2008 has had its ups and downs. I was ready to say good riddance, but looking back at pictures, it really wasn't THAT bad. Some really great things happened this year. Mainly, we got to spend lots of time with really wonderful people... and had some really fun times...and made lots of great memories. We're so blessed to have such great family and friends to share our lives with.

2009, I'm ready for you... and have big plans: More trips, more parties, a graduation, new job, remodeling/redecorating, a business, reconnecting with old friends, making new ones, Kindergarten, celebrating a new president, getting rid of crap, making each day count.
Oh yeah '09... you better bring it!
