Welcome 2011

Well, like many bloggers have the past couple days have I'm about to blog about the end of a year that was full of the highest highs and the lowest lows. I don't like being negative so I will not bring out the bad. So I'd love to highlight the top 5 moments of Stephanie Dautel's 2010:

1. My first trip to New York. I've dreamed about going to New York my whole life. And My trip to New York not only reached all of my expectations but it far exceeded anything I have ever dreamt it would be. I loved everything about the city, the trip, and most importantly the loving, kind thoughtful family that took me there. I can't think of anyone better to have gone to New York with. Thank you John, Donna and Alexis.
2. I graduated from college. After four long years and a lifetime of thinking about that moment, I finally did it. I graduated with a degree in Communications from BYU. Honestly, it's so weird to be done.

3. I went on an Alaskan cruise with the most amazing family. This was my first cruise and it was amazing. Alaska is truely beautiful and I got to spend the time with my family! 4. Friendships. I have developed and strengthened so many eternal friendships this year. I can't imagine and don't want to imagine what my life would be like without my friends. I was able to see my best friend leave on a mission, I was able to attend the wedding of another one of my best friends in Nauvoo.
5. I got called to serve in Young Womens in my ward. This is a calling I at times feel completely inadequate to hold. I have so much to learn and I learn something new each day. I love each and every one of the Young Women in the Draper 7th ward and I can't wait to continue to get to know each of you.

This all being said there are many events that happened in 2010 that I will cherish forever but these are some hilights. I will truely miss my grandparents who have died this year but I'm glad they can be together. I also miss my friends on missions. Especially Janelle. But i know without a doubt that they are doing what they are supposed to and I"m grateful for their sacrifice.
My Best Friend Janelle, She is serving a mission in Chile. I miss her like Crazy

I look forward to a bright new year. A year full of goals that I want to reach. A year full of love, friendships and family. New adventures and hopefully some old. I hope that I will have opportunities to travel some more and discover new things about myself, others and the world.


HELLO 2011!!!!!
