The Year in Review: the firsts

What a year it's been! More than that, what a difference a year makes. 2011 saw me at my lowest and then climbing slowly, slowly out of the pit of despair called Depression. Every day there are small victories, victories that have eventually added up to the sum I might call a recovery.

Outside of my own little insular world, the Badgers lost the Rose Bowl, the Packers won the Super Bowl, and the Brewers made it into the playoffs but not the World Series. Wisconsin sports fans had a big, big year.

Meanwhile, back in my own little world, Compost Happens chronicled the ups and downs of 2011. Here you go, readers: the year in firsts - the first post of each month.

January -- In which we look back: the annual New Year's Day post, a retrospective
February --In which we cook Super Burgers for the Super Bowl! Oh, the memories.
March -- Potluck with the Geeks! In which Chuck creates the perfect dishes for his train club
April -- In which we look back on not just any Monday - a Monday with history
May -- In which La Petite's shoe collection decorates the fireplace mantel
June --In which we sample a Product review for Sargento Cheese - delicious
July -- In which I provide a heartfelt guest post on Women on the Fence
August -- In which I get my hands dirty with Signs of a True Gardener
September -- In which I get my hands on my new workspace
October -- In which I struggle with wardrobe and team loyalty
November -- In which Chuck and Amigo cook Racing Sausage Kabobs
December -- In which the family helps me taste and review a Hickory Farms Gift Basket

2012 promises to be an active and eventful year politically, if not more. Follow along as I live it! Compost Happens will continue to bring you real life as it happens from Daisy, your groundskeeper, taking care of home, garden, family, and coffee.

I don't understand a lot of this (being an Aussie and all) but it sounds like you pulled yourself together remarkably well.
