It’s without a doubt that 2010 was the most memorable year of my life. From getting married down to getting my wisdom teeth out, the year was packed full of many amazing, positive memories, mixed with some extremely challenging and tough times. But looking back it was a period in my life with cause for great celebration.
The joy of a wedding, the memories of a honeymoon, the adjustments as a Mr. and Mrs., the surprise of a career change, the peace in my mom’s healing, the learning as a new wife, the fun in rediscovered hobbies, the opportunity to travel, and the challenge of a new job.
I’m sure you can relate to a year of ups and downs. It’s like I tell Chris, sometimes I find it hard to be a grown up. But as I took a trip down memory lane through my 2010 agenda today, I felt humbled and thankful.
As I sign off and head to ring in 2011 with champagne, chocolate fondue and my wonderful husband, I’m reminded that there is always hope in our circumstances, always something positive to embrace and always good to look forward to.
Happy New Year, friends. I can’t wait to see where 2011 takes us.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
