I saw a quote this week on television and it really hit home for me.   

"Sometimes you have to look back to see how far you have come".  

So very true.  It made me think of many different aspects of life, 
but for now, I think I will apply it to this little ole blog.  

Going in to 2011, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to start a blog.  
In January, 2011, I made good on that resolution.

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my life with all of you.
I appreciate each and every one of you for stopping by and commenting.
Sometimes when I am not feeling very creative, I go back and look at my past posts
and the lovely comments that you all leave and it truly inspires me to keep going.

With that said, I am going to take a look back at some of my favorite posts from 2011,
just to see how far I have come.....

1.  The Heart of the Home

2.  It's About Time

6.  New and Improved

7.  Dumpster Diving Diva

8.  Patience Pays Off

9.  When I Grow Up

10.  Dining Room Reveal

We are off to celebrate the new year.
2011 was a great year and I am looking forward to what's to come in the new year.
Thank you so much for your kindness, support and friendship.  I wish you all a Happy New Year!

I will be posting my 2012 New Year's Resolutions tomorrow.  Look out world!
