2010, A Year to Remember

There are many words that come to mind when reflecting on the past year: stressful, life-changing, uplifting. Reflecting back on moments that made up this year, some bring a tear to my eye and some bring a smile to lips. 

Here are some of the highlights:

The celebration of my grandfather's life in his passing.
The "a-ha" moment when realizing you want to spend the rest of your life with someone.
The torture of purchasing an engagement ring and keeping it a secret.
The big proposal and the accompanying story that will be told over and over and over again (but never gets old).
A new addition to the family in Miss Aubrey.
First professional political win (many years in the making).
The miracle of modern medicine and the speedy recovery of my mother after open heart surgery.
Spending Christmas with someone you love.
Ringing in the New Year with truly good friends.

As 2010 draws to a close the excitement in me builds about the year to come. 2011 is going to be a year packed with new beginnings and life milestones. Now to just solidify my resolutions....
