A look back at 2011

I’m still finding it hard to wrap my head around the fact that 2011 has been over for nearly a week now. The year just seemed to fly by, and now that it’s over I feel slightly breathless. In order to get a bit of perspective on all that 2011 held, I’ve decided to take a look back at the year that was.
