2010 is coming to a close soon. What a year it has been. I don’t think anyone could have convinced me a year ago where 2010 would bring me. Change of job (and a completely drastic change at that), change of house and neighborhood (I hadn’t moved for four years), life context change, people close to me dying (sorry, I know that is depressing, but it is reality), almost moved out of state (still unsettled about that…2011…could it be my year), and that is just the tip of the iceberg. It has not all been easy and it has not all been bad. I have made mistakes. I have learned. I have grown. It has been a beautiful mess. I rarely share pictures from my own life, but please, take a trip down memory lane with me…
A trip to Paris…and a little ladies family reunion since we were all there. This was a great way to start off my year. Though, I left Paris thinking my life was going one way and boy oh boy was I wrong. Seems nothing ever really goes according to plan…but that is not always a bad thing.
My old job. Yes, I was paid to hang out with these amazing women. I loved it and miss them dearly. This is from our last official group – and we went to my favorite little spot in Minneapolis. Spyhouse. Love it and love them.
Summers in South Carolina. On the beach. I will miss those. This is from the last few days of being on staff with Campus Outreach. Such a sweet blessing in my life. Such a great season of life. It was heartbreaking to leave, but so right at the same time.
2010 was filled with weddings, as were the years in past, and many more to come in the upcoming years – but this was a year filled with some of my best friends getting married…in fact, two of my best friends married each other. Love them. Love weddings. Love love (I mean Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday…).
My new roommates. Love them dearly. So thankful to have these two amazing women with me as I venture into this new season of life and we try to figure out where to go from here. 2010 has brought us all to an interesting place. The fashionista meets the foodie meets the climber. We together make a beautiful mess as we figure out our lives, which are a beautiful mess in and of themselves.
Where has 2010 brought you, loves? Learned anything that has changed your view on life? 2010 has been a good year, but I am so excited to see where 2011 will bring me. Thankful to have you all along for the ride!
