2010: A Year in Review

It appears that 2010 didn’t start out in the stellar way I remember. My son used profanity for the first time,  and I totally embarrassed myself at the grocery store. Oh. And there were some serious heavy rain in these parts.  These I remember!  Someone must have been looking out for me, because there is no other way to explain what could have been a pretty hairy situation.

February found me looking at my family and realizing that my breath literally catches when I think about how lucky I am.

I also wrote a playdate do’s and don’ts guide. Helpful? I’m not sure.

March was the month for punctures. Jacob fell and injured his eye, and then turned around and punctured my chaise lounge.  I shared a few HTML tips, here.

April was monumental because I turned 35.  Enough said.

May left me with the realization that my children are growning up way too quickly. Here’s proof.

June found me giving parental advice. The kind that no one really does….

In July we went beach camping and it became official that ALL of my children can swim.

August found me in Utah with the kids:  fishing, and visiting a dairy.

In September I made some changes, including giving Wordful Wednesday away for awhile.

October found me not blogging much, but a blog post of note was about reading as a family.

November and December found me throwing a BIG birthday party and teaching my children about service.

2010 was a good year.  Thank goodness I have a few blog posts to prove it.  :)

    I love this wrap up. The only thing missing in 2010 was the two of us meeting!!

    I remember the play date post because it was right at the time that I was debating back and forth to allow Piper to go on her first one :) Since I have let her have a sleep over at that same mama’s house *gasp* I love reading through your year again with you because it brings back those memories. I think that all bloggers who blog regularly about personal things should go back and make a post about their year. You forget certain things and after looking back you realize that it wasn’t as bad as you thought :) Happy Happy New Year Angie!

      I’m so awful at fixing my hair! I want to try all of these but I will never have the meantl bandwidth. When you perfect these please share a detailed tutorial! If I had long hair I’d definitely be trying a side fishtail braid.

    Aw, you obviously had a fantastic year – and I love that about blogging, that it’s always there to look back on!

    It must have taken forever to find all those posts. I’m glad you had a great year. 2009 for me was horrible, 2010 tolerable (ish) so 2011 better rock because we all know everyone’s going to tweak when 2012 hits.

    I love these year-in-review posts. They’re such a clever way to highlight the past year to your readers, but they also let you remember all the high points as well!

    That photo of Utah is gorgeous!

      Oh thank you for sharing this! Not only are the eneveopls cool (who wouldn’t feel great receiving something in one of these!) – but, it makes me think about other things that an Envelope could say (even if it was inside the actual posting package). Way to make you feel your recipient feel special!

    Sounds like a pretty good year to me!!

    I think your parenting advice from 2010 was the best. I remember that posting.

    I also remember something you said a couple years back about reading. You said that you don’t always enjoy listening to your kids read. I wasn’t sure what you meant but since my little one has started to do some reading on his own, I know what you mean now. At first it was charming, now it’s kind of time consuming. But I remember when you said that I was impressed by your honesty.

    I hope 2011 brings more great memories with your family and also some great postings to go along with it.

    Good post. I remember all those posts too. My memory must not be as bad as I think.

    A year in review is a good idea. I doubt I’ll get around to it though…

  12. 14

    Love this summary of the year! :-) It was a good year!

  13. 15

    It was a great year! Here’s to a fabulous 2011! Happy New Year Angie. :)

  14. 16

    Seriously, how did anyone ever remember what happened in years past before blogs??

  15. 17

    and i’m so glad i knew you in 2010 and KNOW you in 2011 angie!
