The last couple days I have some time to think and reflect on 2009
Although it was one of the hardest years of my life it was also my most rewarding.

Mother's Day 2009

Colton and I went through some BIG changes but are coming out of it stronger and better people. I never could have imagined how such a little person could have such a big impact on every decision I made this year. I never went into anything lightly and I really thought hard about what the right thing for both of us was. I don't regret anything and I'm happy with our life. Granted I wish I could provide Colton with a "traditional" family but I know that we are better off. I love him with my whole heart and pray daily that I am doing the right thing.

I also went through a big change personally. I started the year unhealthy and unhappy and I'm proud to say that I'm ending the year much healthier and happier.

Before (yikes)


We went on FUN vacations

Colton had a lot of firsts

We spent a lot of time with family and friends doing fun things

Of course I have some resolutions but I kept them simple.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle
Manage my finances
Be the BEST mother I know how to be

I want to thank everyone who was there supporting us and making this year one of our bests!
As we look forward to 2010 I am hopeful. I know there will be challenges and some things are going to be difficult for me but I also know that great blessings are in store for us. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us.
