One of the best things about having a blog is being able to look back on the year gone by. So I may cringe in embarrassment a little at my first posts, or questionable outfit choices, but overall it has been a fun and enjoyable learning curve! I always get butterflies at the end of the year thinking about how time is flying by and yet my 'bucket list' is growing longer. But instead of focusing on the things I haven't yet found time to do, I have decided to look back at some of the highlights of 2011...
♥ Starting my first blog, Give Me Bows
♥ Buying a DSLR and learning about photography
♥ Sewing my first handmade skirts and dresses
♥ Learning so much about my personal style
♥ Celebrating the one-year mark at my workplace
♥ Improving my fitness (thanks to bootcamp and the 30 day shred)
♥ Making friends with some of the loveliest blogger ladies
♥ Exploring our new neighbourhood
♥ Finally reading classic books like Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Old Man and the Sea
♥ Learning the importance of 'me' time (a good excuse for many manicures!)
What are your highlights of 2011? Last but not least, thank you so much for your friendship, sweet comments and helpful tips and advice over the past year, I really appreciate it. I hope you all have a safe and happy new year!
