The Year in Review & Bed Beard

Happy New Year everyone! Looking back on 2010, I can't help but feel truly blessed for what a great year it's been.  Michael and I had our share of disappointments, but overall, 2010 was very good to us. We took our 3 week honeymoon trip to Thailand and celebrated our first wedding anniversary.  We did a 3,200 mile road trip through the Midwest, and also traveled to France, Croatia and Germany.  Some very dear friends tied the knot and even more got engaged.  We spent a week with my entire extended family in the Outer Banks.  Our first nephew was born and several other friends brought new people into this world.  We went to 8 Phish shows together in 5 different states.  We celebrated my Golden birthday with 20 close friends in the Russian River and finally fit in a camping trip to Gualala Point.  And last but not least, I took a 7 month hiatus from work and finally started this blog, which had been a goal of mine for a long time. Yes, we are truly lucky indeed and I can't wait to see what 2011 holds in store for us.  We already have 6 weddings on the books and we are continuing to work towards accomplishing the goals of our Life Plan.  If you couldn't tell by all the adventures we had this year, I strongly believe in the mantra "no day but today." Nothing else is promised to you, so make sure to live everyday to the fullest! On that note,  I will leave you with the Final Bed Beard Picture of 2010.  This is an epic Bed Beard and one of my faves, so I hope it brings a laugh for you as we close out the year.

I hope that everyone has a fun night and stays safe.  See you next year!
