you shall be missed, 2007.

Hello 2007. You were really good to me. Thanks for the beautiful memories. You’ll forever be tagged in my head as one of my favorite years yet….

a few reasons why:

In 2007, I….

  • got engaged inside a secret blanket fort in my apartment
  • a ridiculous diamond ring was put on my finger (it wasnt even my birthday!)
  • got a husband
  • got bangs
  • made the very lady like decision to stop biting my nails
  • signed my intent to graduate form for May of next year
  • discovered pinkberry and found yet another new obsession
  • also discovered I like Britney’s new song, Gimme More. I don’t care if you judge me
  • got a new last name (even though it’s not exotic, I promise I’m still happy husband)
  • watched josh graduate from Columbia in 103 degree weather as I sunburned one side of my face
  • learned to just let things happen in life that weren’t on my “schedule”
  • got to prance and dance around in a big old vintage wedding dress
  • grew up alot

But then there are always the things that had to go in 2007:

  • Josh’s awesome beard
  • my 40% off discount at Sabon
  • my clean criminal record (darn you, bike)
  • my red cowboy boots
  • my firm mattress (oh lover, the things I do for you…)
  • my maiden name
  • my retainer (if only you could speak, and remind me to wear you, we’d both be happy)
  • my still-to-this-day-lost Davis Sedaris books on CD
  • Mr. Prices poetry class
  • my European audition tour
  • my pre-made grilled chicken caesar salad from Balduccis . (what genious decided to give it the boot? I was its most loyal costumer)
  • my entire life via computer when it crashed in March and I hadn’t backed anything up
  • the mom jokes (thank you, carolyn)

Looking forward to 2008 because….

  • I graduate from Juilliard
  • the presidential elections
  • I get to use my new Holga Camera everyday outside!!! (thank you josh, er, Santa)
  • summer will come
  • so will my 1-year wedding anniversary
  • I’ll cook more
  • I’ll change up my hair someway
  • learn more about film and photography
  • I’ll continue my search for new (but still worn) red cowboy boots
  • still take dance classes after graduation (uh huh. Can you tell I’m mixing a few new years resolutions in with this list?)
  • wake up next to josh every morning (not one of the new years resolutions. obviously)
  • decorate another Christmas tree with my awesome husband
  • have no affiliation with The Juilliard School after May 23rd

2008, Come out and show yourself, I’m ready.

  1. Awesome list. Good luck on the new cowboy boots. You are hilarious. Happy New Year.

  2. Sheri

    So I was wondering if you would share the story behind the cowboy boots?

  3. i am new to your blog- {in fact if it's possible….new to blogging all together!} and.. i love your blog. and i love this! and although i'm reading it 3 years last, it inspired me to make my own list of reasons i loved 2010 {one of which is- i got a husband and lost my maiden name too}. thanks for the inspiration to appreciate a years worth of triumps, pitfalls and blessings! Merry Christmas!
