I'm not going to lie, 2010 was filled with a whole lot of crap, and I was not sorry to see it go. We lost my dog and my grandmother. My car got smashed by a 40-foot pine tree. The nature of my job changed, and to be perfectly honest I don't enjoy it the same way I used to. We are in a time of great risk during the purchase of a business and our leap of faith isn't over as fast as we would like it to be.
2010 has been taxing, to say the least.
But a lot of good things happened in 2010 too. Of the "blessings" variety. Ergo, the following:
I started the year off quite nicely with a Caribbean cruise with my buddy Angela and some blog friends who have become some of my closest friends. I left Jack behind, but he kept busy missing me.
February was filled with snow days, Valentine's Day, Awana, a taekwondo tournament, and most excitingly, the purchase of my new bike, Lucy.
March was my birthday and our anniversary, which we celebrated in style thanks to my romantic and surprising husband. This is also the month that I actually learned how to cook from scratch thanks to The Pioneer Woman (thought it wasn't always pretty!). I made a video about my mom's Multiple Sclerosis. Oh, and I vowed to never emotionally invest in a sporting event again.
