2011 – My Favorite Things

Each year is made up of moments. Most of them flow together in a swirling river that winds its way through the days and weeks. It is hard for me to discern individual events when they are in the past, as I am often looking forward to what is coming next.

My photos help me remember the passage of time. With the way my computer stores my photos I can be reminded of the order of things have happened.

As I reflect on the year I am reminded of some of my favorite moments.

Here is a look back at 2011 in photos.

  1. Alethea, that makes me tired seeing all that you have accomplished but it gives me great hope and inspiration. I wish you great prosperity and happiness all the years to come. I see the love is there already. you are a Great!! stimulator. Thank you for coming to my shop so I may know you and Ashley more. Great regards, Electra

  2. Love, love, love this post! Could it be because Salt Lake City was one of the best parts of my year too??? So proud of everything that you are doing! Miss you!
