2010 was an amazing year for us! Personally, and professionally (mostly for Brad). I think we learned a lot about who we are, what we want in life, and the relationships we have with our friends. I feel very thankful and blessed that we were able to do some really amazing trips this year that I will never forget. As much as I loved 2010 I was very glad to see it go, and I am VERY excited for 2011!! Hope you all had a wonderful year and I wish you all the best for 2011!
