a new year

I absolutely cannot believe how fast 2009 went by.  It seems crazy to think that I have to start writing 2010 at the end of the date. 

I’ve heard this quote lately and totally agree with it—“ the days are long, but the years are short.”  That pretty much sums up the last half of 2009 for me.  Many of my days would just drag by.  I wasn’t completely happy in certain areas of life, and that caused my days to seem like they lasted foreverrrr. 

But now, looking back I can’t believe that it’s been almost an entire year since Richard and Nicole got married.  Or that it’s been six months that we have lived in Texas.  Or that I have been 25 for 3 months already.  It’s just unbelievable.

When I started thinking about writing a post last night, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to write about.  I half expected myself to do a post like last year recapping the highlights of 2009.  Not that many exciting things took place over the year though.  Then I thought about writing a post about my resolution for 2010.  But I just really don’t have just one specific thing.

I want to work on being a better wife and work on my relationship with the Lord and work on losing some of my “happily married” weight.  I want to work on my photography and work on becoming a better cook.  I want to work on getting pregnant (wayyyy later in the year… don’t get excited! ha!).  I want to be more positive in my outlook on life and make more long-lasting friendships.  I want to develop a better self-esteem and spend more time doing things that make me happy.

Looking at my list of “goals” makes me really want to just slow down.  I want to enjoy the year of 2010.  I don’t want to rush through it.  I want to make fun and loving memories with all of the people that I care about.  I don’t want to take anyone or any of our time together for granted.
