2011 recap & 2012 aspirations

After seeing others posts, I take it I am not the only one who thinks 2011 absolutely flew by? Seriously, it doesn't seem like one year ago today that I posted this, listing off my 2011 wishes. Time flies.

2011 had its ups and downs, good times and bad times, happy times and sad times, stressful times and calm times. But hey -  that is how life goes and that is how life will always be.

In 2011...

I rode in a jet for the first time to Disney World, participated in a mock trial, witnessed the world not ending, had an epic giveaway, finally purchased my Nikon D3000, adopted a Winter White hamster, concluded that I am a mixture of Southerner and Northerner, became a freshman in high-school, attended my great-grandmother's one-hundredth birthday party, had an engagement photo shoot with Jeremy & Jenny, passed the driver's ed written course, enjoyed Christmas Eve with my MeeMaw and Christmas day with my grandparents and now I will just have to wait eleven and a half hours for 2012 to give new highlights, memories, and loveliness.

Basically I really only have one main aspiration for 2012:

Expand on photography. Experiment with and purchase lenses, learn tips and tricks with my camera, have more professional looking photos. In a nutshell, I would love to become a better photographer.

I really cannot believe this is actually my last post for 2011. Wow. Just wow. However, I cannot wait to see what is in store for this upcoming year. So many memories waiting to be made.

What are your aspirations for 2012?


  1. It looks like you had an amazing 2011! I hope 2012 brings you happiness and lots more adventures! :D
