Best Moment 2010.

As we wind down 2010 {which is simply unbelievable to me} I've been thinking about 2011. I've got some plans, some dreams that will finally come to, a book proposal that will finally be ready to be accepted {or rejected}. I'm promising myself to balance things a little better and to re-prioritize a few things that got shifted. I'll be writing. Here. There. And Elsewhere.

I've also been looking back and while I'll do my typical looking back post on New Years I've been thinking about my favorites.

My favorite days.
My favorite moments.

I could even probably tell you a few of my least favorite. {I bet you could too.}

But I keep getting stuck on a couple, predictable, cliche' days, I loved.

Birthdays, anniversaries, special milestones, of course.

But there is one evening with my family that sits on my mind as my favorite.

This night.




The pictures are low quality, shot in the dark of a Virginia Beach night but oh remembering the way we laughed our heads off, danced our sillies out and loved each other. It's my best.

What's your best? What one moment or day or event this last year was your best?

Tell me for a chance to win in 2010's last giveaway- $10 Starbucks card.

Winner to be chosen by at 11:59pm 12/31/10 and announced sometime on 1/1/11.

Disclosure: The Starbucks giftcard is a sponsor gift to me that I am passing along to a reader. {Starbucks is not in anyway involved. I wish they were!}  Also, in the case that you are a business owner or etsy shop seller, I am currently accepting new advertisers for 2011. Email me for rates and information.

best moment of 2010-

January 19, 2010- the night 40 bloggers from across the Cities came together for the first time, many never having met in person, and setting in motion the best year of building friendships and having fun that i've ever known

Isn't it funny that I totally remember you that night in your pink scarf and hat but I never even said 'hello' to you or anything. And I remember you at the Cub event too, with mischievous little E, but never formally introduced myself then, either.

so anyway.... Samara, I'm Kate. I write a food blog. And I just want you to know that I love reading about your family. Thanks for what you do.

Hard choice! I had quite a few good moments this year. I think my favorite has to be a night Nate and I spent in Itasca, with the sun setting behind the trees, sitting on our three season porch and roasting marshmellows on a teeny tiny sterno (no fire pit up there!) to make Smores.

You probably aren't anticipating this answer, but I think my best moment of 2010 is yet to come. Tomorrow morning, I will drive to O'Hare Airport to pick up my boyfriend, whom I have not seen for EIGHT long months. I am so excited I can't stand it! Seeing his face and giving him a huge hug... that's going to be my favorite moment!

I went back through my blog and tried to think of a favorite moment of the year and couldn't pin just one down...but I can think of the many moments were tears have come to eyes watching my family and realizing just how grateful I am for everything God has provided for me. I truly am blessed and thankful.

S - I also loved that night. It was amazing and will live in my memory forever. What better way to end our vacation than dancing with our kids as fireworks go off over the ocean. Loved it and in love with you. J

Samara -
I think the moment that stands out in my mind is our trip to Disney World. Much like you, it was so great just being together. Laughing, being silly, all just really focused on our time together! No other distractions! We all loved it!

My favorite moment was the morning of Aug. 2. It was Ty's first day of kindergarten and my first day teaching full time.

This one's easy--the birth of my son in September! And every day since when I realize I love him even more than the day before. :)
