Year End Reflections

As we close in on the final few hours of 2010, I'm in a rather contemplative mood. It's been a big year- for almost everyone I know, too. As I look back on the past 12 months, I can definitely say that this year will probably mart the biggest turning point in my life: I started a career and got married. Pretty hard to top, huh?

Though in my reflections, I've come to realize that while I am extremely thankful for the amazing job that I have, it's not quite what I want to do. Part of me says "go after what you want!", while the logical more rational side says "you have a good job, you wont be able to support the family without it, etc". The golden handcuffs as a wise cousin of mine once said. But I guess that's all part of growing up.

As I look forward into 2011, I'm pretty optimistic. We're moving closer to our hometown and also closer to friends that we left behind 3 years ago when we moved. Most of the reason I'm excited to move is because of how small this place is. Don't get me wrong, I love being 4 houses down from the beach, but when the IHOP closes at 9pm, you know it's too small.

So here's to 2011, may it bring good times with great friends. :)
