2011 Revisited

While everyone else out there in media-land is doing year end countdowns, recaps, reviews, and best-of lists, I thought I’d try that myself. So, what happened this year? I can’t remember off the top of my head, so it’s a good thing I’ve got Flickr to help jog my memory. I’ve gone through all my photos for the year and selected one or two of the most meaningful for each month (so, lots of pictures to follow). How was your year?

    1. You could still do it.. it’s more of a flickr-ish thing. But it’s your blog and your choice. ;P Someday you’ll have a wool room of your own. For a long time all my stuff was jammed into bookshelves in my parents’ living room. And then it lived in the basement at our first apartment. Of course, “my wool room” is really just a giant closet and everything that we don’t want out when family comes over gets shoved in there. Hence the renewed mess…
