year in review

January:
2009 came in with stillness, solitude, and a healing heart. I held this ornament in my hands and made a wish.

February:
I did something I had always been afraid of: appeared onstage. I played "Stacey" in the play "A Nice Family Gathering." It was soooo much fun!

March:
I celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a Guinness and took this self-portrait in my compact mirror.

April:
I visited one of my favorite cities: London. I've been there many times before and yet never get tired of it. Here I am by Tower Bridge.

May:
I took Leah Profancik's photography workshop, which was a life changing experience. Here is Leah's adorable daughter, Bella, who modeled for the class.

One of my two brothers got married. Here he is with daughters Katie and Ellen.

July:
That wish I made in January? It came true. I met Paul.




August:
My other brother got married. They're expecting a baby boy in May!




September:
I spent Labor Day weekend with Paul and his friends and family, up on their property in Mesick, MI. So much fun!

October:
I finally got to meet Genevieve and her husband, Jon, my friends from Australia. We had such a fun time in Manhattan together, topped off by a fun day with Laura and Annabel in Chinatown.

I turned 40. Goodbye, horrible 30's!

December:
I'm ending this year happier than I could have ever imagined. I feel so blessed and grateful. Here is Paul throwing a snowball at me during our first Christmas together.
