2010 was a very interesting year...
we uprooted our life in charleston and moved to beaufort, we found out we were having a baby boy, i ate my first fried pickle (and loved every minute of it), i spent 13 wks on bed rest, my daughter turned 3, a best friend survived a near fatal car accident, i had the honor of being published, i turned 31, we made new friends, i gave birth to a healthy baby boy, i joined jazzercise (and i might have dropped out), my husband and i started running again (and then maybe stopped), i expanded my company, we cooked a lot, i grocery shopped at walmart, i accomplished potty training (but not w/out a good, hard fight and maybe some tears), we drove 3,000 miles in a wk w/out the kiddos....but the best part was the time spent w/ my hubbie and two kids that i will never be able to replace.
so what does 2011 have going on???  well, my hubbie has a new job and we are moving to columbia, sc and that's about all i know for sure....but i am excited to see how it all unfolds!!
**to beaufort, our friends, and my parents- thank you from the bottom of my heart for a beautiful town and a very memorable year ;)

Sounds like a very full year to me. That move to SC should be a good one.

Quite a year, indeed! Love your blog. Welcome to Columbia! My husband and I moved here from Charleston, for him to attend Medical School. Tough to move away from the ocean, but we have really come to love it! Let me know if you need any direction/advice. You will find the most adorable little house to make beautiful...Good luck with the move! Caroline

Shannon,
We moved quite a bit when our kids were little. It was good. They had much to talk about. I actually was able to plan a couple of our moves when they were in elementary school. We moved mid term, yep, over Christmas break!
My crazy theory being that if we moved mid year, they would have friends for the summer. It worked! Plus when you are new at midterm, seems like everyone knows your name!
I wish you and your sweet family all the best. Wherever you go, there you are...still a family : )

Jamie said...

new to your blog, but read that you're moving to Cola (Columbia)! Both my parents and my husband's parents live there and we love having every opportunity to come back "home"! Enjoy!! You're not too far from your old homes in Charleston and Beaufort either!!
There are many fun places to eat and shop downtown. The Northeast is really growing too! (If you are looking for a church, check out Crossings Community near Killian Rd/Clemson Rd.)
Look forward to reading your blog more!!!
