Highs and Lows of 2009

I love this postcard from 100 years ago, thought I would post it today...
Pretty awesome year 2009 was - here is my annual High/Low list.

  • OBAMA!
  • I made a lof of books!
  • Juiced a LOT of lemons with Robin and laughed a TON during the process.
  • Started Manic Monday posts - I have so much fun creating these.
  • Easter in Michigan eventhough I was there for something sad, it was nice to be there.
  • Greece
  • "Meet me on the veranda" - nights that lasted into the morning with Christina and Angela
  • Lots of beach time with Tim
  • 35th Birthday weekend in Santa Cruz with Tim
  • Made my 600th post on this blog!
  • Beach House Weekend!
  • Malta
  • Gozo
  • Malta - Mom, family, food, fun, sun, sea, wine...
  • Malta - meeting Ilene from "An American in Malta" blog
  • Sara and Cam's wedding - getting to meet Aurora
  • Tim's Birthday celebration
  • Ice Skating
  • Advent Calendar attempt (better luck next year, we feel off the chain midway through)
  • Christmas in Michigan


  • Aunt Mary passed away
  • Guruji passed away
  • Michael Jackson passed away
  • ER Visit when I cut the back of my foot
  • Loud upstairs neighbor situation continued
  • Diagnosed with asthma and an "acute cat allergy"
  • Adoption process in general

Looks like the highs outweigh the lows, that is what I like to see. If you know of more lows don't tell me, I have obviously already let them go! I traveled a LOT this past year, ate a lot of great food and spent time with a lot of wonderful people and made a few new friends as well.

Any resolutions?
I don't have much, I generally make them on my birthday for the upcoming year. I do know that this year I am going to spend more time being productive making books and writing by booking time on my calendar for it and spend less time just hanging out at home doing nothing (God willing of course).

I like the High list, I like it a lot! It sounds like 2009 was great and it was great to spend time with you. Hopefully we can spend more time together in 2010. I love the Michigan pictures and the Christmas recap too. It sounds like a whirlwind of fun!
Love you,

That PINK donut in the header is incredible! What's the story? A strawberry donut? I want it!

Wendy bought me that donut when we went to Reno on a roadtrip in 08, you can't have it because its long gone! Not strawberry just pink flavor and sooo yummy!
