2011 was a big year for us - a year of goodbyes and a year of hellos.
We left our friends in the East for a new life out West.
We packed the car, loaded up on some caffeinated beverages, and blasted the volume on the stereo.
We had no real plan, no hotels booked, we just drove. And oh boy, the adventures we had...
Along the way, we saw some great sites, ate some great food, and made some great memories.

2012: This is the year


This is the year where I work on doing my best and to focus on what I did right.
This is the year where I don't beat myself up on my little mistakes. I'm not going to let that little voice of self-doubt get in my way.
This is the year I remind myself not to compare myself to the "hares" of the world. I'm going to be happy with my consistent progress, even if it isn't where I thought I'd be.
This is the year where I strive for balance in my life. I'm going to let some things slide -- life will still go marching on and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.

This is the year of persistence.
