Happy 2011 everybody!
I’ve been real busy lately, hence my blog not having its weekly(ish) blog post recently. Since I love all my blog readers, I figured I had some ‘splainin’ to do! So, here’s my excuse (and try not to get too jealous!) 😉
It all started when I quit my current job right before the holidays. Then I spent 2 and a half wonderful weeks in California with my family for Christmas (who, since I went to Morocco this summer as opposed to home, I hadn’t seen since last Christmas!) Then I flew back to Italy and had my lovely New Year’s weekend in Südtirol in the Italian mountains with my boyfriend and some of our friends. These days I have been working my last few stints at my old job. Then, this weekend I’m off to Amsterdam with my boyfriend. Back on Sunday and start my new job on Monday! WHEW!
Needless to say, it’s been an exciting and busy time for me!
WordPress sent me this nice e-mail summary on how my blog went in 2010 (remember now, it kicked off at the end of October 2010). I thought the stats were interesting, and plus it gave me some easy material for a blog “fluff piece” being that I wanted to reach out to you, dear readers, but am still really busy these days.
That being said, here below is my blog in review for 2010. My blog has given me a lot of satisfaction, and I look forward to writing a heck of a lot more in 2011. Thanks for coming along for the ride guys!
