New Year

Happy New Years!
I rang in the New Year rockin’ to an 80s cover band. I don’t know if that indicates an auspicious start, but I was having a great time dancing to keyboards and synthesizers, so 2007 won't be all that bad, right?
I am not big on making resolutions, but Cullen and I did decide that we are going to find an organization to volunteer for. Other than that, I am hoping that 2007 will be calm—not as many huge life changes as 2006 had. Reflecting back, I think that 2006 was probably the biggest life-change year that I have had in my 26 years. Quick re-cap:
Finished school, spent two fantastic weeks skiing in Mammoth, moved out of San Luis Obispo (my home for six great years), said goodbye to many friends there, went to Europe 2x, spent two great weeks with my sister and her family in Eugene, found a job in NC, drove across the country, started new job, met many new friends, met mi gran amor, moved after 3 months of living with sloppy roommate, and now, here I am—2007 has begun.
2006 was a fantastic year, and I am so grateful, every day, for the friendships and love that have drifted in and out. My family is healthy, I am healthy, and we are blessed. Here’s hoping for an equally rockin’ (minus the synthesizers) 2007!
