reflections on 2010

as 2010 comes to a close, i've had some time to reflect on all that has happened this year.
my life has changed in so many ways, and i have continued to progress and learn.
although i feel so young and immature in many ways,
i really feel like i have learned a lot about life, love, friendship, and myself.
so here's to 2010: a year of change.
i'm happy that i've been able to share the ups and downs with the people who stumble upon our blog.
and i'm excited to share our 2011 with you. 
this will be my last post of 2010 (it's long enough to last through all of 2011), and i hope you enjoy the pictures that sum up my life (chronologically) of the past year.
May this new year bring you happiness and joy.
