Well, 2010 is upon us. How are you feeling about letting 2009 go? I'm feeling a little nostalgic right about now. This year was a year of learning, growing, love, heartbreak, celebration and every other emotion that you can imagine.
There were many experiences from this year that I will never forget and some that I would love to forget. But, alas, that's life and you can't tell your memories to take a hike.
As I was thinking about my New Year's post, instead of just reflecting on the year I thought I would reflect on the things I did this year that I had never done before. Like I said, 2009 held lots of experiences for me!
I made a New Year's resolution (no, I had never made one before)
I graduated from college (with honors)
I started graduate school (and made a 4.0 my first semester)
I went to New Orleans...
During Mardi Gras....
And I had a Hand Grenade
I saw another friend get engaged to the man of her dreams
I got my first puppy, Millie Bug
I moved into my own place
I started paying bills
I started blogging!
I started my first 'real' job
I started collecting Willow Tree figurines (they give me daily inspiration)
I went to my first University of Tennessee football game
I significantly expanded my shoe collection
I learned the importance of having a few best friends
and I learned the importance of being able to enjoy life all by myself
So, how was 2009 for you all? Memorable? Miserable? What new things did you do this year? What new things do you want to do in 2010?
Happy New Year, lovies! I can't wait to see what this year holds for all of us!
Cheers, everyone! Talk to you next year!
