It's never been harder to say goodbye to a year! I always have a tough time taking down all of the decorations, seeing the Christmas trees out on the curb, and going back to work/school after vacation. I've been known to leave a Christmas tree up until the end of January. But for me, seeing the year my sweet boy was born end made it even harder! 2011 was the year our great life changed for the better and it would have been fine with me if it never ended. I have a feeling that I might feel that way more each year as they pass by way too fast, filled with firsts and memories.
