I really cannot believe today is the last day of 2009! It doesn't seem possible that it has been a whole year already since Joe and I spent an insanely cold New Year's Eve in Washington D.C., toasting to a new year in front of the Washington Monument.
That day I made two resolutions - the first was to get involved in farm animal rescue and branch out from just dogs. That didn't happen. The second was to start a new blog and earn a little money by including affiliate links to some of my favorite companies. Well, I started the blog, but never started the money-making aspect of it.
So, another year's resolutions that went by the wayside. BUT 2009 did bring a TON of new adventures - mostly wonderful, and only a couple hardships. :)
Here is my year in review:
January - Inauguration of Barack Obama
February 1 - Ava Maria Spencer was born!
February 5 - Mason Isaiah Reynolds was born!
February 7 - Joe is officially a licensed chiropractor!
March - My first (and only so far) meeting with Mason
May - Heidi & Scott get married!
August 1 - We move to Connecticut, into a fabulous 2-bedroom townhouse
August 6 - Joe's parents visit and we meet long-lost relatives
August 10 - Joe starts his job with Grant Chiropractic
September - Ava's health declines and we fear the worst.
(But by October, she is on the road to recovery!)
September - My niece announces her engagement and asks me to be Maid of Honor!
October - Joe is inducted into the Connecticut Chiropractic Association
December - Joe & I make our first trip to New York City together...
...and the perfect end to a fabulous year - we get ENGAGED!!
Wow - what a year! 2009 has been a year full of new beginnings, and 2010 is going to be full of even more! It's going to be a great year! Happy New Year's everyone!
