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.

I want to remember the sound of Mark saying “Oh, shit” when he read the pregnancy test. There was something real and magical and appropriate about that phrase and the smile that was plastered all over his face when our eyes met.
I want to remember anything before we found out we were pregnant. Not because it’s been so monumental, but because I really can’t seem to recall anything. My brain just doesn’t work.
I want to remember driving home from Mexico last year after spending the holidays with Mark’s family. I don’t know that life had ever felt so complete before. Mark and I were doing amazing and I was finding my place in his family.
I remember seeing the gas station/animal farm on the way to Savannah and almost causing an accident when I demanded Mark stop immediately. I had started to believe it was a figment of my imagination.
I remember visiting the places of Twilight (Forks and La Paz) with my best friends from high school. Nothing compares to knowing that you’ve made friends that will actually last a lifetime.
