Five on Friday | Fairbanks Photographer

Yep, it's the Fairbanks Photographer Five on Friday. I don't know what that means, but I guess it sounds more official ;)

Friday 5 copy

So as the past week has come & gone ... we are now 8 days (or more if you are reading this over the weekend) into the New Year ... the new decade. I didn't really give it much thought ... that whole "decade" part until I started reading some other blogs I enjoy and having that moment really sink in ... thinking back ten plus years. So I guess my five will be dedicated to that ... the decade theme...

In the past 10 years I've

  1. found the one I laugh with, live with, love
  2. officially at a Valentine's party, no less (and if you know me, I really don't celebrate Valentine's Day ha!)
  3. unofficially we were friends years before that ... at 18, wouldn't you know
  4. I've lived in at least 5 different states and began to follow my dream somewhere along the way
  5. I've become mama to two beautiful red heads (again, who knew!)
  6. all of that taking place right here, making them 5th generation Alaskans
  7. I'm a small business owner (my middle child ;) )
  8. and have spread my wings into mentoring (which I love)
  9. I've lost a grandmother-in-law & a grandfather, two of my favorite people that when they met for the first time, were like old friends
  10. in the past 10 years I can happily say that life has changed, good, bad & indifferent ... and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy 5 ;) and may your next 10 be worth remembering.
