want proof? ok. (sorry if this is a little cryptic. but at least I included lots of never-before blogged pictures)
January 1 brought a cross-country flight for the adventure of a lifetime. It was living the life of an intern, having State of the Union viewing parties, riding the metro and crashing the sample table at Trader Joes. It was snow and photo shoots and an impromptu trip to New York. It was Congressmen visits and midnight runs to Kramers and the beginnings of the BC/DC fam and the hoedown throwdown.
snow-mageddon and Valley Forge and my birthday. We looked at historically inaccurate huts and whitewashing. It was a group trip to New York where we rocked a Times Square billboard and froze in Brooklyn. It was Olympics viewing nights and crazy tour guides.
protests and getting on Fox News. It was the Supreme Court and feeling like a "local". It was Barlow fashion shows and visiting art galleries.
Easter, a Canadian-themed prom and cherry blossoms. It brought getting moshed at Georgetown concerts and late nights reminiscing and writing papers and it brought home. It was taking care of my dying Grandma and learning I can do hard things. It was going back to Provo and transitioning back to a normal student.
loving springtime. It was when I tried crafting, running, and avoiding bird poop.
Hunger Games and jeep rides and exploring new places. It was back home for real, tough but great family time and a lot of rest.
goodbye to Grandma, which was made better with lots of family time. It was summer camp and cousin weddings and sisters in town and nights at mom's garden. It was weekend expeditions and welcoming missionaries home.
goal setting, mountain hiking and bike trips. It was back to school, back to work and moving into a new apartment. It was new roommates and the start of my senior year.
September was transitioning to a Mac, getting used to school, football and going to the fair. It was loving life and getting ready for graduation. It was the most beautiful autumn and enjoying warm days outside.returning to my beloved DC to win some big PR awards. It was a parents visit for General Conference. It was balancing school and fun, old friends and new, and just being happy. It was a missionary invasion at the temple, old roommate Sundays, and walks around Provo. It was murder mysteries and costume bowling.
election day and being in over my head, but loving politics. It was a boyfriend. It was a balancing act and late nights. It was a new state and meeting the family and long road trips. It was an abandoned airport and gaining driving confidence.
Thanks for the emotions, excitement and thrills, 2010. It certainly was a year to remember, and a fabulous one at that. Here's to an even greater 2011.
