Farewell 2009, Welcome 2010

It's hard to believe a whole decade has past since the infamous Y2K fiasco. I admit that I haven't spent a lot of time reflecting on 2009, but it was a good year for our family. I hope that 2010 will bring more of the same. I did want to work on some things in 2009 and I went back and looked at those "goals." I did alright on many of them. On and off on others. One in particular I nailed because it can be quanitified...reading at least 2 books a month. I almost made it to an average of 3 a month. Not sure yet if I will make an acutal goal of that for next year, though.

Beginning tomorrow, January 1, 2010, I will "officially" open for business on my new venture, Rachel Cooke Photography. This is something that has tangibly been in the works for more than a year, but has been one of my dream to-do's for a lot longer than that. If you feel so inclined, you can follow my photography blog and become a fan of my facebook page. A big thanks to my parents, Casey, and my friends who have all helped me get this off the ground. Each one of you is truly a blessing to me.

And in 2010, Ethan will turn 2, Casey and I will celebrate 7 years of marriage (no itch yet!), I will turn 29 (in two days, actually) last year of my 20's...a great decade for me. I really had a lot of incredibly formative and life-changing experiences in my 20's and although I will not really be sad when I turn 30 at the beginning of 2011, I can say with confidence that I loved my 20's. I am loving my 20's. I still feel 22 or 23 most of the time. But, there is no reason to expect that my 30's won't bring something just as amazing. We shall see.

So, I am excited about this new year and what it will bring. But I just can't promise that I will be awake to usher it in when the clock strikes midnight tonight.

Happy ALMOST birthday! Want to go get some lunch next week and celebrate? I can even bring some over and we can eat (peacefully) while our kids nap! ;0)
