2011 Ta Da List

Each year since 2006 I've come up with a Ta Da list for the year. A list of things I am proud to have achieved that year. Some of the achievements are pretty big and others are just fun.
For 2011 I compiled this list by looking back over my calendar, gratitude journal and document 2011 album to make sure I didn't miss anything. I think this is the biggest list yet - possibly because I have been so busy documenting 2011 in various forms :-)
You can see my previous years here: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. (Note: 2006 - 2009 link to an old blog).
