Year In Review

Last night as I was finishing up some Christmas stuff I started thinking about the new year. I got very excited about all that could or would be happening in 2008 and then I started thinking about everything that happened in 2007. I always try to look for the good, and though this past year hasn’t been the easiest – I started to think about all the wonderful things that came out of 2007! And shit, if life was easy all the time what would be the point of living it anyways. So after thinking about it I realized that with all the great things that happened and things not so great but that I learned from, 2007 turned out to be a really good year!

I am sure there are more, but these are a few “highlights” from the year. What are yours?

My Year In Review:

-T & I celebrated our 1-year anniversary!!!
-T & I have been in our house for one year.
-A bunch of babies were born!! Some new additions, but not all are: Macey Jo, Ivan Christopher, Colby Chad and Adelina (the newest…blog to come)
-We went to our friends awesome wedding in October and saw some friends we haven’t seen in awhile! ;)

P.S. Is it Year IN Review or Year END Review? Or doesn't it matter??? :)


  1. WHAT a great post, W.K.

    You have indeed had a very eventful year. I'm so glad that everything has turned out well... there's no one that deserves that more.

    I think you may have inspired me to do my own "year in review", too. GREAT idea. :-)

    P.S. It was great seeing you in October... :-)

  2. hmmm...i think i might have to do this too. :)

    a few highlights:

    - baby emma
    - new job
    - great vacation to disney world
    - did i mention my new job?
    - chopped off my hair and love it! i've got to think of more for my blog. :)

    thanks for the inspiration!

  3. YAY!! Please do this!

    I think we sometimes forget all the great things that happened to us or the people close to us and sometimes just remember the bad. I know before I had been saying 2007 sucked, but when I really thought about it, it was a REALLY GREAT year with just a couple bumps along the way!

    It feels good to think of all the things that made us happy this year!

  4. Awesome idea. I would love to do this too!
