Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are, five days into 2011, 
and I'm still holding onto my 2010 {year in review} post...

Picasa Collage by {av} - click to see it bigger!
I could write about ten posts describing 2010, but I'll spare you ;) Though the pictures may be a bit jumbled, the photos in this collage capture some of the highlights of last year. They're in no particular order; each one just brought a smile to my face.

2010 was so much more than our "wedding year"...it was our first full year in the same city since 2006. Our April wedding was exactly what we hoped it would be, due in large part to my parents and a few {very} talented wedding vendors. {cv} and I survived both a flood {during which we lost power for two days the week before our wedding} and a volcanic eruption {which extended our European honeymoon by four days...no complaints!}. We like to joke that "come hell or high water", we've made it so far! 

Though I lost my grandmother in February of 2010, I gained some "new" family this year through {cv}. It doesn't make up for the loss, per se, but it eases the sadness ever so slightly. Last year, I also realized just what it meant to have true friends. I am beyond blessed to have this circle of people who are like the sisters {and brothers!} I never had. 

Like I said, I could go on...but I'll let the photos speak for themselves. 
Hope you all have a fantastic night! 
More tomorrow! xoxo {av}
