Year in Review | 2011

The winter white stuff covered the grounds during the first months of this year- leaving me toasty indoors!
I got (surprise) notice of my salsa recipe publication in Simple and Delicious Magazine
Miss Ashley’s wedding festivities started full swing!  Myself and the other bridesmaids threw her Bridal Shower at Brio in Southkake (still one of my very favorite places to eat!)

Chocolate Broccoli had fun with the camera thanks to Memory Makers Photography
Jordan and I also took advantage of the Memorial Day weekend with a ‘stay-cation’ at the Gaylord, we were lazy in our cabana for four days- pictures weren’t allowed 😉
Gearing up for summer by spending plenty of (pool) time with friends
My girls and I also made an appearance honky-tonkin’ on stage at the Byron
We welcomed Baby Landon Tapella into our group- just a few short weeks later, Jacqueline and Travis outdid themselves with an amazing party celebrating the 4th
 These Massey’s made plans for a move- first to Big Massey’s for about a month, and then onto Fort Worth.  It was rough- but we had each other to make it all work.  We are a perfect team.

The sweltering heat didn’t stop us from having fun outdoors.
Restaurant Week did me well this August- I finally enjoyed dinner at SP, and even had the chance to meet the man!

This Christmas was a beautiful one with my sweet- I enjoyed every minute spent with him and our family..
Christmas Eve service at Watermark was phenomenal, lunch at Corner Bakery then window shopping at Northpark, and a delicious evening at Maggiano’s for our annual Christmas Eve dinner. 

This year was a roller coaster ride, but ended up being quite full of unexpected blessings. 

{I welcome the New Year with open arms- ready for whatever the Lord has in store for Jordan &myself. 
If I learned anything this year it is the glory of peace through placing my full hope and trust in my Savior.}
