I find that most people like to look back on the year & reflect on what they've done, how they've grown, etc. I, however, don't usually do that, mainly because of my (lack of) memory; I can't remember dates or years for the life of me. It blows my mind when people says things like, "I had that same haircut back in the summer of 2003," or "my favorite tv episode was in the beginning of season four." in my head, time all just blends together. and I know that sounds like a bad thing, but for me, I suppose it's just about living in the present & being in the moment. trying not to focus on mistakes in the past or fret too much about the unknowns in the future. (or, maybe that's just my excuse for having a bad date-memory.)

last year I made a list of some of the highlights of 2009. I thought I'd do the same for 2010 (thank goodness for my calendar or else I'd never remember what year anything happened).

- we watched bobby bowden coach his last football game ever at the gator bowl.
- robert & I started hitchcock movie nights.
- I spent a whirlwind of a weekend in la visiting robert while he was there for work.
- my baby sister turned 25 & we threw her a party.
- robert made me the coolest piece of art ever for my birthday.
- we celebrated our 4th anniversary with a trip to puerto rico
- so many sweet babies were born (seen here & here).
- we went to maine to visit some great friends & explored new england with them.
- I started a new job after 6+ years at the same ad agency.
- I visited my good friend kristin in nyc & then we took a bus down to dc for a visit.
- you + me blog was started exactly 1 year & 168 posts ago.

thanks for reading & here's to a healthy 2011.
