2010 in review

It was a year of change. There were ups and downs that came with that change, but overall I’m proud. Proud that I’ve gotten certain aspects of my life in order and that I made good on two of my major resolutions. I hope to keep that going into 2011.

Here are my highlights from each month!

January

Going with Geof to see SafetySuit in concert for the first time and getting to see Parachute too! That first show led into many more during the year. We saw them a total of 11 times in 8 months. They’re an insanely talented band and all around great guys. It also gave us a good reason to take some fun getaways.

February

This was the month of record snowfall. 25 inches to be exact. I remember being stuck inside for days. Geof and I were also able to escape for a long Valentine’s weekend away in Connecticut and got to see SafetySuit at the Mohegan Sun as an added bonus.

Later in the month we went to Annapolis for another long weekend and saw SafetySuit again. It might have been cold, but we had a blast exploring downtown and had a wonderful time.

March

St. Patrick’s Day, lots of time with good friends and going to yet another SafetySuit show. This one was back in PA.

April

Best.Cruise.Ever. The title and theme of the cruise certainly lived up to its name. We saw many of our favorite bands including 3 Doors Down, Lifehouse, SafetySuit, Parachute, Shinedown and Carolina Liar. We met some wonderful friends that we’ve stayed in touch with to this day and it was a fabulous vacation.

We also celebrated Kelly’s 30th and went to see SafetySuit with Kristen & Sean in DE.
