“End” 2010

31 Fri, 2010 § 2 Comments

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore.  Dream.  Discover.”

~Mark Twain

2010 has been a big year for us.

Exciting, stressful & finally taking its toll on me these last few weeks, I am ready to go on & move forward, embracing the aspects that made this year great — that brought each moment to life.  New Year’s Eve seems like the day to revel in these experiences.

Maybe you will learn a little more about me.

Dave & I spent three weeks in Thailand in March.  [I will share our trip with you on our Thailand anniversary.]

Then we married in the desert only a few days after flying home [on an especially blustery day :)]!

2010 was our first full year as “parents”.

We dove into new adventures with friends,

created our own traditions together,

& savored “old” favorites in a new light…aww, Indian Creek.


Of course, we hit the rock every chance we could.

I discovered a passion for photography.



& am learning to embrace & explore my own style in the kitchen.

We quit our jobs & moved to Arizona…so here we are now.

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”

~Hal Borland

[Thank you Faith for the beautiful quote above.]

2010 has been a bit of a whirlwind, but a whirlwind of happiness & adventure.  Holding back in life only leads to regret; sometimes we have to leap from what is comfortable into the life we know, deep down, we want.  Embrace each moment of the ride, even when it’s a bit bumpy.

I wish you happiness & adventure in 2011!


What stood out to you about 2010?  Tell me about it here or link to your own “end of year” post.  I would love to learn more about you too. 😉
