In The Words of the Byrds…
To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
Anyone who know me even just the littlest bit, or has read this blog even a few times, knows that 2010 has been a very big year for me. The biggest.
I am so grateful to so many people who helped me train, prepare and complete the Texas Water Safari. This race has changed my life forever. I won’t pontificate in detail the lasting effects but just know you will have plenty to read about when I finish the book in the new year.
On top of that…I have a gorgeous daughter whose star is shinning so bright these days. Plus I turned 40 in September. Not to mention….I got engaged and married! All before the close of 2010.
It’s going to be hard to top this year but before I turn turn turn the page on 2010, I thought I would do a photo flashback on what (so far) has been just about the best year of my life. And because to everything there is a season, I’ve selected a few top pics from spring, summer, fall and winter. Enjoy!
Little Chick’s first time in the Bahamas.
Our second trip to Springfest, where I really stepped up my hooping skills.
Needless to say, the Texas Water Safari was the highlight of my summer.
But I was able to make it out to Montana for some fishing:
Little Chick singing with Tim McGraw in Texas Stadium was pretty huge.
Getting engaged on my 40th birthday was over the top.
A break in wedding planning. We stole away to Montana for a fantastic fall fishing trip.
Another highlight of the fall was our November success in the MS marsh with redfish.
Needless to say our small family December wedding was sublime.
We spent our first married Christmas as a family in Nashville with Little Chick, my parents, my grandmother, aunt, uncle, cousins and dear friends. The snow started falling on Christmas Eve and Nashville enjoyed its first white Christmas in 17 years. Magical.
Happy New Year one and all. I am so grateful for each one of you who dials into the blog, reads my tales, leaves a comment. I promise there will be more antics in 2011 and I will share it all with you. In the meantime I hope everyone has a fantastic New Years Eve and that 2011 brings you as much happiness as this past year afforded me.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…..MERRY NEW YEAR!
