I wasn’t going to do this post. Everyone has seemingly done one and at the risk of jumping on the Year in Review Blog Post bandwagon, I am doing it anyway.
Reading so many Best Of posts caused me to reflect back on some of my 2011 Highlights:
Travel + Photography Workshops
Intentions & Goals, i.e. Resolutions, and Reflections
7 Links Post including most controversial posts, posts with surprising success, posts that didn’t see enough of the light of day, and more
Told we had to move within 30 days
Moved into a new place two weeks later
My 10 Year Anniversary with Scott
Just being a Mom. Motherhood is my Best Of, period.
Non-food posts I am proud of
Compiling a FAQ Page which is a master list with answers to frequently asked questions that I receive. I also included sections on travel, photography, food questions, and more.
Two Recipes with surprising success
It’s interesting to me what like and gravitate toward, and what becomes a hit. Don’t get me wrong, although these two recipes are good, I like the following better…
This is hard because I made so many but if I use the “first thing that comes to mind” strategy and think about what I just loved and missed when that dessert was done and gone ( I rarely make something twice when there’s so many new things to try), but the following are what popped into my mind: Two cookie recipes, one brownie recipe, two bars.
When it comes right down to it, simple is good. And so is peanut butter, chocolate, and white chocolate. If nothing else, I am consistent with the flavors and textures I like.
1. What are your highlights from 2011? Personal, work, family, relationship, blogging, food? What comes to mind?
2. Are you setting New Years Resolutions, intentions or goals?
Of course there are small things I am mindful of and would like to work more on, but overall, I’m not setting any huge new goals.
I tend to do that for myself throughout the year but nothing huge comes to mind now so I’ll take that as my cue to keep on, keepin’ on.. status quo.
If you are a resolution setter, I’d love to hear what’s on your mind and your list.
Happy New Year! If you’re celebrating tonight, please be safe!
