2009, i welcome you.


happy new year!! I had some stumbling blocks during 2008 but I am ready for a fresh start in 2009. I love the start of a new year and all of the excitement it brings. I am not too big on resolutions to but I do like to have some personal guidelines for the year with growth on some level no matter how big or small. I will share one with you, I want to take more PICTURES, I am not as good as I want to be and have a stronger commitment to it. I took this one yesterday, before I put all of the decorations away:

My sister and me saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and it was amazing! It is such an amazing message, I totally recommend going to see it! It is so touching and long (over two hours) but totally worth it.
We were downtown awaiting President-Elect Obama, I took these. It was fun to be at his present and future home. There was all type of activity there, camera crews, people, tons of Secret Service. We thought at one point he was there but it was his luggage, sheesh... It was fun though and when we got home I saw us on the NBC Nightly news.
