad.  There was luck, love & laughter mixed in with the good-byes, anxiety & set backs.

Now to start my nice quite dinner at home with the parrots & pug.  Thankfully I don’t have to share my bottle of bubbly with ANYONE or even have to wait til midnight.  Tomorrow begins new dreams, projects & stories to live.

CHEERS!

Hoping tonight keeps everyone safe, sane & happy.

Good-bye 2011, you weren’t as crazy as 2010, but I hope that 2012 kicks both your asses! ha ha.  Maybe it will bring that fortune cookie’s message come true!
