2010 in the Rearview Mirror

2010 was a wonderful year. I LOVED it!
As a result, I'm so looking forward to 2011!
I have no idea what the future holds, but I look forward to it with humble anticipation.

Here are a few highlights from 2010:
Worked with some awesome people
I got my snazzy PowerShot
so I could take shots like this. Oh Oliver White, my precious baby.
GRE 
Jennifer helped me study. She was a champ and I was more than pleased with my score! Hurray!
Love them
Our first Valentine's Day!

Craig asked me to pick out my friend Laura's engagement ring!
Shane Co took good care of us!
I also dyed my hair red and got bangs... I was over that VERY quickly.

Isn't he handsome? I melt.


John Mayer
The Nashville Flood
THE Grand Old Opry. So sad, but I was so encouraged by the neighborly love we Nashvillians showed when we put aside our personal lives to help each other out.

Graduated from Belmont!

World Cup at LP Field... we rooted for the wrong team the whole time and were SO embarrassed!


Bachelorette Weekend
Went to a Hanson concert. FYI they STILL have it!


Met Donald Miller

Move in with my sister

Went to my VERY FIRST football game: Titans v. Broncos
Normally I root for the Titans, but since I'm from Colorado and still love it I was happy for the Broncos to win!

Turned 23

...and I made an AWESOME cake with lemon filling. Yum!
Took the LSAT... got a good score... took it again... got a better score... and decided I don't want to go to law school... at ALL.
Picture: stress and lack of sleep.

Laura and Craig got married and I was a bridesmaid
So blessed by her friendship.

Went to the World of Coke... and have yet to upload the pictures from my sister's camera!

Did a little pumpkin carving
Yeah, that's right. It's a dachshund. I'm crafty.

Got an awesome job! I start January 3rd and I'm really looking forward to it!
Picture me jumping up and down. :)
Thanksgiving with the family
It was my finest gastronomic creation to date.

Ran a 5k
Look at my beautiful sister and awesome dad!

Jennifer's Birthday


Went to prison

Moved to my own apartment! It's huge, but I miss my sister as a roomie!

 Christmas!

Looking at my list I feel like neither it nor my pictures even begin to cover the sheer, nearly heart bursting joy as well as the triumph in the obstacles overcome.

What I couldn't document in a simple list:
Warm conversations among friends
Late night coffee/tea dates with best friends
Countless hugs and kisses
Belly laughs
Wonderful songs
Delicious shared meals
Love

Here's to 2010 and here's to the New Year!
What was your favorite 2010 moment?
