but wait...
you didn't think I would move on to 2010 without saying good-bye did you?!
I believe that you should measure a year in progress. 2009 was progress. No victories, no defeats, just a journey that has gotten me to here. Here isn't where I want to be but it is closer to where I am going. With that, I deem 2009 as a successful year.
Without 2009
I would not have found myself in my thriving relationship with David. Or have Kings of Leon on my ipod. I would not have seen Alan Jackson live on Lake Martin. Or worn skinny belts or embraced skinny jeans for that matter. I could have not tried to give up caffeine, which was the epic failure of 2009. I am caffeine dependant, this I know now and embrace. Maybe I could have done without that dress purchase from Walmart that still has the tags. Speaking of Walmart, I believe Walmart only saw me five times this year. A victory, I'd say. Fleur De Lis' have taken over my life; which I refuse to even image it is a bad thing.
Tiger Stadium and I met for the first time. And not rain, nor cold, nor headache, could come in the way.
The Saints have had quite the year, haven't they? And there too, I found myself for the first time this year.
Football, though I do not love you after 2009, I do appreciate you much more. 2009 brought the worse hair color of my life, orange. I do appreciate my dark brown hair much more, so we will count that as another small battle won. 2009, we may have more memories is there was a camera, but now there is a camera and that too is a lesson learned on our journey. It may be sad to see the year I turned 23 go, but only because it brings me one more year closer to 25.
Speaking of turning 23, a celebrity I did meet. And the Travelocity Gnome continues to travel with me.
2009, I wave good-bye. When I think back on you in the years ahead of me, I will feel bittersweet. A journey I learned and grew from, but a journey I am glad is over.

Fare well my friend. With this I will leave you with fond memories and a smile. I'll be seeing you.


Dear 2010,

With a camera, a smile, a plan, and love I meet you. Let's make this the year of love and laugher. A year of brag worthy accomplishments, of lots and lots of pictures, of pretty clothes, of savings, fr prayer, and of memories worth keeping.

With love,
