I've always seen the beginning of a new year as the perfect time to pause for a moment, think about everything I did during the past year, evaluate how I'm doing spiritually and set some goals for the coming year.  I usually read through the journal I've kept through the year, to remember the highlights, and the struggles.  It helps me to see the ways I've grown, and the areas I need to work on.
 
 
A few of my goals for the year 2010 are:
  • Learn to love others as Christ loves me - unconditionally, no matter what they do.
  • Make more time to work on web and graphic design - that kind of got put on the back burner this year, unfortunately.
  • Read more=)
  • Have several costume events, including a Victorian lawn party this summer.
  • Be more diligent to keep up on the laundry, dishes, and other household chores.
  • Ride Bob at least 3 times a week
  • Cultivate a servant's heart
  • Plant a garden and remember to water it;)
  • Finish my rock garden
  • Rely more fully on God for my strength in every situation, big or small.
  • Practice my mandolin more often.
  • Get to bed earlier and get up earlier
  • Finish reading through the Old Testament - one of my goals last year was to read through the OT in a year, but I got hung up on Leviticus:p  I'm in 1 Chronicles now:)
Rather than tell you what the highlights of my year have been, I'd like to share a few (ha ha - yeah, right;) pictures from what has been a very eventful year...
 
I got contacts - wow, I forgot about that:)  If you've never had to wear glasses, then you have no idea how nice it is not to have to wear them!
 
Family Music Night - the first time I sang in front of an audience.  BIG milestone!  As Kellie could tell you, I was just sure I was going to die...;)
 
Got a really nice work table from Goodwill - believe me, this was a major highlight.  I don't know how I got along without a work table before.
 
I turned 20=) 
 
My beloved serger:)
 
Played and sang at the Old Time Fiddlers.
 
I think this is my absolute favorite picture from the entire year...except for a few really funny ones that I can't show you because the person(s) in them would probably be really upset with me;D
