I’m not sure about y’all, but I’m having a pretty awesome end to 2011. While I refer to this last year as my “year of recovery” I also recognize all the amazing things that have happened to me, both professionally and personally, that I’ve worked so hard to achieve. (I’ve got BIG news to share with y’all come early 2012!) It took a recent trip back “home” to Manhattan for me to really embrace how far I’ve come. Whether I’m taking in the scenic skyline of NYC, sipping a cappuccino at the café where I started PLIG, providing an in-depth sock bun tutorial to my two best friends, or rocking a favorite scarf my friend knitted for me – I’m looking forward to looking back on these days.
