Little Moments 2011

Every year I have good intentions about writing a Christmas letter full of highlights and news about my year.  Every year I end up not doing it.  Mostly because I live a pretty routine life, which is just fine with me, but not really very noteworthy.  That doesn't mean there aren't many occasions, both everyday and some more special, that aren't memorable to me.  One thing I enjoy every holiday season is making a photo book for my daughter with pictures from throughout the year.  Going through the year's pictures reminds me of many happy times -- the many small moments that make up my life.  So, in that spirit here's a photo summary of some of my year's memorable moments, both big and small. 

New puppy!  Lucy's first day home.
Hazlenut lattes with friends at Grounds for Coffee.
My favorite breakfast made by Mike.
 My street early on a snowy morning.
A beautiful end to a day.
Little Lucy meeting the morning coffee crew.
Sunshine in Las Vegas for my birthday.
First sign of spring in my yard.
Junior League Casino Night with my girls.
Lucy and the first daffodils of spring.
Finish line at the Ogden 1/2 Marathon with my dad and sis.
One year without Julie.
First fire of the summer.
Dinner date with Mike on a summer evening.
Gillian and Lucy.
Kiss Me Dirty race.
Practicing my golf swing.
USU ladies football clinic.
Falling in love with sweet Sophie.
Baking with Gillian.
U2 Concert.
My essential to-do list according to Mike.


  1. Looks like you had a great year to me! I wish you all the best this holiday season and in the year to come. BTW, I don't write a Christmas letter either. If folks want to know what's going on with me, they can read my blog...although I prefer that people I know don't read it so I can talk about them!

  2. Wonderful pictures! Golfing in high heels? That caught my eye. And your beautiful family, Lucy growing up a bit (a little bit)! Great pictures and a wonderful Christmas "letter."

  3. I'd say this is a great selection of 'little moments' that have been special this past year. In the end, the 'little moments' are what really count in life. XO
