favorite adventures from 2011


I can't believe there are only 12 days left in 2011. It's been a really great year filled with adventures, love and happiness- exactly the things that I wish for everyone in the new year.

Here's a look back at some of the adventures I enjoyed the most <3 Then it's on to Christmas celebrations now that I'm finally caught up with Etsy orders!

i built an igloo all by myself. then i made Marissa hangout with me inside. it was awesome.

enjoyed tea at the plaza with my mom and Maris

celebrated my birthday in Manhattan

got to check out the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival (thanks to our tv production friends Niki and Matt!)

met Finn for the first time and spent the weekend with Alexi and Dave in Connecticut

Hiked Black Mountain and saw a black bear

fell in love with Yosemite

celebrated 2 Years by the sea

spent a glorious weekend in Shenandoah

painted with light in Candlewood

hiked Mount Taurus and stopped for lunch in one of my favorite NY mountain towns

toured all around Washington DC with Mel

Stood/sat in 3 places at once (ny, ma, ct!)

went for a long walk at the beach

hiked, biked and caught up in Montauk

worked on my "in time" project

went for a lovely november hike

ran in the 5 mile turkey trot on Thanksgiving morning (and actually finished the race)

Now I'm looking forward to cozy evenings by the fire, Christmas carols, and fancy dinners.

Thank you for being amazing 2011!
