christmas has come + gone and i can't believe it's been weeks since i've jotted down recent happenings + random thoughts. one week of sickness followed by two weeks of a whirlwind tour through the southeast didn't exactly make it easy for me to organize my words.
but what a great christmas it was. filled with family, friends, four birthday celebrations + one rockin' NYE concert, i escorted 2009 out as one big holiday. ready for a change, a new beginning + a general blank slate, i welcomed 2010 with my hubby (of seven months now) and some great friends that always warm my heart. i looked back (but not for long) on the year (and decade) gone + thought of all the things that happened. above all, marrying eric topped the list (duh), but each month/year had held something fun + exciting, and i made a quick vow for that to happen in the year/decade to come. i measured where i began my journey to where i have arrived so far and i realized that while i've always loved looking forward to the new beginnings + start that jan. 1 never fails to bring, it's the ability to tack the current year's accomplishments, events, laughs, tears + all the times in between, to the last, that makes the holiday so amazing. it's actually looking back that makes looking ahead so exciting.
i've shortened my resolution list this year. i want some that matter + that i can keep. i hope you've given yourself some great goals as well. here's to 2010, a new year, a new decade + the SAME you - with minor improvements.
Happy New Year!
