2008 Highlights (Christmas Letter Addendum)

Less philosophical, and more "what's happened this year," I took a trip down memory lane to remember some of my favorite happenings of this year...

My sister-in-law and I taking my mom to the San Francisco bay area for a girls' weekend. We had a great time, even though it rained.

Losing my job thanks to a layoff... again. Only really not minding it so much.

Finding out I was going to become an aunt, and meeting little Charlie in early December.

Receiving my acceptance letter to grad school at SDSU in May, starting classes in September and finishing my first semester last week.

Visiting great friends and hanging out with family on a vacation to the Midwest in May, and a personal retreat to Northern California in August.

Training for and completing my first 5K race in October.

Enjoying reading a lot, sometimes purely for fun, and sometimes because it really made me think.

Spending some quality time at the beach with my "second" church family.

The blessing of learning many times over how great God's love and grace are and how much my faith has grown this year.

God is good!!

  1. I thought to myself, "PSE has been out of the box since Christmas - wonder if she's redesigned her blog header yet?" Sure enough! Love the colors you chose (and it's one of my favorite papers :-)

  2. I cheated and used PPT again... true confessions, haven't installed PSE... yet. As for the paper, it was all about coordinating with the photo. :)
