Fare Thee Well, 2009.


I loved 2009. 

In it, my boys got bigger.  I found more reasons to love my husband.  I found increased passion about health care reform and our general care for humanity.  I became more secure and comfortable in my own skin.  I learned a lot from so many people.  I was challenged by those who don't feel the same way I do.  I watched the Obamas become the First Family.  I worked really hard.  I, with the country, said good-bye to Senator Ted Kennedy, and subsequently read his autobiography.  I joined Facebook and reconnected with so many people.  I realized that some people love me in spite of my beliefs instead of because of them.  I fell in love with Modern Family.  I went on my first ever week-long summer vacation.  I had my first-ever garage sale.

It was a good year.  In it, I was very happy, and could not ask for anything more than that.

Wishing you a very happy new year.  God bless you all.

I can't believe it. I was summing up the hard and the good on another blog and I totally forgot to mention one of the really good things about the year. Our new president and his wife. Sheesh.

Love this. Love you.

Happy merry 2010!

Well, that's because it felt like that was really in 2008 because of the election. But that was some inauguration, right? I still heart the president!

Merry 2010 to you too!
