1.1.11... reflecting on 2010

So it was a busy busy year. I'm going to attempt to sum it up with a string of photos. Consider this a post about my most favorite documented moments of 2010:

It wouldn't be right if I didn't start it off with a picture of this little guy: MICKEY.


He joined the family on Christmas as a gift to my little sister and he is the epitome of hope.

Valentines day came and Eliana (my sister) and I decided to bake some yummy sugar cookies.


It was mine and Britton's first Valentines as a married couple.


After 2 years of missionary service, Elder Coy finally returned home!


And then.. on a photog's afternoon out I snapped these two images of the one and only Kaneischa Johnson. These images are still some of my favorite of her to date!


Early spring brought a fun trip out to Eureka with the Gillries:


And by April we were on our way to Texas for the summer (by way of Arizona... and the Meteor Crater)


Texas brought lots of surprises... like a little town named after my husband :)


And a super festive 4th of July...


We celebrated 11 months of marriage while in Dallas...


And enjoyed spending time with friends (and their beautiful children) while we were away from home.


It doesn't really matter where I am... as long as Britton and I are together, we have so much fun. The FortWorth Stockyards were a cool treat.


Knocking doors in hot, humid and nasty Texas summers is not fun, nor is it something that I ever want to do again. BUT... the opportunity to meet all different kinds of people and to interact with them was cool. Here's some photo proof in mobile uploads:

guy on the left: random guy on the street in Corsicana, TX.
guy on the right: someone I met when knocked on his door.


this picture really speaks for itself. This guy offered me spiked coke and was smoking a cigar in his garage. He was Cuban and said I could be his "other" wife.


And then Kaneischa came to visit... and I'm not kidding when I say that she's one of my most favorite people ever.


I heart America


Not long after getting back.. we left again. This time it was to California for a much needed California Adventure :)


DISNEYLAND!


We were also able to see my brother Chris and his wife Jillayne while we were in LA. It's not fun being so far apart, but it's nice to be able to visit in cool places.


September was filled with one fun thing after the next... Moab with the Beckhams, Lake Powell with team rockstar... the fun didn't stop.


And... Upon our return, the beautiful contax entered my life. And thus began a photo-filled fall, full of all good things, families, babies, fashion and fun:


This is officially the longest post ever. But it was a phenomenal year. And I have no doubt that 2011 will be even better. I'm going to end the post with one more little grouping of pictures. 2010 wouldn't be complete without Fork Fest. It was beautiful day of music and friends in American Fork. Love the photos from that day! To see more, visit my website.


Here's to a NEW YEAR!
