Brandi's Year In Review + 2011 goals

2010 was a good year for me, i can't complain.
my friendships grew, my bank account shrunk, we traveled a lot, i met a lot of amazing people, got to know family, we became even closer to my g-ma, we got to spend a lot of time with Ryder Bear, friends got married, friends had babies, helped my sister move away, talked her into moving back, i laughed, i cried, i had fits, we moved to a new house and i created. 

Totally excited about 2011

you really are an inspiration. great goals for the new year! best wishes.

Rodney said...

Awesome pictures! I'm so inspired of the things that you've up to, especially moving in another place. It's like New Year, new home.

My wife and I just moved in to our new house in Omaha. There's only one thing that we need to fix, the roofing of the house. We didn't like the design and color of the roof. So, we searched for the best roofing contractors (Omaha area). Thankfully, there are many roofing companies, Omaha, NE to choose from. Thanks for sharing the photos!
