Memories, Dreams and Reflections of 2010

I'm a little tardy to the party on this post, but better late than never, right?  So without further ado, let's start remembering and reflecting upon 2010.

1. Me!
Mommy & me

There aren't many photos of me from 2010; hopefully, now that I have a remote for my camera, I'll be able to actually take some self-portraits in 2011.

2. I love you
Getting comfy

Sandy-up close and personal

Captain Husband, Sammy and Sandy--my three main squeezes.

3. Still laughing
His "thinking hard" face, if you catch my drift

This is what I get for trying to capture a cute Christmas photo of Sammy; our shoot was interrupted by some very important "business"...in his pants. This face just gets me every time.

4. Winter Wonderland
Sammy's first snow--he's not that impressed

Sammy was not impressed by winter. At all.

5. Birthday
Introducing Samuel

It's not the best photo, since I took it with my iPhone (so I could text it immediately to Captain Husband), but this is the very first photo taken of Sammy--just minutes after he was born.

6. Friends
Sammy & Lillian

Sammy and his baby buddy, Lillian.

7. I Was Inspired
Another test shot: Pretty Kitty

This is the first picture that I took with my new DSLR; I still have so much to learn, but fortunately Sandy is a very willing test subject.

8. Spring Fever
Pink and white
Cherry blossoms in Brook Branch Park, New Jersey.

9. Travel or Vacation
My room at the Melrose Mansion

My room at the Melrose Mansion in New Orleans where I stayed when I traveled there for my friend's daughter's wedding in March.

10. Summer Days
NoVa Mommies play date at Fantasy Playground, Lake Ridge, Virginia

A playdate at the park...I didn't take Sammy out much in the summer since he was just a newborn and summers in Virginia are horrible, but this is one of the few occasions where I was actually able to spend some time outdoors and mingle with some other moms and their children.

11. A Day in My Life
The diapers are DONE, man

Diapers...enough said.

12. All Smiles
Say cheese!

This is the first smile of Sammy's that I managed to capture on camera; he was eight weeks old.

13. Autumn Harvest
Sammy's first pumpkin

Sammy's first pumpkin.

14. Family
Four generations of Azzinnaris

Four generations of my husband's family on one sofa

15. Celebrate!
Ben and Sarah at their wedding

My little brother's wedding on 10/10/10.

16. Let's Do it Again...
Pinecone elf party!

Craft night with my girlfriends; we're going to try to get together and get our craft on at least every other month.  It's nice to do something that doesn't involve diapers or bottles every now and then.

17.  I Miss You
Captain Husband

Captain Husband (now you can all see where Sammy gets his striking blue eyes).

18. Beautiful
Magnolias in New Orleans

Magnolias in New Orleans; it was the most beautiful spring weather the entire time I was there.

19. Dress Up
Striped Sammy
Sammy in his white tiger costume.

20. Macro
Tiny snowflake

Tiny little snowflakes on the dash of my car.

21. Holidays
Sparkly + bokeh = holiday fun.

22. My Favorite
Snug as a bug
This is still my all-time favorite photo of 2010, for obvious reasons.

23. Don't Ever Change
Putting up with petting

Sandy is so incredibly patient and gentle with Sammy, especially when he attempts to pet her.  I love that they're both so fond of each other and I hope that never changes.

24. Just Because...So There!
Looking up

My attempt at an "artsy" photo.  I really need to take more photos of things that aren't Sammy and get to know my camera a bit better.

25. Hopes and Dreams
The happy family

This photo was taken on our second wedding anniversary, which coincidentally was just a few days before Captain Husband left for Korea. As such, it's one of the few photos that I have of the three of us together as a family. My hope and dream is that we'll have plenty more opportunities for family moments like this in 2011.

Thank you for revisiting 2010 with me and a special thank you to the lovely and talented Ashley for hosting this!  Click below to check out everyone else's Memories, Dreams and Reflections of 2010:
