2011 in review

On the last page of my scrapbooks for the last few years I have listed the highlights from that year.  I’ll do the same at the end of this year’s scrapbook but since I’m also blogging now I’m going to write that list here as well.  I think it’s fun to look back at a quick overview of the year.

  • I started graduate school – masters in library media education (LME) through Western Kentucky University (WKU) online (January)
  • I created the Date of the Month Club for Michael which we did every month until we moved and then it just completely fell by the wayside – we may go back and just randomly do the other dates I had planned (February – August)
  • I turned 24 (February)
  • We visited Michael’s friend Doc in Chattanooga (April)
  • We went to Gatlinburg for our 2nd anniversary (May)
