A Wonderful Year!

How wonderful is it to be able to look back on a year and be able to say how truly great it was? I know just how lucky we are and I am so thankful for all of the many blessings that we have. When I was a little girl, I always dreamed of what I wanted my life to be like when I "grew up". I think most children dream about being famous or in some powerful role of some sort, having an endless amount of money to buy everything they desire, etc. I know I always wanted to be a doctor, lawyer, and a model...yes, all 3. Well, my lack of math skills quickly diminished any hope of me in the medical field, my complete hatred for school tossed any additional higher ed out of the door (for now), and well a model??...I'm 5'2 and am no Heidi Klum! But the one thing that I always dreamed about and always wished for (yes, on birthdays, stars, fountains, you name it...anywhere I could make a wish) was to be happy. Well, the billions of wishes I made for happiness for the past 20 or so years have finally started coming true...starting 3 years ago. My world changed when I met Jason and things have just continued to get better and better. I could have never have dreamed OR wished for a greater happiness that I have now. And I truly have a profound appreciation for the blessing of happiness that I/we have :)

SO! A few (certainly not all) happy highlights from the past year...

Feb. 28th...Jason's 30th Birthday! A great 30th Birthday trip to Cancun with Mom and Dad!
April 10th...The Day of a Big Decision! The night of my sister and Scooter's shower, we decided that we would try to start a family!

May 15th...Before leaving for Atlanta for a bachelorette party, I thought it would be wise to take a pregnancy test and well, it was a very good decision! I think I took 3 or 4! (warning: this picture may be TMI, so just pass it on by if so!) We were so blessed to be given our baby so soon after trying for a little one...our Hudson is one special little baby boy!
This picture is from June :)
May 28th...The most beautiful baby girl was born! Our sweet niece, Landry is just the most perfect child in the world and it has been a joy to watch her grow!

August 23rd
...We found out our angel was a boy!

August 29th
...Our 1 Year Anniversary! I am so blessed to have my sweet and perfect husband!

Sept. 24th-28th...
Anniversary/Babymoon Trip to NYC

Oct. 24th
...Joined South Highland Presbyterian

These are just a few "big things" from 2010, certainly not everything. Jason continues to work so very hard and things are going really well for him with the many things/projects he has going on. I am so proud of him and just really admire his drive and ambition...he really honestly excels at everything he does and is so deserving of all of the good fortunes that come and will come his way. His success has allowed for me to stay home with our son, which we are so thankful for. 2010 was a great year and we can't wait to see what 2011 brings! I am so thankful for every ounce of happiness that I/we have and am so thankful that I can share it all with my best friend.

Happy New Year Everyone!
Love,
J&E
