2009 In review

I can’t believe that this year has just flown by! What have we done this year? I started this last year and thought I would keep it up, but change it a little bit – one year I’ll get it the way I want. So let’s get started:

Can you believe it, I don’t have any pictures from January? It was probably because this was when I found my interest in photography. I started visiting websites, reading books, going to the library – to try and learn all that I could on the topic and started experimenting here and there (I can’t believe that was a year ago). I also was involved in my hit-and-run accident on the interstate, experienced my first Jury Duty, and fell in love with Real Simple magazine.


Was a fun Valentines Day in which our love for Guitar Hero Band developed.

We went and visited Mr. B’s parents in wonderful Kauai, Hawaii – where I want to go back to again this upcoming year sometime. Enjoy some pictures….

Saw Jeff Dunham Live – it was fantastic!

Thought we would buy a house out in the sticks, so we spent quite a lot of time in the eastern side of our state.

We got our first fish, Xavier our Betta.

The only thing that really happened this month except for our mundane day to day life – was we got our Blackberry’s or as Mr. B refers to them – his blueberry (even though his phone is actually black, my should be a raspberry in that case).

Went back to Nevada and had our family pictures done.

We had our first Christmas tree, since this is the first year we have actually been home for Christmas, together. It is also my first REAL tree so I’m excited about that and am enjoying the wintry evergreen scent.

We played games and just enjoyed each others company. (I had to post that picture of my mother, as I love the natural beauty of it and that she has).

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and lets look forward to a new fantastic year!

    ♥ Blessings are every where in our lives every day there are little things that mean a lot and sometimes we don't even notice them until we look back on the day. Memories and stories, arguments and tears - all bring blessings into our lives in one way or another. I do this blog so I can remember those moments and find the blessings that were once hidden in a normal sometime meaningless gesture ♥

    if we pay close attention we will come to realize that no day is the same as another as every morning brings with it a hidden blessing - a sweet morsel to cherish
