Goodbye, 2011

2011 has been quite a year for us. This year I experienced one of the happiest days in my life quickly followed by one of the absolute worst.  But, I am so fortunate to have a wonderful husband who is with me through the good, bad and the ugly and a family who loves and supports us through it all.  We also have been blessed with so many wonderful friends.  This is a year I'm ready to let go and welcome in 2012 with open arms.  

But, here are some of my favorite moments of 2011:

We rang in 2011 with some of our closest friends.
My parents rented a house in Florida for the first three months of the year and Fred, Knox and I were able to visit them twice.
In visiting my parents, I was able to visit with some of my closest friends from college. 
In February, Fred and I attended Oscar Night America benefiting the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis.
In April, we celebrated our 3rd Anniversary in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
In June, I attended the 160th Alpha Delta Pi Grand Convention in Phoenix, Arizona.
 In August, our Memphis ADPi Alumnae Association hosted our 23rd Annual Ronald McDonald House Benefit Golf Tournament in which we raised $30,000 for the RMH of Memphis!
 In September, Fred and I took a long weekend trip to Chicago.  So much fun!
 And Knox got 3rd place in the Running of the Weenies
 In October, I helped set up the Junior League of Memphis' Merry Marketplace and Fred came to our gala.
 Fred turned 30 on November 5.
We celebrated my 29th birthday with a trip to Italy! 
We celebrated another wonderful Christmas with our dear friends and family.
Here's to a happy and blessed 2012.  So, what were some of your 2011 highlights?
