a look back.


Where did this year go? I can't believe we are seven days away from Thanksgiving! Every year flies by but this year has moved at warp speed. I was thinking about the months past while driving to work this morning and realized so many great things have happened this year.

In JANUARY...I made no resolutions and still managed to live my life more authentically. Not worrying as much about what others think, choosing to be happy as much as possible, etc.
In FEBRUARY...I celebrated my 28th birthday, started blogging and quickly realized I had not only found a new hobby but a new love.
In MARCH...I said goodbye to my dear friend Sandy who moved to London and celebrated my parents anniversary (which becomes more and more important each year)
In APRIL...I took Guy to Omaha for the first time to spend the weekend with my family, saw my beautiful friend Leslie get married, and celebrated Guy's and my two year anniversary.
In MAY...we celebrated Guy's 28th birthday.
In JUNE...my entire family came to visit for a week and Guy and I spent every weekend at the beach.
In JULY...Guy and I had the best 4th of July and visited two of my favorite people in NYC.
In AUGUST...I welcomed the wind down of summer..got excited for college football...and visited my brother and sister in law in DC
In SEPTEMBER...I did nothing. And loved every minute of it.
In OCTOBER...I rocked out at Austin City Limits and welcomed my nephew Max into the world
In NOVEMBER....I conquered a big moment in my career, am about to leave on a trip I've been waiting for 8th months for....and am going to celebrate Thanksgiving by stuffing myself to the brim.
In DECEMBER... ??????

2010 is going to have a lot to live up to!!!! How has 2009 been for you?

You have accomplished and done so much this year... wow! I am with you, the years seem to fly by much to quickly - and every year as we get older goes even faster than the year before!!

Cute post! I love the picture you used :-) Sounds like such a great year for you! I can't wait to do my Year-In-Review too. Blogging is such a neat way to look back and reflect on the year, so glad we all have it! Ooh, and you should add on your list that you opened your Etsy store too! Have a great day!

I've been thinking about how amazing 2009 has been too! I graduated from High School, directed a hour-long play, got into my first pick college, traveled to my favorite place in the world, Plymouth, MA and started college! It's been such a huge year.

I'm so glad your year has been wonderful! It's crazy to think it's 7 days to Thanksgiving. I've found that as we grow older, time just goes by way too fast.
