{yup, that's the view out of my window}

I have been looking forward to recapping 2011 for months – I know that’s a little strange especially since the year wasn’t even over when I started thinking about it, but I have been reflecting on this year so much lately and have everything to be thankful for. You guys know how much I love adventures (that’s one of my favorite aspects of this blog – getting to share them with you), and this was the MOST adventurous year of my life, hands down.

Let’s see… I started the year off in Breckenridge for my birthday, went to the X-Games & boarded Aspen, hit up Laguna Beach for the weekend, had an incredible experience at NYFW and met some of the most amazing girls in the world, was the maid of honor at my Best Friend’s wedding, snowboarded the whole season in Colorado and finally did a double black diamond bowl (I was stoked), traveled to San Francisco, Austin, spent the 4th of July in Newport Beach with my best friend boating around the harbor, somewhere in there enjoyed being at home in Dallas with friends and family, went back to NYFW where my gals and I threw the inaugural Blogger’s Night Out, flew to Paris for the weekend spent a day in Versailles, and THEN… I moved to Chicago! Rounding out the year, I have a new job at the fastest growing company ever (literally), I’m enjoying a new city and loving all of the new friends that are in my life.

Like I said.. I have a LOT to be thankful for this year. I was able to experience one of the craziest years a girl could have and got my fill of adventures, for sure. I’ll be honest – although on paper/blog it sounds crazy awesome, it had its ups and downs. This year really pushed and tested me in a lot of ways, but we’re always better for it. I wouldn’t have had it any other way & I know everything that happened this year is just preparing me for what’s to come next year.

So, what’s on the horizon in 2012? The glorious thing is… I do not know! My personal resolution is to worry less, plan less and just be more. There are so many things in life that I cannot control or plan, and I am excited to see what comes my way this year. One thing I will resolve to do is post more – I vow to find a better balance with my new life here in Chicago and keep you guys updated since this past month and a half was insane and I wasn’t able to as much. You guys are the best and the reason I blog, so thank you for making this such an incredible year! I’m looking forward to another with you :)

I truly believe that the best is yet to come, and I’ll be ringing in the New Year (and my birthday!) wishing you the same. Hugs & Kisses to you all!

Congratulations on all your accomplishments. Of course there have to be downs so that we really cherish the ups. Can’t wait to see you again at NYFW and actually make it to BNO this time.

Thank you Ria! Can’t wait to see you in Feb! :)

Great recap…happy new year! :)

Ahhh I love this. This year has been a whirlwind. And I am so glad we met. You are such a dear friend to me.

Cheers to a brand new year, 2012! May it be filled with more adventures, joy and happiness.

Love you CP xo
