Last year I participated in reverb (and may or may not have finished....), so this year I'm going to give it another try with WEverb11. Like last year, a prompt is given for each day in December and bloggers respond. To find out more, go here.
Day 1: Choose one word.
Encapsulate the year 2011 in one word. Explain why. Imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you?
I became a licensed engineer, X started school again and got into grad school. We somehow squeezed in a belated anniversary trip and our house feels more like a home now.
Day 2: Listen.
What song did you listen to in 2011 to completely change your mood? Think about ways you can you add more music to your life in 2012.
I wouldn't say it was one song. I listened to a lot of classical and opera music to get into "study mode" when I was studying for my exam. I also discovered Florence & the Machine, which puts me in the best mood.
Day 3: Learn
What lesson did you learn in 2011 from “The School of Life” rather than a classroom?
You can't afford to stress over every little thing.
Day 4: Haiku
Sum up your year, via haiku.
One more year long gone
Working hard to live our dreams
Loved every second
Day 5: Befriend
Did you meet any new friends this year? How did they impact your 2011?
Most of the new friends I've met have been online through twitter and Weddingbee. Some people may not consider these "real" friends, but I look forward to hearing bits and pieces about their lives and they are some of the most genuine, sincere people I have ever met.
Day 6: Travel
Where did you travel this year? What was your favorite part? If you didn’t get to travel, where do you want to go next year?
I traveled to NOLA with the 'bees in April. My favorite part of this trip was getting to know some of these women a little better and, of course, it didn't hurt that we were in a fabulous city :) I went to the meet-up in 2010 and I hope to attend the next one in 2012!
Husband and I were also able to take a trip to Puerto Rico in June. I loved being able to just relax and spend time with him. Also the food was ah-mazing. One day I'll blog about it- promise ;)
Next year, we would like to travel to Seattle because I've had a crush on that city since forever. We'll see though what 2012 brings!
