down Memory lane

What do I most want to remember about 2010? If I could only choose certain memories to keep from the past year, which ones would I take to carry with me in life? I spent a good fifteen minutes contemplating this while cooking dinner tonight. I came to the conclusion that I did not do very much exciting this year. Luckily, I am a woman who values simple and beautiful experiences…and those memories are the ones I want to hold close as we prepare to step forward into a new year.

I want to remember…

– Spending Valentine’s Day with my friend, Meg. Especially the “romantic” and beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean at La Jolla Cove. We sat on the wall, surrounded by couples old and young, and ate chocolate covered pretzels, and watched the sun disappear into the horizon. I swear I saw the elusive Green Flash that night….

– Kayaking with my mom on the clearest and calmest and sunniest of San Diego days…

– Sitting in the new Target Field stadium in Minneapolis with Micaela watching the Twins triumph over the Seahawks while the skyline burned with the coming dusk…

– Eating a delicious Philly cheesesteak sandwich on a park bench in Philadelphia on a hot June afternoon…

– Girls’ Nights with Kim, Meredith, & Liesl–complete with tortilla chips and salsa, gourmet cheeses, hummus, and wine…

– The way you hugged me when you saw me for the first time after a year had passed…


What will you remember most from 2010?
