it was as some of you recall "WEDDING YEAR" in our house last year. 2010 was such and OUTSTANDING year that I do not want to see it go. I loved every moment of last year.

January: I made the BIG MOVE!!! Yes Bob and I moved in with Chris and Winston! Chris finally booked our wonderful Honeymoon to the Bahamas. We began planning our Encore Celebration (aka back home party)....oh and we had 5 Months till the WEDDING!
February: The SNOW STORM of our time hit. We were covered with oh 12 inches of snow, and had NO POWER for 3 days! Thus allowing for tons of playing in the snow and snuggling to be warm. We began our marriage mentoring, which we loved. To wrap up February my sweet nephew B was baptized!
March: Chris and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary of dating! Chris had his annual awards banquet for AXA, this year in Austin.

What an amazing year it has been...I love 2010 for many reasons but most of all I love that it brought 2 families tougher. This year Chris and I got to spend more time with our family, due to wedding festivities. I love that our families supported us so much this year. We are so blessed! I know that 2011 will be a wonderful year too, but 2010 will always be the year I love most!
