While catching up a bit on some of my favorite blogs a few days ago, I read Elise Larson's 12 Photos (a Year in Review) post. She posted a single picture for each month in 2011. Such an awesome idea!
I know I'm a bit late, but I really wanted to do this too. I couldn't help but want to take just a few minutes to reflect on the momentous year that was 2011.
and I think taking this time to appreciate the moments of 2011 will help me to more fully celebrate 2012 (FAPOL baby).
Soooo, I'm of course going to cheat a bit. I decided I would do a Mere life pic(s) each month, and as a bonus, a Kai pic of each month (otherwise they would have all just been Kai pics), which I'll post as a part II. 🙂
The oscar mayer weinerville visited our work, so Shap and I had to make a few poses.
This is the picture I took of Viet at the restaurant the night we got engaged. Look at that face. I'm a lucky girl.
I couldn't help but include two pictures from March. These were taken at the same time at Bridget and Will's engagement party we hosted at our apartment.
Here's the first shot. Look how beautiful and presentable we look:
I LOVE this picture.
Bridget and Will's wedding–April 16, 2011:
Two words: Roller DERBY.

In July our friends through us an epicccc engagement party. This is my favorite shot from that night:
I went to Yosemite and went rock climbing for the first time! It was a blast.
Back in the beautiful Bama, we came hope to celebrate Kai's birthday. A shot on the open rode:
A shot of me and V at our friends Andrew and Janet's wedding in Carmel:
I took a walk in the Presidio for the first time with my friend Mary. We live in such a beautiful place and have such amazing friends. So many things to be thankful for:
I shot of us in Portland right before 2011 wrapped up.

Stay tuned for 12 months of Kai.
