Much Love Monday [looking back at 2010]

[credit to my friend Grace for squeezing in all those little daisies through her cute hat just for Much Love Monday!]

2011 seemed to have sneaked up on me, because I hadn't even had a chance to look back and reflect on 2010 yet! Well it's better late than never, so I thought I'd highlight some of the things that made me grateful in twenty-ten.

I love that in 2010, I...
♥ reached over 1000 blog followers, and so happy that it keeps growing.
♥ have been enjoying and learning photography (especially with film) more and more.
♥ won a Holga kit, thanks to you blog readers!
♥ moved into a new apartment.
♥ learned how to knit (thanks to Jen of me.u)!
♥ contributed graphic design work for unicorn/dream magazine.
♥ met some wonderful online/blogger friends in person.
♥ shared my blog with some close "real-life" friends (that IS a big deal, and you know I trust someone when I do that!), and feel grateful for their positive response and support.
♥ followed through with my idea of opening a new Etsy shop, but also knowing when to (sadly) pull the plug as I'll be closing it down soon.
♥ made an effort to read more books, which I did thanks to the Slow Readers club as well as the many hours of free time during commuting. Oh, and the local library.
♥ the biggest highlight is when I landed a job that I really wanted - especially after job hunting for a long time - and learning so much (still).
