Dear 2009

Dear 2009,

What a year you have been, you have broken my heart, you have lifted my spirits but most importantly you have let me grow.

In January my house was broken into and while nothing major was taken or anything of sentimental value was lost, I lost my feeling of safety. Home is where your meant to be able to hide from the world to feel safe, it is you little part of the universe. To this day I have not been able to get this feeling back, I still cant sleep when I am home alone and every little creek makes me anxious. I hope 2010 restores this for me.

In February you let me celebrate 2 years with the man I adore and love. Thankyou for giving me such a loving and caring partner to share this year with.

In April you nearly took my much loved and admired grandmother away from me. Luckily she fought back and is still here with us today.

In June you once again took away my faith in the human race when my little car was stolen and trashed. It broke me to see my little car smashed to pieces. My first car that my parents gave to me when I turned 17.

In July and August you gave me the most amazing adventure a girl could ask for, 5 weeks travelling around Europe and the UK with one of my very best friends. This was a life changing experience and opened my eyes up to a whole new world.

In December you gave me a birthday that I got to celebrate with many important people in my life. You let me have three weeks away from work and uni to enjoy the simple things again.

Most of all you are giving me a new start. 2010 is set to be a big year there is alot I need to achieve and want to achieve and after the challenges and amazing experiences of this year I feel I am ready for anything!

Love Megan x

Brendan and I 2009.


  1. Aw, I loved reading this. Sounds like an interesting year you had. Hope 2010 is lovely for you :)

  2. Woop woop to a fresh start! Bring on 2010!

  3. what a pretty post. that first line is just perfect and sums up my 2009 completely. i'm going to have to remember it.

    what a bittersweet one you had! your poor car, your poor house. :(

    but oh the good outweighs the bad, doesn't it always?

    loved meeting you in 09 and i just know our friendship will continue. xoxo

    ps. GORGEOUS pic of you and your love

  4. This really has been a year of ups and downs for you. I know that next year it will be so much better! The Europe trip sounds amazing and I really love that photo :)

    I know how you feel about the lose of security with your house being broken into because that happened to me a few years ago. Except I was home when it happened. I was freaked out for a very long time.

    I hope that your New Year will be blessed and full of promise :) x

  5. Wow have you had an exciting and long year filled with lots of love and challenges (especially starting it with a house invasion, ek!). Here's to hope that 2010 is five hundred times better than your last - if that's possible ;)

  6. this is such a good idea...hmmmm maybe i shall write a letter too!

  7. I hope you have a wonderful 2010 and that you regain that feeling of safety - I can't sleep when I'm on my own either. I'm sad I didnt know you in July when you were in the UK x
