2011 in Review

Wow!  2011 was a busy, wonderful year!  Over the last 12 months, Andrew and I both turned 30, we got ourselves two official toddlers, as a family, we visited 8 countries, Andrew went to New York to see the Yankees and I traveled to Boston to see my Red Sox, we swam almost every single day during the summer, and a special blog became a part of our every day lives.  We laughed a lot, loved a lot and felt tremendously blessed the whole year through.  Here’s a quick review…
On the 18th, Smith William turned one year old!
After 21 months, in February I got my braces off :)!!  Not going to lie…probably my favorite moment of the year.  This is me on February 8…the big day!
We were happy when Spring came and played outside as much as possible!
Andrew turned 30!!
Kensington got her cottage at Lovie and Papa Jay’s house.  It’s her home away from home.
Our family went to Bermuda for a week where Kensington got her wish and was able to swim with the dolphins.  We had so much fun!!
With record breaking heat, we swam almost every single day with our friends.  These are memories I’ll cherish forever.  Love you girls!
Dad and I made our annual trip to Boston to see the Red Sox play two games.  I love Boston.  Love it.  I love my Dad even more though :).
In September, we took a trip of a lifetime with my parents and grandparents.  The 8 of us spent two weeks traveling through England, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland and Sweden.  It was such a blast…I’ll carry these memories with me forever.
 Also in September…
…Kensington Kate turned 3 on the 15th!
I turned 30!
We spent November celebrating the holiday season with lots of love and laughter (and plenty of Starbucks and shopping!).
It’s hard to believe December has come and gone.  What a wonderful Christmas season we had!
2011 was fantastic!  I am so excited to see what’s in store for us in 2012.  I know for sure that there will be two trips to Boston plus a trip to the most magical place on Earth…stay tuned.  The Shull fun has just begun…

    What a GLORIOUS year! Give yourself a pat on the back for all the memories you've made and fun you've had.

    We are beyond blessed to have so much…and we're so smart to recognize and appreciate it. 🙂
