Is it really already 2009?

I can't believe another year has already come and gone. For us, 2008 flew by. We had a very busy and productive year. We moved to New York and back, vacationed in Boston, Cancun, California, and in New York. We ran races, started new jobs, went on road trips, and have spent countless hours on planes. We have created wonderful memories with family and friends. We have seen life lost and new life begin. Most importantly we have grown in love. We have had another year together where we experienced both happiness and struggles.

We are excited for the fresh start the new year brings. The world needs a new start. I hope this year we will all find a little more peace, a little more stability, and more love throughout the world. This year will bring with it a new President of the United States. We have a lot to look forward to. This year we will be visiting Hawaii, Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, California, and Las Vegas. Hopefully I will be able to persuade my husband he is ready to become a daddy. We got road bikes and will be participating in at least one triathlon this year. We are both still in the process of coming up with our goals for this new year. There are so many things we want to accomplish and improve it is hard to decide which ones we should focus on. Decisions, decisions. Anyway, we hope you all had a wonderful Holiday. We also hope that you have a fabulous and happy 2009!

On New Year's Eve my parents took us to "Smokey Joe's Cafe" in Hollywood. As soon as we walked in we felt we were a little out of place. We were the youngest people there by about 40 years. The average age in this place was about 70. The show was interesting but we had a good time.

After the show they gave everyone blowers and hats. We couldn't resist.

We got home just in time for the clock to strike twelve.

First kisses of the new year.

On the way home we stopped by BJ's and picked up pizookies for everyone.
