5 Minutes

December 15 – 5 Minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010. (Author: Patti Digh)

When Matt brough me a mixer in the middle of the night because the one at work was broken. The anticipation of waiting for him to kiss me.

Deciding to meet people I know from the internet in real life in order to push myself beyond my comfort level. Whiskey and wine bar, pantless train rides and champagne and cupcake dinner.

Leaving the restaurant world.

Changing jobs again. The girls on my last day giving me hugs, thanking me and actually tearing up. Asking me if I was sure I was ready to become even more attached to kids and telling me I inspired them.

The giddiness when Matt and I decided to move in together.
