Through the darkness, we can still see stars..

(so I really don't entirely think this.. but thought it was funny)

2010..what a year! Definately a year of change for my family and definately for me. If you follow my blog, you know a lot of what has gone on. Nothing too exciting really.. at least for my readers. But for me, it's been bitter sweet.

Here's a highlight in no particular order (okay like really out of order):
*Jan 2010 started a path to become healthy
*met my friend Kristy
*Jon lost 50lbs
*I lost 15, gained it all back and lost 25 (and then gained back 5..dang christmas)
*moved out of that horrible apartment into a house
*sold our house in GA after over a year
*lost a lot of our belongings in the Nashville flood
*trained for many months with Kristy for a half marathon
*completed 2 half marathons, 2 5k's and 1 10k
*helped do social media for the South Nash Dash
*went on a cruise to the Bahamas
*took kids to Universal Studios
*went to Nauvoo with our friends
*got my nose pierced
*made a lot of stupid choices that hurt people I love the most
*questioned my faith and then questioned some more
*fell in love more with my family
*had a miscarriage
*still after almost 4yrs, have not been able to add on to our family
*became a stay home mom without kids being at home
*got more into scrapping and card making
*saw Garth Brooks... 3 times!!!

What a year! Regardless of the bad, overall, it was definately life changing. I wouldn't change my accomplishments for anything. Without the encouragement of my family, my bestfriend and her family, I don't think I could have done it! I am truely blessed by the examples of those around me. I saw stars...through all the storms and darkness, there were stars.
And now in 2011, I want to learn how to shine on my own so I can add my light to my stars.
I have a lot of goals but now it's time to sit down and actually write them and figure out what I can do to make 2011 even more successful!

I'm so sorry to read about your miscarriage. I can't even imagine how painful and devastating that would be. I'm really so sorry!! Awesome, though about all the races you've done. Here's to 2011!
