Today's "2011 Favorites" guest post comes from a very special friend of mine. My sister blogger.  I'm very grateful that she's sharing her favorite moment of 2011, while it's really not mine since it's part of our geographic separation, I am very happy for her family & this very BIG moment.
Without further ado...

Hello wanderers.  I’m Becky, the creator behind Ballistic Gypsy.  I'm a Libra, a sometimes blogger, a list maker, dog lover, full time mother, & occasional tree hugger.

2011 favorites...
How can I pick just one favorite? 2011 was an action packed year full of change.
I was able to make some progress on my Life List, or as others call it, a “Bucket List”. I’m not a fan of the phrase, Bucket List. It sounds so morose. Anywho- Life List Number 48: “Buy a house, then spend the next several years making it my dream home” We did it. We took the suffocating plunge and bought a house. Our first house. It is by far, not my Dream Home, but it is a work in progress and I feel more like an adult nowadays. From here on out, we are taking life one DIY at a time.

It is still hard to believe that we left our home in Savannah, Ga. and moved over 1700 miles away to the Southwestern side of Texas. (Thank you, Army. I owe you one.)

During our weeklong road trip hauling two kids, one large dog, driving two vehicles and towing a third, we endured two highway blowouts, a cracked windshield, a nervous Great Dane, and many tears shed by all. On the up side, we crossed paths with your host, Jessica and her family as they were returning from their “Great American Road Trip.” It was cold, it was windy, and there was lots and lots of rain, but we weathered the storm and spent an hour together at a truck stop McDonalds in the middle of nowhere, to say our goodbyes. It was a sad day, although exciting as well.
So here we are. A new state, a new home, and a new life. This may not be my current favorite of 2011, nevertheless it is, by far, the most memorable. Years from now, I will most likely look back and remember this as a Favorite of 2011.
