As I sit here, early in the morning on a snowy New Year's Eve, I cannot help but think what an amazing year it has been! It has been a year filled with new friendships and losses of those we hold dear, of happy afternoons on the lake and quiet moments in the woods. I've created meals with friends and artwork with my son. I've hunted with my family and continued my knife sharpening skills at work (that's right!) I've giggled over silly stories and wept over emails. I've grown, I've learned, I have shared and I have loved.
What an amazing year it has been! It has been good. It has been challenging. It has flown by. And it is over! Goodbye 2011. You have been swell, but there's a new year approaching and I hear it's going to be bigger and better then you were!
