A few things worth mentioning from my life in 2011.

New Relationship

Possibly the best thing to happen to me all year happened on April 17th. That’s the day that I met Miranda at the 72nd Street Cafe near Green Lake. As soon as we started talking, I could tell that there was chemistry between us. After that day, I couldn’t (and still can’t) get enough of her. Honestly, I can say that I’ve never been happier. Ever. Life is just better with Miranda in it. I’m very thankful and incredibly lucky to have such a intelligent, caring, funny, witty, beautiful, and all-around wonderful woman in my life.

I toyed around with the idea of buying a motorcycle for a few months, so after doing some research and getting my endorsement, I bought one! I bought a 2006 Suzuki GS650. It’s a blast! 2011 Summary

Seattle to Portland

In July, Chris and I rode our bicycles 204 miles from Seattle to Portland.

**In. One. Day**  

It wasn't easy, it wasn't fun (after the first 150 miles), but it was an amazing accomplishment.
