I started this blog in 2008. And this year, something clicked. I got comfortable with my own voice and sharing more stories about my life and you reciprocated by showing up, adding to the conversation and sticking around. Today's post is embedded with links, so follow your whimsy. Pretend you're eating popcorn with your feet propped up on the coffee table and watching one of those cool year ender videos on the nightly news. It adds to the effect.

said goodbye to the first house my boys, husband and I shared as a family.

Eventually we bid farewell to lazy days and I sent Dillon off to kindergarten.

Overall, we spent 2011 goofing off, reflecting on what really matters and recognizing we need to just keep swimming.  Thanks to you, this little slice of cyberspace felt a lot like home.

It's the end of the road for us, my friend

Santa, that's my only wish this year
