It's time to look forward and make 2008 a good year. It occurred to me over the weekend that I had the ultimate high and ultimate low all in one year. The ultimate high was the birth of Owen on June 7th, the ultimate low being the death of my brother on December 9th. It's strange how life can change so much in 6 months. Luckily i've been surrounded by friends and family that have been there for all occasions, good and bad.
To look forward in 2008 i've got lots of things to keep me busy. I am planning a conference that will take place in May in New Orleans. I have never been there and so am looking forward to visiting the city and helping the economy (even as small as our associations contribution will be). I have also got plans to redecorate our basement. I'll be repainting the walls a beautiful shade of light gold, maybe finding some new art, rearranging the furniture, etc. I will also be converting our spare bedroom into a dressing/craft room for me. Since Owen was born we have had to be creative in order to find places for everyone's toys and clothes. Hopefully Ryan can come up with a creative and attractive solution for my dressing room. I'm looking foward to it. I got some new Amy Butler fabric for Christmas to help with pillows and even art work. Hoping to find some coordinating fabrics to add some color...i'll post pictures as I go along!
Happy New Year!
