Goodbye 2008, hello 2009! Tonight is the night that we get a fresh start for a new year. 2008 was such a special year for me; it is hard to see it go in some ways. It was the first whole year as husband and wife for Drew and I and for that alone, I am most thankful. We celebrated our very first wedding anniversary, moved into a beautiful apartment and have so much to be thankful for.
I have heard several people over the last few weeks say "I hope 2009 is way better than 2008." Their 401k was cut in half (or worse), the economy is bad, gas is up and down. While I fully admit that all of things can be worrisome, why focus on things that for the most part are out of our control? We live in such a blessed country and are afforded opportunities that most are not. I have high hopes for 2009 but 2008 will be hard to beat! I will now step off of my soap box...
On another note, why does blogger hate me lately? I upload my pictures in a precise manner and all it does is turn around and put them any place it desires! Whatev I guess. :) I have ATTEMPTED to include some pictures of my fave things from 2008 but I assume I am at the mercy of blogger - we will see once this is posted. Some of the pictures may seem strange but trust me, there is always a perfectly hilarious story to go along with them. Others are just "things" that I fell in love with.
UPDATE: Blogger got me again...looks like the pictures are at the top despite all of my hard work.
As I mentioned before, I will be posting my goals for 2009 - stay tuned and keep me in check! I hope everyone has a fabulous New Year's Eve and stay safe! Talk to you on the flip side! Enjoy the Champagne.
Cheers to '09
