Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old...

2010 has definitely been a life changing year, as I've reflected back over the past 12 months it is hard to believe how much has changed in such a short amount of time.  In the spirit of New Year's Eve here are some of my favorite moments from the past year: 

JANUARY: Here's to the baby that has changed the lives of everyone in my family for the better. His coming in the world started our year off right. Watching him grow has definitely been one of the highlights of our year. Read about his birth here.

Jake and I also got our first child...before we were married or even engaged (SHHH!) and my how he's grown. We got him when he was a little baby that I could hold like one and now he's a 65 pound toddler dog and we love him so much!

MARCH: Jake gave me some bling and asked me to marry him (read about that here). I asked him if he was serious and then said YES.

MAY: Engagement pictures! My best friend from high school took these for us and she did a fantastic job if I do say so myself!

JUNE: ROAD TRIP! We made our way up to NYC and Boston!

Our first wedding shower!

  JULY: Trip to Washington, D.C. for Justin and Ashley's wedding.
Changing of the Guard Ceremony

and a trip to the beach with my family...

September: Temple!

 OCTOBER: Love and Marriage...More pics here.


I was a slacker and didn't take pictures during Thanksgiving or Christmas, I was a little busy soaking up time of relaxation and family, but rest assured they are always on the list of best moments of this year.

I am looking so forward to this upcoming year...who knows what it may bring...another puppy? a baby (cough cough...just kidding!)? finishing painting my house...graduating!!!  Anyway, I look forward to sharing it with all of you!  

Happy New Year!!!
