2011 - The Year of Twos

Well, the new 2011 collage is done and it looks pretty darn good.  This the 13th one now hanging in our den.  Upon assembling it and looking back over this blog for the past year, it came to our attention that 2011 was a year of twos.  That is, we did a lot of stuff more than once in this same calendar year.  Here's a few examples:

Saw Grace Potter & the Nocturnals perform twice

Saw Augustana perform twice (on the same road trip)

Saw Jack's Mannequin perform twice

Saw Brett Dennen perform more than twice

Saw The Dirty Guv'nahs perform twice

Saw two Nashville Predators playoff games

Saw two home games for the Tennessee Titans

Took two different music cruises to Cozumel, Mexico

Took two trips to the Outer Banks of North Carolina

Two trips to Las Vegas for Rob

Saw Mat Kearney perform more than twice

Saw Alpha Rev perform more than twice

And finally, we want to do twice as much in 2012! 

The new year is shaping up nicely already with several concerts including The Dirty Guv'nahs (again!), O/A/R, Gaelic Storm, Roger Waters and Trevor Hall. We got a couple big trips planned to Aruba with some friends in February, and a 3-country tour of Europe in May for our 11th wedding anniversary that will include Poland, Italy and the Netherlands, and yet another trip back out to The Outer Banks of North Carolina in July.

Happy New Year everyone!
