Taking it Up a Level

When I wrote my New Year's post I was thinking of the year that was, instead of the decade that was. For some reason I am having a hard type grasping the concept that I am old enough to talk about entire decades without sounding ridiculously pretentious. But I guess I can. And looking back, the 2000s were pretty life altering.

Some of the positive happenings:
  • 2000: Start it up. January 2nd, started a new job in the dot com world. Enjoyed the ride, got some perks, got out 2.5 years later.
  • 2001: The year of travel. Paris and London with the my boyfriend at the time (the Hoos, natch) and Costa Rica with my parents and brother.
  • 2002: NEW everything. New state (NY from VA), new job, new husband, new life (you know, with the Hoos starting law school approximately 36 hours after we fed each other wedding cake...)
  • 2003-2004: Small moves. Including my first move to CT.
  • 2005: Big moves. Law school graduation, the Bar(s), homeownership, pregnancy.
  • 2006: Hello gorgeous! Motherhood. Figuring out life as a full-time mom and part-time employee.
  • 2007: Coasting. Watching LP grow. And pregnant again.
  • 2008: Heaven. LP kissing her baby sister for the first time.
  • 2009: The life. The kids, the husband, the house...what more do I really need?
