Well it's a new decade. This new year was kind of hard to start since it will be the farewell to my 20s and on to my 30s. Yikes! It seems like it was just 2000 so then thinking of that I think then it will be a blink and I'll be 40 which is hard to swallow since I'm still having a hard time with turning 30 next month.

Anyway . . . I got an external hard drive for my computer so right now I'm in the process of removing all photos so just getting these photos together took forever. I've put together some highlights from the last decade. I think it was my visiting teacher who was trying to console me about turning 30. I was telling her that I thought people that were 30 were so established and seemed to have everything together. She told me that she thinks your 20s is when you do the most things out of any decade of your life. Well looking back at it I believe she is right.

Got married (these were scanned in so no my cheeks weren't that red in the original photo or maybe I was just a blushing bride)

Went to Europe for the second time but this time Tad met me half way through the tour. I love this photo even though it's not the best because it was a photo I didn't know we'd give to Tad's Grandma who is no longer with us.

Bought a house.
Tad also went to Disneyland for the first time.

Couldn't find any pictures from this year but I'm sure we did lots of yard work around the house. Make something up for this year.
Tad started working at Park City Mountain Resort.

Went on a family vacation to Seattle, Vashon Island and Victoria. I love the Pacific Northwest and would love to live there some day.

Went on vacation with the Noices to San Francisco. This vacation was seriously so much fun, I still think about it all the time. It was fun to go with someone else because we did a lot of things we would have never done if it was just Tad and I.

Wow! This was a huge year. What didn't happen this year? Some good and some bad. Well three that I'll mention are I graduated from the University of Utah.
Survived pregnancy. I believe that is truly an accomplishment because I don't enjoy it at all.
Had Baby Logan.

Had to get our dead trees removed. I know kind of a weird highlight but I figure it was more than any vacation we've taken or giving birth to a baby (okay not less than a semester at the U though) so I had to include it. I actually like them being gone because I would lose so much sleep whenever there was a storm because they were so huge I just knew they were going to crash through our house.
Also I should mention that while reviewing pictures I noticed that my photography improved by leaps and bounds this year. So I guess that would also be a highlight.
Went to Florida. This picture was the only one I could find that had the most amount of our group.
Also won a spot to Spark and it was amazing.
Each year Ali Edwards encourages you to pick a word for the year that you will focus on. I've never done this but this year the word just seemed to come to me. If you want to learn more about her 'one little word' you can go here. The word I've chosen is change. I feel like there are going to be lots of changes this year. Some of those changes are ones I need to make, some I don't believe I know about yet. So the word just came to me and I think it will help me be prepared for whatever comes our way in 2010.
Also I've written down all my goals for 2010 and I've decided to share them as I accomplish them. I think 2010 will be a great year.

Loved your blog Sabrina!!! 2010 should be a wonderful year for you. You turn 30, married 10 years, you spearheading a 1st camping FFF in the summer. I'm looking forward to your awesome year!

Sabrina you look so young in your wedding picture. The past 10 years have just flown by so fast. Hopefully the event of turning 30 will come & go without too much pain!!

Did you get married at 13? Seriously you look like a baby in that picture! And speaking of babies, I love that picture of Logan. We need to get some cute ones of Emmett like that before he's too big!

This is such a great post. I'm thinking about copying you, but I don't want to scan in old that lame? It's crazy to think about what's happened in ten years!

You've accomplished a lot my dear. And on your birthday, call me, I'll mourn with you. I'm also dreading turning 30. At least we're all doing it together. :)
