So long 2008?

Everything I'm hearing about 2008 is that people are eager to see it go. My mom taught me to look for the good in all things though. This may be the best advice I've ever received. So, perhaps it wasn't the best year for us, for our country. Here's to looking on the bright side...

Travels to Miami, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Montana, Arizona, Minnesota, Mexico, New York and home.

Orange Bowl victories and National Championship dreams realized.

Tightened belts, but a renewed look at making the best of it.

Celebration of five years of marriage in which I couldn't be more proud.

Struggles for answers, but now with renewed faith.

A niece who brings infinite joy and demonstrates the true definition of unconditional love.

The promise of change.

The love of family.

Loved ones who are willing to embark on a journey to protect our freedoms.

The ability to create with my hands and the guts to put it out there for the world to see.

So many wonderful friends and so many good times.

Sadly, friends who experienced the loss of precious loved ones, but have a renewed appreciation for those that are still with them.

Happily, friends that discovered that wishes for families of their own had come true.

Going into 2009, I've found peace, have hope and know love.

Happy New Year.
