2010 In Review

Happy New Year’s Eve! I will be honest…Today feels like any other day. We aren’t big partiers so New Year’s Eve is usually pretty boring around here. It’s been raining on and off all day, so there will probably be a lot of unhappy drunk people in New Orleans tonight.

When I did a post on my one year blogiversary, I pretty much covered all of the big events that happened this year. So, as to not bore you with the same thing all over again, I thought I would just list a few of the more popular posts based on page views and comments. So, in no particular order, here ya go!

Disney Half Marathon 2010 

Blogging Tips

The Birth Control Pill Debate

Mardi Gras RnR Race Recap

Best Husband Ever Take Two

As I think back on this year, I can honestly say it has been one of the hardest, if not the hardest year of my life. Some GREAT things happened, like I took up blogging and ran 4 half marathons and a few 5k’s. I also started training for my first full marathon. Some not so great things happened, too…Like Bobby’s dad passing away this summer, making the decision to close up Bobby’s law firm and move 3 hours away so Bobby could take a new job, as well as dealing with some very very tough personal things I have yet to share about on the blog. (No, I am not pregnant, and yes, we are both healthy.)

We are also still trying to sell two homes and build another while I am living an hour and a half from my husband at my parents house. We have laughed, we have cried, we have faced a lot together this year, and I can honestly say I am more than ready to close the door on 2010 and step into a brighter 2011. I do not wish anything away that has happened to me, I firmly believe there is a reason for everything and I try to look at my trials as a learning experience. God has taught me a lot this year, and it hasn’t always been the easy way, but I can be hard headed like that. Smile 

With that, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my blog and post comments this year. I love reading and responding to readers, you are truly an inspiration and part of why I do what I do!

So, with that, I will wave goodbye to 2010 and, smile heading into the future. I can’t wait to see what is in store!

Cheers to a happy and healthy 2011!!

  1. I just read your Disney recap! Super inspiring, especially since I’ll be at the half-marathon start line next week!!! Ahhh!!!

    You have such a positive attitude! 2011 has good things in store for you! :)

  2. Happy new year, Heather! Here’s to 2011!

  3. We aren’t big drinkers either but may enjoy a glass of wine tonite at home while we watch fireworks. I’m scared to go out on NYE…crazy drivers everywhere!
    Sounds like you have had a challenging but good year with good friends, family and husband who love you. God never gives us more than we can handle. Thanks for sharing your life with us on this blog!
    My 2010 has definitely had it’s ups and downs. We moved to a great city for my hubs job. I’ve met new friends and live in paradise (Naples FL). But in doing so I had to quit my job at Legal Aid (I’m an atty too) which I loved and I miss my friends. My family has had some struggles too. But we are all happy and healthy going into a new year!

    Hope you have a Haptastic New Year! Sorry to ramble :)

    wait sell TWO homes? Did I miss a post or something??

    • our house in Madison, Bobby’s dad’s house in Madison. Oh ya, it took us 3 months of going over there multiple times a week to clean it out. that was fun! I made my parents promise they will get rid of all of their crap before they get old, because I refuse to clean it all out one day when they pass away! It stinks!

  5. Hope you guys had a great New Year, Heather! Here’s hoping that 2011 is amazing! See you next week!

  6. I hope 2011 is even better for you! At least you’re kicking it off with a bang! What better way than to run your first marathon? :)

  7. what a big, eventful year! hope that life settles into a good rhythm for you in 2011!

  8. Sounds like you handled a challenging 2010 with class. Resting in God’s plan is a definite plus, Happy New Year!

  9. Great picture! Happy 2011!

Mentioned elsewhere:

  1. […] It is a bit overwhelming for me to think of things in terms of an entire year. So many big (and little) things happened this year in my life. Just going back through my posts from this past year has had me laughing and crying all at the same time. Then I re-read my 2010 recap. Whew. 2010 was a particularly tough year, you can check out it’s recap as well. […]
