It’s my 30th birthday year. As part of my celebrations, I thought I would take my birthday month to reflect on my life. To help, I am using some of my scrapbooked pages to illustrate my life. For each year, I’ve chosen a few pages to highlight that year. I hope you enjoy my look back as much as I do.
2011: No pics of pretty scrapbook pages yet. I am a little behind on my scrapping… But 2011 was a year of big changes for me.
New Town — In June I moved three states and 10 hours away to Omaha, NE. It was something that I had been working toward for almost a year. Even though the population is triple of my hometown, in many ways it feels the same. Not quite the big city, but definitely with more to offer.
New Situation — A huge change in my family structure. Not exactly what I wanted, but in the end I had to compromise.
New Job — Moved in June and by September I was starting my new job. To compare, I was looking for work back in Indiana for a year without success. The economy is doing much better out here. Very thankful for that. A job means I can really start making a dent into my debt and start planning for the future. Plus, I love the people and organization I work for. It’s mission is to help kids and families; what could be better?
Contentment — After the funk of 2010, I’ve started to feel like I’m getting back to normal. My moods are more consistent. I’m getting more into crafting and reading. I really got moving on my blog. I found someone who I “fit” with. Things are really looking up!
And now on to my 30s. I feel like good things are going to happen this decade.
