so 2011's barely a few hours away, and while i'm eagerly anticipating with bated breath what lies in store for me in the year ahead, i cant help but to reminisce and smile at how utterly UH-MAY-ZING this year has been.
without doubt, this year has been by far, the most eventful, interesting, productive, happiest, year of my life. the freaking best year i have had, since ever!
and while i may have gained a pound or two (or three or four) this year, i guess that's all because of how happy i have been! seriously, all i can remember this year is all the laughter, happiness, fun, and adventure that i've had. no memory at all of tears, sadness, misery, or depression. if they did exist at all this year, they were fleeting and quickly replaced with a smile. :)
so, take a walk with me through the memories of this year, will you?
kicked off my 2010 with RBS, which was a blast! 56 days of absolute awesomeness! met so many wonderful new people and had so much fun and new experiences there!
