Lots of people are doing out with the old, in with the new posts. top ten lists. best of’s.
I have been so busy that I don’t have the time or energy to really think about something that witty or profound.
But one person did have this question posted on twitter on New Years Eve: what were you doing 10 years ago?
And it made me smile. Because 10 years ago, I was partying like it was 1999 – and it was =) 10 years ago, I was hanging out with friends at a high school party. I was a senior and I had recently had my very first date with a classmate named Brandon. It was the winter Millenium Dance. And I asked him to go with me (so progressive!). So two weeks later, as I was hanging out on New Years Eve at this friends place, all I was wondering all night long was whether or not HE was going to show up. I knew he had other plans, but I still wondered. I think I even got to talk to him that night – a friend of mine called a friend of his he was with. It was a time of giddy excitement and the beginning of a relationship and it was all quite fun.
10 years later – I got to kiss that same man after the decade turned at midnight. 10 years later, we are married, and happy (lol – most of the time!) and I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else.
