What a difference a year makes!

NYE 2009:


Decade in Review

I got this great "Decade in Review" idea from the Bump 12-24 boards, but realized that my memory is super spotty...I can't remember which year most events took place! So here are the major events that happened from 2000-2009 (at least they're in order! I think...)

started college and working full time, got my first brand new car, met my future husband, learned a huge family secret, switched jobs (bank, loved it), Nana and Pop passed away, got a sweet little puppy dog (Zoe), got engaged and moved in with Chris, graduated college and started teaching licensure courses, traveled out of the country (twice, Bahamas), got married, did a bunch of student teaching, made new friends, lost touch with old friends, parents got divorced, lost more beloved family members (most of them way too soon), became a teacher, built a brand new house, made a baby, birthed a baby, raised a baby (successfully) her first year.

That's a whole lot of change in 10 years, some bad, most good. I have so many hopes and dreams for the next 10 years. I hope you all have a fantastic 2010, and that the New Year brings you much happiness!
