I'm home from our Christmas trip to Illinois last week, and am slowly getting back into a routine (and cleaning up from the Christmas aftermath!). Before we left for Illinois, Will and I had Christmas with my family. Then, we drove out to Illinois for time with Will's family. It was great to get out of the city and enjoy a slower pace of life. We had lots of family time and even enjoyed some four-wheeling! I also did a lot of reflecting on the past decade and the New Year and decade to come. Since this decade is quickly coming to an end, I thought it would be worthwhile to share highlights of the decade and the honest ups and downs that came with it.
