a year of change.

last january started peacefully,
as paul & i spent a quiet day lounging
before i went back to a job i was less than enthused about.
in february, i worked on loving myself a little more each day
and we took an amazing trip to a magical group of islands.
march came and we celebrated our dating anniversary for the last time
(since now we have a wedding anniversary to celebrate).
i ended a friendship that wasn't healthy
and found out how devastating it could be as i tried to find closure.
april brought excited plans for summer
and may was a most amazing month which marked
the successful defence of paul's masters thesis
and the beginning of a beautiful marriage for my brother and his wife.
in june i reflected on the amazing women in my life
and reawakened my love for the smell of something baking.
i learned italian in july
and spent much needed time outside & with friends.
august brought our amazing first anniversary weekend,
and time spent in victoria saying goodbye to loved ones.
we welcomed a gorgeous new addition into our family,
took an amazing west coast roadtrip
and embarked on a crazy cross-country move to start a new life.
in september we met mortimer 
(the new love of our lives)
october was my first (successful!) attempt at a turkey dinner
and our first opportunity to get a little more acquainted with the big city.

i celebrated one of my best birthdays ever in november,
and promised that 26 is the year i'm going to do great things.
i cultivated my love for a local lamb farm
and enjoyed our first eastern snowfall.
december was a very busy month
of birthday adventures
and preparations for a visit to the west coast to see family & good friends.

2010 was a year of finding myself
as i grew more accustomed to
a lack of schoolwork
a new town
and a freedom to decide what i want to do with my life.

i feel like i've learned a lot about who i am,
and 2011 is going to be a year of action
as i pursue and hopefully begin to accomplish some of the things
i've been dreaming about for the past year.
i'm feeling very ambitious,
and tomorrow i'll post my intentions for 2011!
