2011 in Review

January:  I rang the new years in Las Tablas, Panama, Tried Panama hats on in Casco Viejo, Went to a 100 year old ex-presidents birthday party.  We went on our first anniversary getaway in the Gamboa Rainforest! and I moved back to Florida to finish grad school.  JB later followed.
Feburary:  my best friend got engaged.  we had an engagement party.  i cooked some delicious treats.  JB turned 29!

March:  I cooked some more healthy treats.  Took a trip for my cousins deb ball for Mardi Gras.  Jessica Lorren hosted a bride’s brunch.  We surprised bff with bachelorette number one in west palm.  I fell in love with my kiddos at work.  went to the cutest dinner party ever.

April:  JB had to go back to Switzerland a bit before me. 🙁  That was a bummer.  But I did take my comps for grad school.  I got to visit my fave’s in Pensacola.

May:  My mom turned 60!  I went to vegas for bachelorette #2.  I moved back over to Basel.  We visited Edinburgh.  went to the vitrahaus in Germany.  hung out in bern.  chilled in basel a little more.  Oh yes, and I finally got my graduate degree!

June:  In June we floated down the Rhine to cool off.  No A.C. in practically all of Basel made for a steamy summer.  We went to Tuscany with our friends.  We visted firenze, ate a ton, met franco, and spent a day in Sienna & San G.  We went to Bern yet another time to work on getting our Russian Visa – which involved pompenallo roses and peonies galore.

July:  We headed to Dubrovnik, Hvar, and Split in Croatia.  We kayaked, rented a boat, hopped to different surrounding islands… it was a very good vacation.  We also hopped over to Montenegro too.  I posted about what it’s like at baseball games in switzerland for me.  We went castle hunting in Switzerland.  JB bought me my bike, Mattisse.

August:  I had one of my favorite days in the history of days.  We spent some time up in the swiss alps.  We went to RUSSIA.  We went to Berlin for a night… walked the wall and dined amongst hipsters.  We went on many bike rides.

September:  Three of my southern mama’s came to visit.  JB & I were featured in Southern Weddings.  JB Surprised me with a trip to Gruyeres – where we went to a cheese factory, and then a chocolate factory.  heaven.  Two of our closest friends were married in Lake Como, Italy!  I hung out in Zurich with my dear friend Bettina.  I met the sweet Liz in Paris.  I returned home.

October:  We had a bridal party brunch for Heath.  H&B got married!  We went fishing.  Friends threw a swedish sendoff party for C&C.

November:  I did a couple outfit posts.  We surprised Jose in NC for his 30th, and were able to go to JB’s alma mater.  I introduced Sarah Tucker Events!

{last two photos by jessica lorren}
December:  JB surprised me with LOLA.  The sweetest cutest boston terrier puppy I have ever seen.  I was featured in VIE magazine.  I turned 28!  Sarah Tucker Event’s New Years Day feature went up on 100 Layer Cake.  It was later posted on POP sugar.  I had a nice Christmas.
This year was good.  
Check out last years post if you’d like to see what 2010 was like.
Cheers to 2012 blowing the last two out of the water for all of us
 … (if that is possible)… (:
