Cheers for 2011

2010 was a crazy year for Jon and I. As we celebrated New Years Eve last night and brought in the new year we remembered all the heartache, loneliness, and sadness we experienced. Without a doubt 2010 was our hardest year yet. We started out 2010 being seperated by 600 miles while Jon started our Denver adventure. I had to stay in Arizona to finish out my teaching contract. It was so hard being away from Jon for 5 months. I will NEVER do that again! We then got together in the summer and found out that we were expecting our first baby. We were delighted by the surprising news and couldn't wait for February 18th, 2011 to come because thats when we were going to meet our little girl! Things took a turn for the worst in August and after being 13 weeks pregnant I had to end the short journey I had with our little girl. That was the hardest thing we have done. But it has made us grow so close and realize the wonderful things we have. We are grateful to have a little girl waiting for us in heaven and know she has touched our hearts in ways that we can't even explain.

2010 wasn't a complete downer. We had highlights as well. Jon started graduate school at University of Colorado Denver studying healthcare administration and accounting. We moved to a great place and have made wonderful friends in Denver. I found a teaching job and count my many blessings for that because as many of you know teaching jobs are not being found in this economy. So we can't say nothing great happened this past year. But we do know that 2011 will bring us joy and we both have a good feeling about this great new year that is upon us. We look forward to hopefully getting another opportunity to have another baby and for the chance to love that boy or girl with all that we have. We will find out where Jon will do his residency in 2012 so we can plan our future. We also plan on travelling a bit to see family and friends. We also know that 2011 will bring surprises and we can't wait to see what it has in store for us. So here is to 2011and the wonderful year it will be for us and for all of you! Cheers!!
