New Year....Same Me?

So here it is again, another new year. I am usually bitten by the "new year's resolution bug," but for some reason this year's transition from 2011 to 2012 was a little anticlimactic and I am still feeling the way I did before the holidays.

The only thing I can say about 2011 is that it was a tough year for me, and in many ways I am glad to close that chapter. I lost my grandfather to cancer, I lost a house in a tornado, and had many set-backs in between. But...ever the optimist, I am trying to see the good things in life. So here is a Top 10 of sorts of GOOD things from 2011 (in no particular order):

  1. I started a new job as communications specialist in the Dean's Office for the College of Arts and Sciences at UA.
  2. We adopted our cat Penny, who is my very own fur baby bundle of lovey-ness.
  3. I went to the Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores and had a blast!
  4. I got to reconnect with my aunts and cousins at the beach - I've really missed them in my life.
  5. Got to enjoy an annual girls weekend with two of my favorite friends (Can't wait for the next one!)
  6. Moved into a bigger, nicer house that I have really enjoyed so far.
  7. Celebrated 9 years of being in a relationship with Jennings, and 4 years of marriage.
  8. I got to go to not one, but TWO Auburn football games - War Eagle!
  9. Completed my first ever 5k race.
  10. Moved up to the rank of green belt in karate
 Here's to hoping that 2012 holds more positives than negatives!
