A lot, and when I say a lot, I mean a lot has happened! I am not as good as Jenn over at The Road To Happily Ever After and I cannot list things by years (I admire your memory Jenn!). Some I know the years, others I have no idea, so I worry if I tried to do it by years, some years may look blank!
So in no particular order, here are some of the big, life changing events that have happened over the last 10 years!
*Graduated High School
*Lost my very close friend at 18 to brain cancer
*Chaired the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life for 3 yrs (was the youngest in the state)

*Dumped my high school boyfriend after 4 years (this was a huge deal!)
*Moved to Cleveland for a guy (I was young & dumb!)

So all in all, the past 10 years has been eventful & has really had it's ups & downs. I look forward to the next decade & hope I can look back on it, as I do this last 10 & think it has really made me who I am.
May you all have a Very Happy & Safe New Years!
