Musings of a Museum Fanatic: A Decade of Memories

A Decade of Memories

It wasn't until about a week ago that it dawned on me that we're on the cusp of a new decade! I've been saying this for the past couple of years but where is the time going?! It's kind of amazing how quickly time has been going. I thought it would be fun to pick out one photo that would represent each year from the past decade. Looking back throughout years of photographs it's amazing how much has happened and changed!! How are you feeling about entering a new decade? 

2010
This was one of the main years of Stache, Kevin's band. I was always out with friends at the shows. This was from one in February of that year. I remember doing my hair and dressing in the red top because of Valentine's Day. Getting to spend so much fun and memorable times with friends was for sure what defined 2010. 


2011
This was definitely the year of wedding stuff. Kevin and I got engage April of 2011! This photo is from the day we got engaged. We went out to dinner with his parents at our favorite Italian place (which is now closed sadly). 

2012
Of course I would pick a wedding photo for 2012! This was the biggest thing to happen in 2012 for sure. This is one of my favorite photos from our wedding. We were tucked in a side hallway after the ceremony and the photographer just caught this photo.

2013
This might seem like a really odd photo since all of my other photos are of people. In 2013 after 5 years of applying, networking and hustling I finally got my first full time job at a museum! Technically this is from 2014 but this is the earliest photo I have from my full time job. Such a thrilling one right ha!?


2014
When it comes to 2014 I'm going to cheat and share two photos. This was such a big year for multiple reasons. The first part of the year was defined by the stress and sadness of Dad going through his cancer treatment and passing away. He had mom take this one for me since he was reading the magazine I gave him in his chemo bag. Lane's birth really defined the second part of our year. Lane is just a couple of hours old in this photo. Our first one together!

2015
Kevin's parents took us kids to Disney World in 2015! It was a wonderful trip. We all had a blast hanging out with each other and doing all things Disney. This photo was taken our first night there. It's one of my favorites from the trip. We were still soaked from the water ride and were able to get this photo snapped before we left the park. It was a whim photo and I love it.

2016
I dubbed 2016 the year of friends. After Dad passed I really focused inward and on family for most of 2015. It wasn't that I avoided friends but really wanted to be around family all the time. In 2016 I made a point to spend as much time with friends as possible. These ladies are always there for me and I love them so much! We snapped this photo during my birthday dinner at Weber Grill.

2017
A new niece for 2017! Elowen came along January of 2017. She made the year interesting that's for sure. This photo was before her three month phase where she would scream bloody murder if anyone but Bethany held her. Yeah fun times. She is so cute with those chubby cheeks you can't help but love her. 

2018
 Then there were two! Two nieces to be exact. Juliette made 2018 a surprising year that's for sure. She's made a great addition to the family and like with her older siblings I love seeing her grow and change. This photo was from the evening of Thanksgiving. Bethany and I were just chilling with her wrapped up snug as a bug.  

2019
The biggest event of 2019 was Kevin and I buying our first home together. It's been an adventure owning a place again together. Looking forward to redoing more of our place and making more memories here!
