Auld lang syne...

It's funny, the cycles of blog posts throughout the internet. There are the obligatory holiday posts, showing off decor and food while listing favorite things about the particular season. These are followed by the "favorite moments of the year" posts, which are then followed by New Year's Resolutions posts.

If I blogged more consistently and didn't feel such pressure to cram entire MONTHS into one freaking post, I might do that too.

But, since I don't post but once every great while, it's a little overwhelming to try and recap everything that's happened in the last 2 weeks, much less try and compile a list of my "favorite posts of 2010." The archives are there for ya, if you're that interested, I suppose.

2010 was a good year. I got married, which was awesome (partly because it was something I really thought I would never be interested in doing), we got a new niece, my brother was deployed and came home safely, and my epic love affair with wine continued on.

We also took a ton of vacations. We started the year in Jamaica, then went to Cancun twice, as well as California, Alabama (which doesn't SOUND like an awesome vacation locale, but trust me, it was a blast) and a bunch of weekend trips to Austin and Dallas. I feel so fortunate to be able to travel the way we do and 2011 has a whole bunch of new destinations in store for us.

To me, that's what makes a successful year - counting how many times we got out of the state or country. There are still so many places we want to see, and the more we get to travel, the happier I am.

Next year starts on Saturday (holy shit). I've got no resolutions to try and keep because I always break them almost immediately - if you don't and are able to keep them, what the hell is your secret?? We're going out to dinner tonight to celebrate the greatest day of Saul's life - he asked me to marry him one year ago tonight and I said yes, lucky sucker (bahahahaha!) - and then will spend tomorrow night celebrating the end of the decade with great friends at our house.

What are your New Year's Eve plans?

Hope 2011 brings you all much happiness and fun travels!! See you folks again in the new year.
