Yesterday's Prompt was: One Word (to describe 2010 and hope to describe 2011)
My husband and I experienced many milestones during the past year. X and I worked through our first year of marriage. We took our first vacation as husband and wife. We have experienced living together (just the two of us + pups) for the first time. X started a new job at a new place in July and LOVES it. It has been just the right amount of motivation for him to decide to take on grad school in 2011. I have been lucky to have many, many doors open this year that will abeit success in my career (still can't believe I have one of those). On top of all that, X turned the big 3-0 in September, and I'm not far behind ;)
In my own life, I want to find balance between my career, my personal relationships, and my "me" time. I feel like I neglected many of my own hobbies during 2010 (for different reasons- trying to sell our house, burnt out from wedding planning, b-u-s-y). I guess it just boils down to time management, something I've always kind of failed at. Emotionally, 2010 was pretty stressful for me and for a good chunk of it, I was really strung out. For 2011, I want to be able to control my stress. I want my husband and I to continue to balance our finances together. I want us to continue to work together to find a balance between spending and saving. With us both studying or in school for the first half of 2011, I want us to be able to both find balance in our lives to be able to put aside time to work on our marriage. I feel like a marriage needs to continually grow and it's all about the time you put towards it.
