well, it's been real, 2009.

i always feel strange at the end of the year. good strange. i like to reflect and look at all the great things that have happened and the great things i've been able to do--- and now that i'm married, i look at things that ben & i have been able to do together. 2009 was our first full year of marriage. i can honestly say it has been completely fabulous and marriage only gets better for me.

i love my life and our life--- and even though there are things that i wish would come more easily for us (not in our marriage but in life)--- i understand that these things help us to grow.

so it is with fond affection and fantastic memories, i say goodbye to 2009. i loved you, but i know i will love 2010 even more.

oh and if you can, ring in the new year with a mini keg of virgil's root beer (or glass bottles of it). it is good stuff (as pictured).
