2010 here we come!

IMG_5694

I can't believe its nearly 2010. It seems like this year has just flown by.

In this past year I've planned a wedding, reconnected with friends, tried new foods, planned a wedding, seen new places, celebrated being 1 year out from breast cancer treatment, planned a wedding, started this blog, planned a wedding, folded cranes, ventured to Sacramento and San Francisco, met all of you here in blogland and planned a wedding. I turned 30 years old. I baked and ate and baked some more. I purchased my camera. (it may have been a life changing experience) Did I mentioned I also planned a wedding? It really did seem to be the focus of the year. An entire year of preparations.

Then I got married. I married the perfect man for me. Oh we had such a wonderful wedding. Is it all just a dream?

I want to always remember where I am right now. I think I may be one of the luckiest people in the world. I also want to thank you for letting me share all of it. Thank you for letting me show you 984 pictures of my dinner. Thank you for listening to 2978 stories of my wedding planning (and its not over my friends). Thank you for letting me burst into spontaneous applause.

I realize that not all of you had the best year on record. I realize that this time of year isn't easy for everyone.

Whatever 2009 brought you, lets all look towards 2010 with hope and happiness. From the bottom of my heart I am wishing you all a very lovely (and safe) New Years.

P.S. I'm taking special requests for wishes to be made in the magical place called New Zealand. There isn't anything that feels more sacred to me than untouched nature. There is something about standing in the open and letting the breeze carry your thoughts and wishes and prayers away. Its invigorating, its sweet, its magical. You can always email me your thoughts and I'll take them with me as we travel...

  9. I love the thought of my thoughts wishes and prayers gently floating away on the NZ breeze! There is so much hope & peacefulness in nature isn't there. So much of God's presence. I'm so happy you get to be there & experience it! Thanks for letting me take glimpses into your life. If you could take along a thought for me it's that we'd all be able to feel many many moments of that peace and hope in the coming year.

  15. Lots of love? I don't know exactly what I meant there... probably not what it sounds like I meant... but then again, it IS your honeymoon...


    Sorry. I can't understand where these words come from.

  16. I've been so busy doing nothing much that I haven't been around to visit my friends in too long. So, though my wishes are late, I mean them with my whole heart. May your year be filled with laughter. May all your surprises be happy ones. May you remember to count your blessings. May you know each day how very much you are loved. Happy new year, my friend.
