I was thinking of doing some type of year in review for us, but then didn't come up with much. We didn't have anything too major happen this year. Simply put--it was a great year. We had lots of time with our family and friends, our work prospered, and Andrew and I are in love as much as we were in 1995 now in 2008. We love our daughters and have found great joy in our lives as a family. This year has been a year for finding some type of work/life balance and feeling that at most times, we handled it well. It was a year of strengthing old friendships and making some new, strong, and I think lasting ones too (yes, you know who you are!). It was a tremendous year for Heroes for Children, and one that I look back on with great pride for my growing organization.
I never did lose those 25 lbs I wanted to (they are right back on my rear end to be perfectly honest), but maybe, just maybe it will happen this year. I didn't learn to cook (one of my resolutions each and every year), but I didn't really try either. I kept my goal of leaving my computer in the office at least a few times every month, and Andrew and I made our goal of finding quality time for each other.
As for New Year's resolutions for 2008, I don't know that I will make them this year. I enter a new phase of my life this month, with both me and Andrew turning thirty in January. I hope this year finds more family time, success and happiness with my work, health for my family, and stronger friendships with those I am blessed to call my friends. Really, what more could I ask for? Well, except for the possibility of sticking to a diet and losing those pesky 25 lbs!
