I love and appreciated everyone from our wedding party for being there on our special day three years ago! They are all our best friends and really put up with a lot on that terribly hot humid day!!
December 3 – Moment.
Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

I would have to say the moment this year was probably our wedding day. So much happened that day but it still has so many clear memories. I think one of the best parts of the day was dancing towards the end of the reception. The DJ was going strong with music that was pleasing all of the crowd. My friends and family were all out on the dance floor. It was hot, people were sweating but it all made it worth it.
J and I were discussing the other weekend what in the heck we were going to accomplish in 2011. So much happened during late 2009-2010 that I’m not sure what else we need to do!
June 2009 – Got engaged
August 2009 – Find house we want to buy
October 2009 – Finally close on great first home
December 2009 – I finish my MBA
January 2010 – Now that all that other stuff is out of the way time to start wedding planning
March 2010 – Purchase first vehicle together
June 2010 – Wedding’
July – November 2010 – Finally settle into new home
December 2010 – First Christmas at home
I am going to try to participate in Reverb’s 2010 reflection challenge. Here is today’s prompt:
December 1 One Word.
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

My one word for 2010 would have be Love. We were surrounded by so much love in 2010 it was amazing. I have never felt more supported by our friends and family.
When I was home this weekend, I worked on a scrapbook page for my grandmothers 80th birthday. My sister and I had lots of fun looking through old albums looking for great pictures. I found several from when I was young but then also wanted to include a more recent picture.
Here is the picture I selected to use in my grandmothers photo album. I think I will also use this one in my wedding album.
