farewell to twenty ten

There is no doubt that 2010 was the greatest year of my life thus far.

I experienced life in abundance- while strengthening relationships, taking risks, learning about what it means to be a follower of Christ, growing immensely as a teacher, exploring the world, and loving all of the fabulous people in my life.

Thank you to all of you who have helped make 2010 incredibly memorable and meaningful.

Some highlights...

  • Teaching! All of my different teaching experiences this year were amazing. I found out what it's really like to form close relationships with a particular group of students, and how significant building a community can be when it comes to teaching/learning. My students make me smile and laugh every day-- what a blessing.
  • South Africa. The most life and joy that could possibly be fit into six short weeks. From jumping off of bridges to baking pizza with our host family to giving and receiving love from my students to dancing the Sokkie... every moment was amazing.

  • Running- something I have never enjoyed or pursued until this year... A challenging new hobby that I somehow love and hate at the same time. I ran two 5k races and improved greatly!

  • Morris. You know how I feel about my beautiful home. So much love.

  • Graduation! With my brilliant roommate Coley.

  • A celebratory New Year's Eve spent with my best friends.

The year is now over, and a lot is changing. I'm sure that 2011 will have its fair share of sweetness, but for now I am content with rejoicing in the blessings of the past year. It's been one amazing ride.
