Greetings all! Hope everyone had a wonder Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2010 flew by but left behind some fond memories. I only expect more from 2011 and can’t wait to see what’s in store. My husband and I recently purchased a condo and we’ve been working vigorously to make it a home. It’s been a slow process due to unfamiliar weather that people call “rain”. (California is not supposed to rain). But everything is slowly coming together. Due to the remodeling, Christmas slipped by without a trace of pine needles and wrapping paper. We celebrated our one year anniversary (which also lands on Christmas) surrounded by family and great food. No presents were exchanged for Christmas or anniversary this year. The purchase of our home is the biggest gift we could have gotten for ourselves (not to mention most expensive). Here’s a toast to the New Year. May it bring us many great opportunities.
