reflections of 2011

a friend posted her answers to these questions on livejournal and i liked the questions enough to do this for myself.  so here it is ~~~

Started really opening up to people about my past and my future plans
2.     Did you keep your New Years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I dont make New Years resolutions for the simple fact that I am constantly trying to better my life and only making resolutions or goals once a year is just crazy talk

I love this question this year because we started out the year with Kameo having Kailyn on new years day 2011 and ended the year with KC having Gunner on Dec 28th it is amazing how much I live for the babies in my life and I am blessed to have great friends and family that let me be the greatest auntie ever
4.     Did anyone close to you die?
