Happy New Year!

This year was certainly an eventful one for us.
Spent more than half of it pregnant... got hitched... my father passed away... quickly followed by Emma Cate's joyous arrival... several of my girlfriends gave birth to their firsts (or have conceived)... Hillsy finally said good riddance to the corporate world AND to the INS (he finally applied for US citizenship after procrastinating for many many years)... took several trips (Seattle, California)... survived our first domestic flight with the little one... refinanced and started a college fund for you know who with the monthly savings from the lower mortgage rate... Hillsy's broken heart slowly mends from watching England lose yet another World Cup... and memorable family visits from my mom, sisters and in-laws (who by the way couldn't get enough of Emma and decided to return for a second visit and is currently giving us the gift of sleeping in!)... I'm sure I'm forgetting something...

Apart from wanting to lose a few baby pounds I don't really have a resolution list this year. What I do have is a huge feeling of gratitude - I'm so thankful for both the people and things that are a part of my life. I've noticed that my wishlist for "stuff" has significantly decreased from past years - even Hillsy was shocked not to find a detailed Santa list on my blog this year. So here's a gigantor CHEERS to 2010 and to growing up (a little) and finally discovering what really matters. See you next year!
