Wow. Hard to believe it's over, but 2011 was a great year, here’s a recap of what went down:
Kicked off the New Year (while recovering from food poisoning – ugh!!) in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. (You can't tell from this photo, but for a time, I was completely miserable during this trip...)
Took an annual ski trip to Europe and visited Megeve, France, Verbier and Zermatt in Switzerland. Ate my fill of cheese and chocolate. Hung with some seriously cool pups.
Enjoyed time with friends and family at home in New York. (karaoke-ed like there was no tomorrow.)
Celebrated our 6 year anniversary (and my birthday!!) in Barcelona. An amazing trip filled with cava, futbol and as much jamon as we could get our hands on.
Traveled with the British Virgin Islands to celebrate a friends wedding, and ending up staying awhile for some R&R. Never wanted to leave Little Dix Bay.
Spent a lovely and restful weekend in Vermont.
Traveled to Carmel, California for another wedding (love it when friends get married in beautiful places!!) and road tripped to Pismo Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway.
Enjoyed the last bits of summer with weekends in Sag Harbor, Saratoga and at home in NYC.
Toasted at my best friend’s country garden wedding in Virginia.
Danced the night away at an elegant wedding for a dear friend in New York City.
Celebrated a birthday in San Francisco, noshed on BBQ oysters in Northern Cali and rested in Half Moon Bay.
Celebrated Christmas early in NYC with friends and then later in Charlotte with loved ones.
So, that was my 2011 in a nutshell. Hope you had an amazing year, too! Here's looking forward to an amazing 2012!

Admittedly, I’m the worst at baking (strict rules about numbers and measurements really throw me off...), but I’m really great at eating baked goods. Which is why Tasting Table’s “12 Days of Cookies” series caught my eye (and my sweet tooth). If you're looking for a new recipe to try out this Holiday season, look no further. Ain't no party like a cookie party.
