As its the end of the year, it's time to recap 2010.
1. The Engagement
Sure, the actual engagement happened in 2009. But waking up engagement on January 1st and having my family coming into town was pretty exciting. Plus, planning this wedding was one of the biggest topics of 2010, and it all began with the engagement.
2. Ben and I move in together
Shortly after the engagement, Ben and I moved in to our apartment just outside of D.C. Living together has been exciting and we've learned so much more about each other during the past year. I absolutely adore our apartment, and we were both devistated when we thought we were going to have to move this January (don't worry, we aren't moving).
3. Securing a wedding location
After tons and tons of research, we finally narrowed our wedding location to three places. Each different but awesome in their own way. But when another couple wanted one of our location, we were given less than 24 hours to stake our claim. After lots of analysis, talking and tears, we decided to take Hibernian Hall.
4. Haddis' passing
The death of Haddis was both shocking and sad. Ben lost his best friend and a groomsman in our wedding. I'll never forget when Ben recieved that phone call. Some days, it doesn't seem real.
5. Running a 10K
When we all decided to run a 10K, I wasn't sure we were actually going to follow through with the plan. But somehow, we did. Despite getting lost, running a mile warmup, and being 10 minutes late, it was an amazing experience. It has inspired me to keep on running. Bring on Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon 2012!
