2010: Looking Back


These are some of my favorite pictures from this past year. 2009 was tough. Not that there was nothing good about it. When I really look back at several things, I see that there was a lot that was good about it. Nevertheless, I was overwhelmingly happy to see 2009 end.

2010 was different. Beautifully different! I'm even feeling a bit nostalgic. I guess that's why I'm doing a year end retrospective of sorts. But I'm feeling even better about 2011. 2011 is going to be awesome!

To begin this year of complete and total awesomeness, I'm taking some Christmas money and getting a mani/pedi. Since my own personal economy went south with the rest of the world's, my last mani/pedi was years ago. And sadly, the spa that I used to go to went out of business. Sign of the times. So today I booked an appointment at a new place and look forward to starting the year off right!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

*Updated 5/28/11* I've removed links and the name of the new spa that I went to for a mani/pedi. Since a month after the service, I've had problems with my foot that I think may relate to the pedicure. I can no longer recommend this spa.

Love the way you started the new year off! Mani-pedi's are the best. It reminds me that it's been a while for me too...might need to fix that!

All the best to you in 2011!

Happy New Year Lisa...it has been awhile but I wanted you to know we loved the apple/banana/yogurt cake...enjoy your mani-pedi de-stresser...I'm still carrying around a gift certificate from one of my students for a manicure...hoping to use it one day when my hands are out of markers, play dough, paint and glue...if you know anyone who is using a balance ball chair let me know...I need to de-stress when sitting at my computer!

My 2010 was horrible, awful, and every other bad adjective you can think of. I was so happy to see it end and I hope the door did kick it on its way out. So it gives me hope to know you had a similar year in 2009 and then describe the next year as being beautiful. Perhaps one day I can even, like you, look back on my horrible year and see lots of good in it. Go 2011!

Lisa said...

s - Happy New Year! It's strange how a little distance can change our perspective. I hope you have the most awesome 2011 and in time can see some beauty in 2010.

Enjoy the mani/pedi! It's always nice to let yourself be pampered. My choice is a massage once in a while. Aaaaahhhhh.

Lisa said...

suldog - Happy New Year! A massage is a great treat too. I'd do all three if I could!

Esme said...
