We put away all of the Christmas decor tonight. I usually postpone it until after New Year's because it seems like such a waste to take it down so soon after planning for so long, but with our place on the market, the extra clutter was making me nervous. Plus, I'm really ready to move on to the new year. Cleaning up this year's Christmas marked the end of 2010. Bring on 2011.
I don't know that I have looked forward to a new year like I am this coming year. 2010 has had a few trials and many victories. We have learned and grown. We have struggled little and strengthened much. 2010 wasn't a bad year, but I'm glad it's over. I can't help but think 2011 is going to be great.
I have plans for 2011. Big plans. One way or another we will be moving to a bigger place, our baby girl is going to be more awesome than ever before, JD and I are going to seek God more wholly, and there will be lots of joy. Did you know that you can choose to be joyful? I'm choosing joy this year. And I'm looking forward to all of it. Goodbye 2010. You've been pretty cool, but 2011 is going to be so much better.
