Top Events From 2010

by Meghann on December 31, 2010

Can you believe today is the last day of 2010? This year has definitely been an adventure.

When I graduated college back in 2007 I wasn’t sure where life was going to take me. That first year after school was tough. I lost friends, I lost a big relationship, I lost ME. Luckily, I discovered that post-college limbo wasn’t working for me anymore and in 2008 I decided to make some changes. And as they say - the rest is history.

Here’s a look back at 2008 and 2009.

Since then life just continues to improve and keeps getting better and better over time. I’ve learned if you want to be happy you have to work hard at it  and – trust me – I work my ass off at it. Back then that 22 year old college graduate was just letting life pass her by, now I grab it by the horns and hold on for the ride.

2010 was another amazing year in this adventure I call life. Here’s a look back at some of my favorite events from the last 12 months.
