A Mighty Fine Year!

New Years for me is always about reflection and looking ahead. Tied together with my birthday it is a chance to start fresh, make important changes, and be thankful for another year of life.

Looking back- 2008 or my 28th year- was kinda an amazing year!

I had so much joy

  • I discovered baby wearing
  • I started learning ASL and started sharing that gift with my daughter.
  • I left work to take on my greatest role- SAHM
  • I shared a wonderful vacation with my family in Hatteras, NC!
  • and one in Kansas too!
  • I celebrated Eliza's first birthday
  • and my 3rd wedding anniversary
  • I co-slept with a smile
  • I spent half the year Vegan
  • and tried to live a little greener
  • I enjoyed blogging on an almost daily basis
  • I started new family traditions
  • I read more books than I can count
  • I watched dear friends get married
  • and held newborn babies in my arms
  • I spent time friends- but not enough-never enough!
  • I rocked my daughter for hours on end- and cherished each second
  • I loved, laughed and lived more than ever before...

And a little sorrow

  • Suffered through Eliza's never ending sickness from day care
  • Lost a pregnancy
All in all I can say that 2008 was really FABULOUS!

and I am really looking forward to 2009!
