2009 Year in Review

2009 was certainly an eventful year. (2010 is shaping up to be pretty busy, too, which is why I’m almost a week late with this post.) Last year we said “I do” in a garden on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Nick left a good job in northern New Jersey and accepted an even better job in central Pennsylvania. We traveled to Massachusetts, Michigan, and Colorado. We experimented with lots of new recipes, celebrated our 27th birthdays, and finished our first half marathon together. Here are a few more memorable moments from 2009.

  • March: Traveled to Washington, D.C. where I produced my first major educational event, enjoyed French food, Greek food, and Ethiopian food, and toured the U.S. Capitol Building.

  • May: Visited friends in Massachusetts and walked the Freedom Trail, drank blueberry beer, steamed mussels, and fished for cod in the Harbor.

Oh, I can’t wait to see what 2010 has in store for us! Happy (belated) New Year to all my friends!

  1. You are so cute! I, for some reason, never saw the save the dates or invitations. (I think I found you right before you got married, who knows how) and they are adorable. When I get married in 200 years you can plan my wedding 🙂 You had a great 2009 and hope you have a great 2010!
