2011 Highlights


Photo by Kemey Lafond

Here’s a round up of all the things I blogged about this year and still have me thinking “yeah, that was awesome” as 2011 now comes to a close. The list isn’t about personal triumphs or such and there are certainly plenty of fine moments that occurred over the past 12 months that I chose not to blather about online or simply didn’t find a chance to put down in keystrokes. For a more personal perspective of why I like 2011 so much, read this Thanksgiving-y post.

2011, the good stuff:

Nevermind the bollocks, I met John Lyden!
