The Decade is Over

Vintage and Aged to PerfectionWell, on Saturday I finished a decade. So long twenties, and hello thirties!
I’m not upset about aging.  Birthdays have never upset me; in fact, I rather enjoy them.  Aging is a natural process, and the alternative would be horrific. 

However, birthdays do have a tendency of reminding me to look backwards.  When I think back on the last decade I can only come up with two words that describe it:

busy & expensive

The last 10 years have had some very high highs and very low lows, but overall I had the best time.  I would not do anything different.  I wouldn’t change a single thing.

What I did over the last 10 years:
I got my bachelors, my masters, & my doctorate.
I got married to the love of my life.
I traveled to Canada, Brazil, St. Thomas, Mexico, & the Bahamas.
I worked as: an appliance sales woman, a shampoo technician, a nanny, an event planner, a food critic for our college newspaper, a retailer at Pier 1, a patient care attending in an Operating Room, a researcher investigating pharmaceuticals at the Medical College of Virginia, a researcher investigation rehabilitation methods for pediatric neuronal oncology at Texas Children’s Hospital, a teaching fellow, and now a professor.
I moved 7 times.
I moved to Houston and got a Texas driver's license! WHAAAAATTT????
Bought a house (and all the furniture to fill it).
I purchased 3 cars.
I struggled with infertility
I became a mom of two, one sweet little boy on earth and one at home with Jesus.
I became a fur mama to Tomlin and Rooney.
I birthed this here blog ;-) and made some amazing friends!

See a lot happened in 10 years, and these are just the things I can remember (recall that I’m aging and the memory is going haha).  I’m looking forward to what the next decade holds for me and my family.

xoxo Darby
