A Year In Review.

2011- Oh what a year you have been. 

Thank you for the laughter that was shared and the memories that I now cherish, for expanding both my mind and my horizons, for challenging me with change while simultaneously blessing me with new beginnings, and for the health and happiness with which I have now entered 2012. While the first half of this past year was spent relishing those last bittersweet moments of life in the semi-real world, the latter half was most certainly spent working to embrace this new chapter of independence and adventure-- a chapter which I know at some point will, in its own way, be just as sweet. This past year managed to both thrill and terrify me beyond measure and for that humbling experience I will for be forever grateful.

While there are an absolute immeasurable number of memories from this year that served to make 2011 truly wonderful, here is a quick glimpse & a wide range of the people, places and moments that I will always remember--


From Charlottesville to Anchorage, Brooklyn to St. Louis, San Francisco to San Jaun, and every pit stop & road block along the way, thank you for playing your pivotal role in ensuring 2011 will forever remain near and dear to my heart.
