Yes, I will post some Jamaica pictures soon. We had a wonderful time but are glad to be home. I miss the heat and the fact that I have people serving me day and night but oh well, back to reality.
I decided to do a post on 2011 and the highlights and lowlights. 2011 was actually quite boring. We traveled a lot but mainly it was low key. It was also a bad year because we lost a family member.
January 2011 started out with us being snowbound. I have lived in places where it snows for about 6 years now and I still cannot stand it. It is so pretty but such a pain to drive in. I keep hoping that we end up back in Florida. Believe it or not, I would take hurricanes over snow any day. Someone also went into the river in front of our house. Luckily, no one died.
February was uneventful. I turned 47! I am getting old. And we took a trip down to Ocean Isle Inn in Ocean Isle, NC. Luckily, Tom came with me and it was a lot of fun.
In March, I had to fly to Costa Rica on family business. It was so nice to see my family because they are so far away. Also, Spring started springing and I was so excited.
In April, I was invited to go to Miami as one of the Telemundo Digital Influencers. It was a blast and I got to see my good friend, Migdalia. Plus, I was back in my old stomping grounds, Miami!
May was the month we started our garden once again. And we were able to go back to Jamaica. We had such a wonderful time there and we were so ready for a vacation!
I got back from vacation and went into overdrive at work because we had a huge event in June. It was a success and it was fun. I even got to dress as a fairy. And our garden started coming in. We really had some mutant veggies this year.
July was crazy as well because I started planning for another event in San Diego for the BlogHer conference. In the meantime, our garden was growing and we were harvesting tons of veggies!
August was the suckiest month ever. It started okay with me going to the BlogHer conference but all the while I knew that we were heading toward a bad ending because our little baby, Shawn, was sick and we knew a decision had to be made. We made that decision and it was heartbreaking and devastating. She was with us for 15 years and she was my little girl.
September was boring with very little going on but Fall was beginning and that was a good thing. I finally hit 500 posts on my blog and wrote a post with my all time favorite posts. This is a good read. September was cool because I got to go see Rick Springfield in concert. I love me some Rick Springfield.
October I wished my little "brother" a happy birthday and focused on his new business. I am a proud sister because he is so talented. We also headed to South Carolina. And I posted Fall pictures and more Fall pictures.
In November, we headed off to Orlando and I got to visit Hogwarts! WOO! We also visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. November also brought shocking news about someone I knew when I lived in State College. Jerry Sandusky was arrested for molesting young boys. I worked at the Second Mile years ago and knew him. Weird and creepy.
December took us to Cleveland for my mother in law's surprise party. December also took us back to Jamaica. At least we didn't have snow the end of the year and that is a good thing.
Happy 2012 - hope it is wonderful year!
