HAPPY NEW YEAR!! – A review of my 2009 :)


1.01.10 – I just wanted to type it out…feels a bit strange!

We had a wonderful New Years Eve and I’ll recap soon. For now, I wanted to do a little review of this past year.

So, 2009 was quite a year! Not too happened, but the things that have happened…have been BIG things!

I’m not going to include any specific calender. I’m just putting down things that come to my head at this moment! Someday, I will make this blog into a book….or two or three :) So, I must document…as I do quite often you may notice! haha

Every color can be clicked. It will link you to a post regarding the topic or a group of posts that are designated in my “labels” section…If there are multiple posts on the topic they are in chronological order so, if you kept reading, you might eventually end up in a previous year!

2009 started out a bit rough but could not have ended ANY better than it has. Hubby and I are incredibly lucky and thankful and do not take that for granted!

Thank you all for being a great support & friend system!

I’m excited that mine and hubby’s life in 2010 (and probably forever & always) will mostly revolve around this precious being…

I will tell you this, 2010 started out with me feeling that little bambino moving :)

I hope you all are eating your black eyed peas today! I will try to get our recipe posted on Sugar & Spice later on!

I’m so excited that tomorrow, Allison, Kyle, Katie, Erik & Molly are coming to town for a visit! They will join us, along with the Jessica, Kyle & Lucy :)

More soon!
