2011- The Year In Blog Posts

This week, I chose the most complex prompt that Mama Kat offered for her Writer’s Workshop.  So get comfy, folks:  this is gonna be a long one.

1.) This year in blog posts…choose a favorite post from each month of 2011 and share.

January 6 – That Martha – My last remaining aunt passed away on December 31 of last year. This was a post I wrote in memory of her and her sunset funeral.

February 2 – I Do, I Do, 02/02/02 –  Motor Man and I celebrate our anniversary on February 2. This post includes some photos from our wedding day.

March 24 – The Hope Of A Shelter Kitty. We had just been recently adopted by our kitty, Sundae, when I wrote this poem.  I made a donation to the humane society based on the number of comments on this post.

April 19 – I’ve Been Pressed – Having my blog recognized by wordpress.com resulted in many new readers… and friends.

May 13 – Toes.  I wrote this post about the day that my son, Marshall, at four-months old,  discovered his toes.

June 16 – Just Yesterday. Celebrating Marshall’s birthday.

July 21 – “L” As In Yellow – This post was one of my favorites because the photo was perfect for the story.

August 4 – Saving The Day – A favorite post because it’s about my two favorite guys.

September 22 – Where I’m From – This post took some thought, and is one of my all-time favorites.

October 31 – Halloween Haunts –  Bacon’s Castle is a special old house to  my family. It was featured in a PBS video a couple of years ago, and Marshall had a role in the video.

November 27 – Quick! Detour To The Park – You knew I’d have to have at least one sunrise/sunset post in this collection.

December 17 – Moonrise-Moonset – This is my favorite post for this month, because I shared my first (semi-successful) attempt at night-time photography.

And there you have it: my favorite posts from 2011.  So tell me: which of these was YOUR favorite?
