The End of an Era

Today is the end of the first decade of the 21st century, and I'm celebrating!
There's so much to be grateful for this decade [a few notable highlights]...

  • Marrying the best man in the world for me
  • Graduating from college with an incredible education
  • Working at two of the best churches in America who've allowed me to do what I love most with people I love dearly
  • Moving to CA...I was made for this place!!!
  • Buying our first home and making it truly ours little by little
  • Traveling the world, especially Africa
  • Walking with some of the best women in the world whom I love with my whole heart
  • And of course...Beginning our adoption journey!!!!!!!

Obviously, this decade has been filled with challenges, raw pain, and heartache [see previous postings :)], but today I choose to celebrate the goodness of the 21st century's first decade.

Happy New Year!

P.S. Today is my 100th post!!!! Thanks to those of you who've read every single one [probably just my parents and maybe Brian]. And thanks to you who've joined along the way. I'm amazed that this blog has been read over 8000 times in the past 9 months. I hope it's been helpful, humorous, and healing...
