Saying Goodbye to 2010

The year started strong....

2010 brought us a beautiful, healthy, happy, chubby, funny, silly, CRAZY baby into our lives. My cherub blue eyed girl brings this house more laughter and joy than I could have ever imagined.

It got rocky for a little while there....

2010 brought pain, grief, and postpartum depression.

2010 sent me to a counselor for the first time since I held my daughter in my arms for the last time 6 years prior and said goodbye.

2010 saw friendships rocked. Some ended. There were tears and pain.

2010 made me watch others in such excrutiating emotional pain that it brought me to tears regularly.

It had it's redeeming qualities too....

2010 introduced me to yoga, the first and only form of exercise I've ever been able to say I truly enjoy.

2010 brought me to a point of searching in my life. Who I am and where I want to be for years to come. I'm still working on that one.

2010 ended with a new home and happy family of four. Truly happy.

2010 renewed my strong love for Andrew in a way that 15 years after I first met him, I still get butterflies when around him.

2010 had my husband tell me that he has gotten his wife back, after 6 1/2 years. He is seeing me truly happy again.

Tonight, I say goodbye to 2010. I know it won't be a year I will forget for so many reasons. I'm looking forward to 2011. Tonight, I'll toast to New Beginnings. I'm not sure I'm make true New Year's Resolutions. We'll see.

Goodbye 2010.

I think 2010 will go down as a challenging year for a few of us, myself included. All the best for 2011...
