Bye bye, 2008

It’s been a good year… some of the highlights for me are, in no particular order:

  • Getting my 101 Things in 1001 Days list going.
  • Trav’s new gym habit, which will extend the number of wonderful years I get to spend with him.
  • Bleys did very well in school (4.0!!) and made it into Phi Theta Kappa honor society.
  • Tia journeyed to England… I’m excited and scared for her all at once.
  • We made some great new friends this year, reconnected with others, and lately I’m actually seeing people I know at the store!
  • All of our family & friends survived medical crises and just normal life, too.
  • Our customers are awesome… genuinely nice people who are good at business and always pay on time.
  • Gramma & Aunt Susie are here!
  • Frewsburg Gramma & Marv are here!
  • Steve got engaged to a lovely woman who we all like very much. Kathy will be a good sister-in-law.
  • Trav’s brother Mike did really well with work this year – he’s moving up in the ranks of the Navy.
  • This year’s Christmas theme of digital frames was very well-received. Each frame was personalized with pictures for the recipient(s), with plenty of room left on the memory card to add more stuff. I do so love giving meaningful gifts.
  • I’m very happy to be posting regularly, so I can share my life and keep in touch with family & friends (and whoever else might care!).

What are you grateful for, over the past year?

  1. I am thankful for much the same things as you. Funny how that works. I am also thankful for you putting up with me for yet another year! ;)
    I love the way we keep staying with the picture theme. We have done a lot of picture gifts over the years, and I think it is a great way to stay connected with our families that are so spread out. So I am thankful for you being so interested in taking pictures and keeping them organized and well culled.
    I love you and look forward to many years with you, so hope you continue to workout!
    Love you! Happy New Year!
    Trav

  2. Hugs to you both — why oh why is there not another guy like Travis around for me? sigh — HAPPY NEW YEAR – less than a year til I come scare you good!

    hugs – B
