The Decade of my Life

Ever wonder how to answer that question, "Where do you see yourself in ten years?"

It's impossible to believe that the first decade of the 21st century is coming to an end. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2000.

It's even more impossible for me to believe how far I've come in ten years.

2000 - I began my second semester of my freshman year at the University of St. Thomas. Later, in the first semester of my sophomore year, I meet Brian for the first time.

2001 - Brian and I begin dating. Together, with our friends, we have what may go down as the funnest summer of our lives.

2002 - I begin my senior year at college. My relationship with Brian becomes more serious.

2003 - I graduate from college and land my first real job at an HR consulting company. Come fall Brian and I are engaged to be married!

2004 - Brian graduates from college. He lands his first job selling computer software. We buy a house and two weeks later we get married. Whew! What a year!

2005 - Brian and I take lots of trips as DINKs. (Dual Income No Kids) We travel to Mexico and Las Vegas. I take a few business trips. Life is easy peasy.

2006 - I learn I am pregnant with our first child. In November William Joseph Nash enters the world. He has a rough start but things work out just fine.

2007 - I officially quit my job to stay at home with William full time. Simultaneously Brian switches employers. With no job to answer to William and I travel to San Fransisco to meet daddy on a business trip and later we go on a spring break adventure to Florida.

2008 - I become pregnant with our second child.

2009 - Brian switches employers once again. But before that happens Lucy Jean Nash enters our crazy family. We sell our first home and buy our current home in our dream location.

And we all lived happily ever after.

The End.

Except, it's probably not.

There'll be more kids, more houses and more jobs, no doubt. I'm ready! I can't wait to see where the next ten years will take our family.


  1. Wow. Talk about coming a long way. These ten years certainly have ushered in a lot of changes for you guys. Happy New Year!

  2. What a great decade. I bet the next one will be even better! :)
