Wasn't 2010 supposed to be like....the future? I mean, like hover-crafts and life like
As I reminisce about the last 10 years of my life, it seems like just that...an entire lifetime. The year 2000 was the year life began - High School. A girls dream. Right? I sure thought so. I had some GREAT friends, and some not so great friends.
Some that have lasted the last 10 years, and others haven't.
More specifically, I want to focus on the last year. 2009. What a year. If I got to live my fantasy year, it probably couldn't have been any better in my imagination.
Life with Luke makes me feel complete. I know that is ENTIRELY cliche, but it's true. He is my best bud and makes me look at life with a whole new meaning. I notice so many other things in my day-to-day life that used to just slide by...everything from the wonder of the light switch to the extra crumbs on the ground. (No matter how many times I vacuum and sweep - he always finds them.)
Cory started the crazy (and never ending) adventure of school...again. I just keep telling myself that 10 years from now it will all be worth it. It sure better be! I am enjoying the journey through life with him and am so grateful to have such a patient, hard-working man by my side.
My sister moved in with us about 6 months ago...best. day. ever. She is my best friend and the person I rely on for just about everything. Whether it be her time, her car, or her mascara - she is always there for me. When I think back to 5 or 6 years ago...we HATED each other. And I mean HATED. My mom used to always say it was just because we are so alike that we couldn't get along....I now totally agree.
I am so grateful for the friendships that have been rekindled this year....3 people in particular - hopefully you know who you are without me mentioning your names. My relationships with all three of these people have not always been pretty, but I definitely think they are now. Through time, growing up, marriage and children (come on megan...it's time to join that club) I have been able to see all three of these girls grow into beautiful strong women. I look up to you all and am so grateful for your friendship.
I am so grateful for the continued relationships (rather than rekindled) of the last year. I have been really lucky to have such great people and role models in my life. These girls/women (I wish there was an in -between word) have been my support and encouragement through any decision or difficulty I may have experienced. I am so lucky to have friends that I can talk to about anything (even though it's mostly husbands and babies) and they are willing to listen and give advice when needed.
2009 was a great year for me. I hope it was just as great for all of you.
