365/365 The numbers are slightly off on this blog. Unfortunately I didn’t number the photos correctly as I uploaded them. However I can assure you that there are 365 photos, one for each day of 2011!
On New Year’s eve, Chris and I took some visitors to downtown Denver. There were fireworks. I was glad I got to spend the evening with good friends. 
More than anything, this blog has helped me see everyday blessings more clearly than before. It’s as fun to look back at the random days as much as the days where “big things” happened.

364/365 Today was a very strange day because it was my last day of work at my first job out of college. This is my completely cleaned out cubicle.
On Monday, in the new year, I will be starting another job and a new chapter of my life. It’s ironic that all this change happened at the end of the year when this blog is ending as well.

362/365 The Harrisons got me this fleece for Christmas. It’s a great memento from our time together in Breckenridge!

358/365 We skiied/snowboarded Breckenridge today! This is Mrs. Harrison, Andrew, and I about to make our way down from the mountain. We became experts at skiing the obscure back bowls that few people knew about… (Kidding.)

357/365 The day after Christmas I flew back to Denver and drove out to Breckenridge to spent a couple days with Chris’s family! This is the view that I always admire when I’m driving out to the mountains.

356/365 Merry Christmas! The Roth family celebrated with the traditional stocking-opening on my parents’ bed, opening presents, and then spending the day at our grandparents’ place.

355/365 On Christmas Eve my dad decided that we would go for a family walk around Reeds Lake in East Grand Rapids. My brother ended up jogging and my mom retired to the car where she proceeded to stalk us with the camera.

354/365 My family made a big mistake. We decided to start a Monopoly game at 11:50 pm! Everybody knows Monopoly takes forever. People usually give up before it ends. But my family got really competitive and we stayed awake until 2:00 am furiously trying to monopolize each other. We were so tired we were laughing at things that didn’t make any sense. This is a picture of us realizing how crazy we were for staying up this late for a game.

353/365 I went to Holland for a girl’s night and met up with Casey. We went shopping on 8th Street and got happy hour at CityVu while we waited for our friends. It was so good to see some of the girls and have a sleepover at my cottage!

352/365 My mom and I went out to dinner with Mrs. Behm and Jill. It was so much fun to catch up with them! It reminded me of the time the four of us spent in Switzerland together exploring the country and playing euchre.
P.s. Neither Jill nor I knew that in a couple of days Jill would be an engaged woman! Christmas morning was more exciting than usual this year!

351/365 The Denver Airport was decked out for Christmas. I was very excited to fly home to see family and friends!

349/365 After snowboarding at Keystone all day, we made a bonfire in the backyard of our ski house. In this picture you can see the beautiful view with the sun setting on the foothills, and you can see the back of the ski house.

348/365 Spent the day snowboarding at A-Basin. The lines were short and the day was sunny. Chris spent his time learning how to telemark, which is a more difficult form of skiing. It was nice because I was faster than him for once. But by the end of the day he caught up with me. It was so warm out that we only wore base layers while taking a break in the parking lot (hence this picture of Chris in his ski leggings). Haha.
