I feel a little bit bad because I know this was a tough year for a lot of people but I can’t help but be amazed when I look back at how awesome 2011 actually was. I hit my entire personal development goals and objectives. I quit smoking. It was a year of wedding bells (Ours were the best, no offense ,I am biased) Mexican beaches, the completion of my masters, Phoenix sunrises and sunsets, Chelsea Handler drunk on stage, Twins games, a Saints game, One of the last performances of Mike DeStefona’s life. Dog walks, peddle pubs, Arsenic and Lace. Roofers and plumbing make over’s for goodness sakes. Country car trips into the heart of Wisco, golf lessons, books and movies and probably way too many drinks. It was a year of seemingly constant celebration. Of new beginnings. Of a few mournful endings. I feel somewhat strange to be so optimistic about the future when so many harbor so much doubt but as I look to the horizon of 2012 I do so with a big smile on my face, peace in my heart and a mind that is firing on all cylinders. For my wonderful wife and those who I have had the honor of spending time with this last year I thank you and I raise a glass in your names. Cheers
