in february, i wrote chapter three of our story--including a video!--and it felt good. lindsey turned eight and got a taylor swift cd and freaked out, and i wrote chapter four, the final chapter of our story. phew!
in april, gracie turned one (despite how many times i diagnosed her with something that would kill her), william turned ten, and i took some spring pictures of beautiful boston. then nathaniel turned seventeen (between the end of march and the middle of april, there are three hunt children birthdays. all that this demonstrates is that steve is professor, with summers off, at peak-libido in the summer months).
in may, nathaniel went to prom, husband edited a book, and i saw lots of good friends at graduation. we also had a summer feast because it reached 90 degrees in MAY in massachusetts (massachusetts got major points in my book with this weather).
in june, and not without your help, i started planning our trip to italy, went camping with the family and my mom and dad in ricketts glen, and took some pictures of my sister with her growing baby-in-the-belly.
in july we went to italy. i could go on and on about this but i won't. just suffice it to say that it was a trip from heaven for both of us. perfection in every single way. we loved it. we went to orvieto, florence, cinque terre, rome, and positano and had a blast stuffing our faces, drinking wine, taking pictures, talking, and loving. we can't wait to go back.lake winnipesaukee with my family. in august, we had dear friends from minnesota stay, we went sailing, and the blog turned one year old! we saw the blue angels and ate ice cream on possibly the hottest day ever.
our summer was certainly grand. and onto the school year! we went to my friend's fabulous wedding, my nephew quinn was born!!!, we decorated for halloween, and husband worked and worked and worked all while on sabbatical. in october, fall started to creep in too and we went and picked pumpkins and ate apple cider donuts. i did my first fashion post--a sad attempt, really--and we celebrated halloween.
in november, lindsey got glasses, i celebrated my birthday, jordan's birthday, and i started thankful lists. i professed that i am a bad mom (but so did you guys!), and i posted some family pictures on the blog.
in december, i rolled out favorite things, and wrote a post about faith (i think it won't be the last because it opened up some awesome conversation). we celebrated an anniversary and christmas. and finally, are currently celebrating a second christmas with steve's parents who've ventured out from colorado. complete with a trip to our favorite family restaurant.
i don't know about you, but i'm looking forward to 2011. here's to a 2010 that was full of laughter, good health, god's grace, and a lot of love. and a 2011 that brings more of the same... but with some new adventures. cheers to that!
