It’s going to be a good one, I can tell. We were so lucky to be invited to our friends’ cabin on a lake in the woods. We built a fire and baked cookies and drank wine and watched the boys wreak havoc. Is there a better way to ring in a new year?

I am hopeful and optimistic about this year. There are so many good things to enjoy in just this first month:

– NFL playoffs (go Steelers)

– the inauguration of Mr. Barack Obama. I can not wait to celebrate this. 

– snowstorms (fingers crossed)

– our new truck (thank you again and again, DPMF)

– the 36th birthday of my awesome husband

I hope that I can find some time to fit in some painting and collaging and illustrating!

Happy 2009 to all of you.
