thursday, january 1

…if i had to sum up 2008 in two words that is what they would be, beautiful ugliness.  yesterday was filled with reflection for me.  i was surprised to find a feeling of sadness within me as we said goodbye to 2008.  yes, it was a year filled with many challenges but how could i possibly want to let go of one of the most impactful years of my 29 year existence?  and after everything we experienced,that is how i will choose to remember it, as a year that has helped shape me into who i am as of january 1, 2009.

2009 promises to be a year filled with adventure for our family.  i am excited to share our planned adventures with you…in due time.  but for now we remain tucked away in our rsv free bubble soaking in the experiences of 2009 that are adali grace.  have i mentioned lately how precious she is?  i am itching with excitement to show her off to the world.  i hope you are just as excited to meet her.  

until that day, this little ditty of her ringing in the new year will have to do…


much new year love,

mama a           

thankful ~one thing that i was truly amazed by was the support our family received through this blog from people we know and those that we have never met.  i can't say thank you enough to everyone that supported our journey in 2008 and will continue to experience our journey with us through the coming year.
