what didn't happen last year...

Wednesday, January 4, 2012
It's about that time when everyone starts reflecting on the past year, making new year's resolutions or just plain breaking them after only a few days. (Sidenote - I can't believe it's 2012 and I have yet to make a resolution.)

By having this blog, I can look back over the past year and recount what I did with friends and family and where my head was at in March, May or July. That's one great thing about having a blog - you can always read through the past events whenever you want.

Looking back at my posts, I had a pretty kick ass time (yes, I said kick ass and mean it) and I wouldn't take anything back. Not a damn thing or wish anything happened differently because it was a roller coaster of a time.

I attended the Jump Back Ball for the first year with friends and realized how much I was missing by not attending sooner and a Lexus Dark Ride event at the Playhouse, where we saw Dev and Jay Sean perform a few songs. My high school friends and I met up in DC for a weekend of laughs, wine and dancing and I sang my ass off to my third Lady Gaga concert. I watched my younger brother's law school graduation (he did it!) and purchased the LV bag I've been dreaming of for four flipping years. I continued my summer of concerts with attending both Britney Spears and New Kids on the Block in the same week.

In August, I started the beginning of my summer/fall travel with heading to BlogHer for the first time to meet up with fabulous bloggers followed by attending two Indians games in the Social Suite and then celebrating two friend's birthdays to round out the month.

In September, I jetted down to Folly Beach, S.C., for a very good friend's bachelorette party for Labor Day weekend and what a weekend it was then got up bright and early to tailgate for the Browns home opener.

In mid September, I shared my most personal post in all four years of writing this blog about my break up. And, it turns out that the demise of my relationship proved pretty popular with all of you because I had a daily record of people visiting!!! I kid you not.

I took some much needed time off and came back a month later with a new design, new apartment and a refreshed perspective and a hot new style to boot.

In November, I celebrated one of my best friend's birthdays and headed south to Punta Cana with another friend to get our grooves back after experiencing ridiculous eerily similar breakups within months of each other. With the holidays approaching, I finished up most of my apartment decorating and only have a few more things to purchase until I'm onto the bedroom.

Phew.... Are you still with me?

So where will this year take me?

Up to the fabulous age of 29. 14 days and counting!

A ski trip. Check!

Jump Back Ball. Check!

Girls' weekend in DC. Third year in a row!

(And that's just the first three months.)

Dating cute boys. Well, not yet.

So, I'll let you friends play match maker. Why not, right?

I wish you would have told me you wanted that LV bag. I would have given you mine! Josie

there is nothing like being able to look back at the good, and the bad, and being thankful for it all! its a great outlook to have and one that attracts positive people into your life, its so disheartening when people let one bad thing (like a break up) overshadow all the awesome things they have done! props!
