Goodbye 2011

Closing the door on 2011 feels pretty good, personally. It wasn't an easy year for us, so knowing that when we wake up tomorrow we will be waking up in a new year feels AMAZING. But being the ever-optimistic person that I am, I find it fairly easy to look back through the year and see all the amazing things that went on in our lives.

Here are just a few of the highlights:

We saw a LOT of live music. To name them all would be tough.

I became a founding member of the Denton Women's Collective.

I donated my hair to Locks of Love for the second time.

My brother turned 25.

The Rangers went to the World Series for the second time.

My cousin got married in August.

One of my best friends, Kim, got married in November.

Ryan & I celebrated 3 years of marriage. I made a little slide show to celebrate our time together (since 2002) and realized I never posted it anywhere! Ryan & I watched it together on our anniversary, and even though its been almost two months, I am going to share it here anyway. It is nothing compared to what my immensely talented friend, Lindsay, can do, but it was so fun and emotional for me to do it myself.

So, 2011, I happily bid you adieu as I look on towards 2012 feeling hopeful. Happy New Year to you all!


  1. Wow this choked me up, Rach. That video was so heart warming. Thank you for sharing. Also thank you for the props, but I think the "take away" feeling is what makes these mini-videos great, and the feeling I have right now is definitely a good one. Happy New Year! Love you.

  2. Oh Lindsay. Once again, your words have left me all warm and fuzzy inside. Happy New Year indeed. Love YOU!

  3. Awwwwwww, that video was so SWEEEET!!!

    My heart is all melty!!
