I'm sure this is probably true no matter where you go, but we in Wisconsin are known to boast about our strange weather. Last month there was a tornado in the state. Yesterday it rained. Today there are thunderstorms in parts of the state. I'm sorry, what month is this? December? Yikes.
2011 is fast approaching. Last year around this time I looked back at all the wonderful things that happened in 2009. Allow me to recap, along with some 2010 highlights.

2009: Bought a house with the love of my life.
2010: Still here!
2009: Finally got a dog! And she's such a wonderful pup.
2010: Still a wonderful pooch!
