2009 Awesomeness #2

Awesome thing I did in 2009 #2:


We went to Paris (twice!)
Cap D'Ail and Monaco in the South of France:

Norway (to see the Northern Lights - amazing):

All over Switzerland:


The year living in London was amazing for travel. I wouldn't trade that part for anything. You learn so much about yourself and your relationship when you travel. You learn how you handles stress and deal with unfamiliar places and languages. You also learn how to much better experience and appreciate the space you live in.

First post is the hardest? + Awesome thing I did in 2009 #1

I have always really wanted to have my own blog. I love blogs and have many favorites that I read daily. But who wants to read a blog written by ME? I have decided I don't really care - this year, I will be a blogger. If no one reads, oh-well.

So, how to start my new and sure-to-be-awesome blog?

I am thinking countdown...

Countdown of awesome things I did in 2009 (yes, yes I know it is already Jan. 20th - whatever)

So, the first awesome thing I did in 2009 (and 2008 to be honest) is:

Lived in London

(Me at Borough Market in London.)

In July 2008 my fiance and I moved from Chicago to London to work and have a great life experience. We had both always wanted to live abroad and we made it happen! It was different, scary, hard, fun, life changing and amazing in so many ways.
