2011 reflections

Since 2011 only has a few hours left, I thought this would be the perfect time to do a little wrapping up.

2011 was a great year. So many people we know would beg to differ, but we feel that it's been a very very good year for us.

For one, my husband started teaching piano, for real. He has a bunch of students and he teaches 2 days a week (and works at his other job the other 5 days a week). So, even though we don't get to spend as much time together as we'd like, he's working his way towards his real career, which is to teach piano full time. One of these days he will be there, teaching 5 days a week, and he can say "so long!" to his other job. For now though, we are making this work. It's a great opportunity, and even though we don't have the time together that we'd like to have, one day we will and can look back knowing it was all worth it.

We also started selling origami bouquets and such on etsy. We have a full wedding to do later on in the new year, and a few other bouquets have already been requested for 2012. I also started selling craft items and cake pops. This year I attended a few craft shows, and had my own booth/table, where I was able to sell some homemade/handmade items. They were fun experiences and I got to meet other local crafters/artists. I learned a lot from the shows I participated in and I hope to do even more in 2012.

We laid out all of our plans on the table. We've got goals and ideas ready to take off. Dreams are no longer dreams but are becoming reality. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't like to just say I'm going to do something, but I actually act on those things. I'm the kind of person who follows through, and 2011 has proven that. 2012 is going to prove it even more.

I would do a pictorial post, breaking down each month and such, but I think I'll just leave with one photo this year.

Happy New Year!
