Today, as I was driving home from my wonderful new job, I had a great idea for my last blog post of 2009. Rather than writing a long-winded trip down memory lane, I wanted to post the single most profound event in my life from each month of 2009. It was–by far–the most up and down year of my life, and I don’t want to forget any of it as the decades roll by. So without further ado, here is 2009 a la Alex.
JANUARY: Embarking on the final semester of college during one of the economy’s biggest downturns–fun!
FEBRUARY: “Mawwiage. Mawwiage is what bwings us togetha twoday.” 🙂
MARCH: Busiest month of college projects–from long papers to major presentations, it was time to tackle them (successfully, I might add!).
APRIL: We became uncles to one of the cutest little babies in the world, Mr. Luke Angelo!
MAY: RIP Grandma–thanks for the lemon bars–they’ll never taste quite as good again.
JUNE: Au revoir, Hamilton; Metuchen, here we come!
JULY: A promotion that wasn’t entirely as it seemed…
AUGUST: RIP Grandpa–and thanks for the subtle message in October: you were right, it was “time to make the donuts”!
SEPTEMBER: Picking battles and winning a few.
OCTOBER: Celebrating our love surrounded by family and friends!
NOVEMBER: Diving in and following dreams without holding back; opening the book to write the next chapter.
DECEMBER: A new job, a new outlook and new horizons–might 2010 bring a house (or other great surprises)?
Looking back on it, how was 2009 for you? Tell me about it with a comment below!
