GoodBye 2010


First off I wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season. Whatever you celebrate, believe or do this time of year, may you do it with a full heart, joy, happiness, love and laughter.

In less than two weeks our year will be over. I can’t say 2010 was the best year of my life, but it was absolutely not the worst. There were moments of suck and on the moments of FAB! I will say through it all my very best friend was by my side and in it every day with me. I love you SBH. Thank you. This summer another friend packed up her life and moved to London. In doing so she left her crafty self behind for a hiatus and went on a personal self journey.

As I write this I think of her. I am not moving to North Carolina. She, besides other friends encouraged me to do an interview I was not sure about, and take a chance. I took that chance and realize in doing so created personal growth for myself. I was being courted by a company that needed things I could bring to the table, change their business and my life. After much reflection and some serious pro/con conversations with many friends including Jenn I absolutely could not take this job. It was not a good fit. She was my cheerleader along with Dicky and the experience was exactly what they said it would be. Growth.

I am somewhat disappointed this did not go through (again  my decision) because I was talking myself into being close to my childhood. I was creating a homesickness for the bay that over came me with such force I did mourn last week when I made my final decision over the deal. Jenn called from London (very late for her) on Sunday night and we discussed all of my bullet points to no. She encouraged me to write it all down for myself even if I did not publish in forward on my blog.

She then pointed me to another crafty Jenn who did a London Life Change and who is living a parallel life to hers. On the Other Jenn’s blog I found this amazing list. 30 Days of Photos.

Sounds perfect to me. I am going to make JellyFish (SBH) do it with me.
