New Year, New Perspectives

As 2011 comes to an end, I love to go back through my photos and take a mental "snapshot" of the year.

My friend from Hawaii posted a good quote recently about pictures, saying that,"You never see the hard times in a photograph, but that's what gets you from one happy snapshot to the next."

Sure life has it's ups and downs, but being that New Year's Eve is fast approaching, a little rosy retrospection never hurt anyone! Let's take a little snapshot review of my past year:

January 2011
I spent my 20th Birthday with friends and family for a dinner at Pasta Connection.
I got to visit with my high school friend B*Sto for the first time in a long while!

February 2011
My stepmom and I pose for a picture on Valentine's day as our oldest dog, Shad watches.
DJ Dave (from the Branding Iron) and myself.
 March 2011
I went camping at the Joshua Tree National Park.
I ate at a fondue restaurant for the very first time!

April 2011
I sat in line for over an hour to ride DCA's newest ride: Ariel's Adventure.
I enjoyed the few weeks that Country Thursdays took place at the Carnaval Club.

Painfully (but proudly) walked through a haunted mansion maze.
Carved pumpkins with my roomie!

I worked on my photography quite a bit this past semester.

December 2011
Found photographic pleasure in the most simple things.
Hosted a cocktail party to catch up with old friends!
Saw B*Sto for the first time in a year!

I'm so thankful and happy for all the things/events I was able to experience this past year. I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for me!
