The objective of this meme is to reflect back upon the year. Flip through your blog and look at the very first entry for each month. Take the first sentence from that entry. Cluster them into a single post (as seen below) and tag other friends so that they might do the same.

My 2009 Year-End Meme was slightly better (although not by much.) The absence of posts is a direct reflection of the hardships we endured in 2010. It was a year where we desperately needed the physically comforting touch of family but made do with long-distance phone chats.
My outlook for 2011 is much brighter.
