It was an exciting 2011 for us at The Golden Means. Katelyn and I actually had the opportunity to meet up (a British Columbia, Canada to Colorado, USA rendezvous is rare, at best). Our visit was somewhat short, but we did have time to fit in one fantastic craft. We went to Sippin' n Paintin'. Perhaps you have heard of similar places, where you attend a class, enjoy a beverage, and an instructor walks you through a painting. I would encourage everyone to give it a try. My father, brother, mother and fiancé promised to attend a class with me—pictures to follow, as I can promise the results will be phe.nom.e.nal.
Admittedly, I kind of fell off the face of the planet for the last four months of 2011. Life got crazy. I was finishing a Masters program (yay!) and swamped with my lovely little first graders. Upon graduating, one of my first thoughts was how excited I was to be able to return to The Golden Means.
It’s a big year for me! I’m getting married!! September! I’m ridiculously excited to marry the love of my life (and for all of the DIY crafts--centerpieces, invitations and decorations, oh my). We’re also in the process of looking for our first home, which will probably be one that needs lots of TLC so I’m really excited for the before and after pictures. And for the first time since I was five years old, I am not a student! Which is wild, and sad in some ways, but a huge relief to have actual free time again (which really equates to wedding planning and home buying time, but a refreshing change).
So…2012. It’s gonna be big. And I’m so ready.
