2009 in Review: Pt. 1

I hope you can find the time to make it through my year, because O.M.G. I have done way more than I thought! Makes me just as excited for the upcoming 2010!!!

I’ve split up my year into a few posts to make it easier to take in…It’s been a mad/crazy year!


I did my first cross country travel in my life from California to Florida for a new job doing work on Snail Kites!

Took my first trip to a Florida Beach:


Caught/held my first baby baby bird:
