Where Did 2011 Begin?

This year began for us at home...we have lots of neighbors who shoot fireworks, so that provided the evening's entertainment.  Jan 1, 2011 marked one year that I has been working out with Emily at the gym...and was at a good place in my physical fitness.  In 2010, I found a new notch in my belt, and I was loving that success and also enjoying the time at the gym with Emily.

On a different level, this year began with just Emily and I in our immediate family....but we were anxiously anticipating the day (it was March 1) when we would become "Echols, Party of 3."

It will end very differently for us than it began we are so thankful to have the opportunity to be parents!
