The year winds down and the holidays barrel towards us. It's usually a time of reflection...and eggnog. Man do I love eggnog. And WonderWife™ has started making her own... Oh sorry. Got distracted.
2011 was a year with incredible ups and downs. On the positive side, my family is flourishing like WW™'s summer garden. Professionally, it was a year filled with great challenges and personal rewards. I spent more time in airplanes and hotels this year than the last three or four combined. It was a crazy time with a tremendous amount going on, but we all got through it unscathed.
Somehow I carved out time for blogging (though not as much as I would have liked). And as we prepare to put this year to bed, I thought I'd list a handful of my favorite posts from the 12 months that made up 2011.
I spent a lot of time this year trying to feed the Bean's inner geek--not always successfully.
I spoke my mind in a post that garnered some attention.
I ended up living with some unlikely new roommates.
I continued my battle with the worst arts and craft ever.
And I exposed my kids to one of the most whimsical authors of my childhood.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
