looking back

I can't believe it's the end of 2011.  It has been a great year, but I predict 2012 will be even better!

I thought I'd take a moment to look back at my year and share a few highlights.

I didn't take as many trips as I had hoped, but did have a few memorable ones.

My favorite was my trip to Maui with my niece for her graduation gift.  We had the most amazing time!  Wish I was there right now.  I could really use some warmth and sunshine!

We miss you Four Seasons!  Dont' worry, I'll be back! 
My nephew would like this same trip when he graduates in 2 years.

I finally took my first trip to High Point Market.

And, even spent time in my own city.

I was also lucky enough to meet up with these bloggers in person this year...

My business has continued to grow and I have some exciting things coming in 2012! 
Can't wait to share them with you!


And, last but not least, a big THANK YOU to all of you who have supported my blog this year!  I am so grateful for each and every one of you who have taken the time to stop by my blog and say hello.  Your comments have made me smile, laugh so hard I've cried, and have inspired me beyond belief!  Who would have thought that this creative outlet called blogging would be so rewarding!

Happy, Happy New Year!
