2010 ~ A Photographic Year in Review

A few months back, if you recall, my computer died. {you can click these underlined words for further details}

Tragedy. {the computer dying part not the story links}

Well a brand new laptop recently arrived requiring all types of data transfers from complicated backup systems. It has been some hard work here in the trenches and I’ve had to request assistance at times from DH. With his computer Mega-Mind he has turned into Jimmy Fallon’s character Nick Burns from SNL. “Move Over” has a whole new meaning to me.

So as part of this data reconfiguration I’ve had to review ALL OF MY photographs.

Cheese and Rice

But in doing so I was able to reflect on 2010 in a whole new way. The Computer Gods work in very mysterious way. Indeed.  

I thought I would share the following photos straight from the Archives as a photographic recap of 2010.

And my hard drive is now overly organized.

As far as years go, I feel this one, if you omit/forget about the medical issues was pretty darn fun. I’m giving it a solid 9+.

Thank you for joining me at Sugar and Spice this year. It has been my happy place where I can share some of the things I love. I hope you have enjoyed it friends.

I see big things in store for 2011 and I can’t wait to share!

Happy New Year

    • Lindsay the most fabulous {Designer Wife} <– love that BTW. Yes, January was very hard. Overwhelming sadness had arrived for a visit and it took the love from friends and family to kick her out. Happy feelings then snow-balled and this decade will be ending on an amazing note.
