Momo Moments 2011

posted by Momo Fali on December 26, 2011

Last year, my husband told me that I should post a year-end recap. Because my brain is currently swimming in a sea of egg nog and peanut butter blossoms, this seems to be a good time to do it again.

In January, I traveled to Nashville and wrote my last Oprah Cliffs Notes. *sniff*

On Valentine’s Day, I posted the story that I would later read in front of thousands of people at the BlogHer Voices of the Year keynote. *gulp*

March, and looming swimsuit season, meant that I wrote about my battles with my weight. Again.

I rewarded my son upon my return from Seattle in April. Then he insulted me. Also, what else is new?

In May, he insulted a cashier.

And, in June he kind of called me a man.

In July, I asked Question of the Day XI and I took my daughter on a trip to Chicago to visit my friend, Melisa.

I traveled to San Diego in August and I almost didn’t come home.

In September, we visited the Lake Erie shore and I realized that I gained the confidence that I never had in my twenties.

I gave out running advice in October…you know, like “Never trust a fart” and I traveled to New York to mingle with professional writers and editors who probably don’t ever write about such things.

In November, I visited the Hocking Hills in southern Ohio and I lost my mind and tried to post every single day. I almost did it because it’s easy to write when you have a constant companion.

And, a couple of weeks ago, I gave you a peek into my lovely home.

Thank you to all of the readers who swung by here this past year. Also, thank you to the sponsors who gave away experiences, books, gift baskets, clothing, a coffee maker, a Kindle Fire and over $600 in gift cards to those incredibly awesome and influential readers. I am a lucky blogger.

Cheers, everyone. Here’s to a fabulous 2012 for all of us!

    You traveled more this year than I think I have in my entire life!

    I hope you are continuing to love your new job!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That last comment reminds me of what I’ve been thinking about this year–How long will it be before we read a story about a blogger who got hunted down by the IRS for unclaimed “gifts?” (I know you weren’t saying that you personally won all of those things–It just made me think of this subject (again).

    Off to poke around in those links ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wishing you and yours much happiness in the coming new year. And if you ever come to the San Francisco Bay area, I’ll happily show you the redwoods.

  • Victoria

    So glad to have made your acquaintance this year on Twitter and now through your blog. I totally relate to soaking my brain in a sea of egg nog and peanut butter candy, or at the very least wanting to. Happy New Year!
