I ended the year with a hangover-free club soda taste test. I've gotta give up this party-girl lifestyle. Next year.
The contenders were Canada Dry, Seagram's, Schweppes, White Rock, and Food Club (store brand). My favorite was Seagram's.
Here's my year in cities. Not too extensive on domestic travel, but the Paris+Belgium trip was unforgettable.
San Diego, California
Hot Springs, Arkansas
Mountain Pine, Arkansas
Austin, Texas (in April and November)
New Orleans, Louisiana
Palo Duro Canyon, Texas
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Santa Fe, New Mexico
This year stacks up pretty well compared to previous years: 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Wish list for 2012: Australia, Chicago, Hawaii.
What's on your 2011 list?
This was a fat and happy year for me. Life just keeps getting better. Cheers to a fantastic 2012!
