In 2011 I…

  • Cried for three days straight after my puppy was hit by a car.
  • Recovered and 6 months later bought Mac, a purebred Border Collie.

  • Got my first speeding ticket. *Sob*
  • Spoke at our State Capitol.
  • Called an English Country dance for several hundred people. And had a blast doing it!
  • Was home alone for 3 days and concluded that it is not good for man (or woman) to be alone.
  • Visited California for the first time.
  • Was able to pray with all 50 of my students together before our annual recital. And felt overwhelmed by God’s blessings to me.

  • Turned 21!
  • Discovered that peppermint essential oil + coffee is an amazing combination!
  • Delivered a speech at the Providential History Festival on Corrie ten Boom.

  • Went to an English Country workshop and danced with hippies (not even joking!).
  • Tried dying my hair reddish with natural henna. And it worked!
  • Made my one (and only) perfect pound cake.

  • Burnt my face to a crisp in the Spring sun. I wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Met David Limbaugh.
  • Went to a formal dinner; the one time I wish my stomach had more capacity.
  • Tried water-skiing. “Epic fail”, as my brothers would say. But hey; I tried.
  • Had my first legal drink. But you probably already guessed that.

    Yep… 2011 was an awesome year – a hard year at times, it definitly had it’s challenges, but God uses both to grow us!

    Yeah, trying to ski was a lot of fun! When I came back, it was so funny…. I would tell people I skied, but then when they asked me how I liked it, it would always come out that I never actually got up… Lol

    Will y’all be at Liberty Day this year? Oh, and if you ever need someone to demonstrate at a dance.. Remember, I’m always happy to!

    God Bless,
    Emil
