2011 was one of my favorite years by far. Along with a new job, a new relationship, new friends & some exciting new side projects/hobbies (running, teaching, knitting, Etsy selling), the music of 2011 was also pretty incredible. Here's my list of favorite albums from the past year. I'm looking forward to see what 2012 has in store! Happy New Year everyone!
