This is a story board I decided to do for 2011. If I have time I might go back and do one for 2010. I am planning on doing this every year. I am going to have it blown up to 12 x 12 and printed. I plan to hang it in my living room. 2011 has been a phenomenal year. Not only personally, but also professionally. I can’t even begin to desribe how truly blessed I am. So as I say goodbye to 2011 I am looking forward to all the amazing things that will happen in 2012.
