bring it on 2011!

2010 was an exciting year for us. Lots of changes, lots of trials, lots of happiness, lots of growing, lots of everything! We are looking forward to this new year and hope to conquer it with pride!

We had lots of interesting things happen and go on this past year. For the first time, we actually struggled financially for a bit. We hate being poor. But, thats the life when your in school right? We only have one car still, and that's been a struggle getting to where we need to be. We went swimming a lot this summer. Loved that. Kevin slaved away at work and at school- where I stayed home and crafted or watched my favorite shows- one tree hill, life unexpected, and the bachelor. we made new friends, i lost a friend, we laughed together, cried together, and struggled together. We also progressed together, loved eachother, and spend as much time together as we could. I look back on this last year and think- wow. Its been a hard year. I feel like I went through some of the most difficult emotional things I could have gone through in my life thus far. But, this year, I plan on CONQUERING IT!!! Life is about growing and learning and I do feel like this last year, its been all about that. So, i'ma kick 2010 in the butt. glad I don't have to repeat it. HA!
