Happy New Year!

A new year has begun...hard to believe! 2010 was a tough year for my little family. My husband and I were apart for 5 months this year. That's a lot of absence. He missed our second wedding anniversary as well as our daughter's second birthday. However, this has been a big year for him! He's accomplished a lot! He went to and graduated boot camp. He completed pre-BUD/s as well as half of BUD/s (the rest remains to be seen). He survived hell week! That is a big accomplishment in itself!

2010 was a big year for me also. I broke through my two year struggle with depression. I started this blog, and became an avid runner. Avery and I went through a lot of changes together. We moved in with my mom when Justin left. We lived in Great Lakes for two months. We got to see the city of Chicago and play on the beaches of Lake Michigan! We also went for our first plane ride together (and second, and third)! We flew cross-country three times this year! I packed up all of our belongings, directed the movers, struggled through airports with heavy bags and a toddler, found my way around a huge new city, set up home in a new apartment. All on my own :) I moved away from my family for the first time in 2010 :( I am learning to live without them in a sense. I'm more independent than ever. My husband and I got our first place together in 2010. We "visited" our family for Christmas, that was a first. It was hard to leave them :(

2010 has been full of so many changes for my family! I will say, it has been a hard year. But also a rich one! I feel happy to close out 2010 and welcome 2011 with open arms. This too will be a year full of many firsts and changes. But how can it not be; as long as you're alive, things will change.
