a summary of 2009

november - forsythe farms and montreal, again



december - sent out yummy mail for the first time

not to mention:
speaking in public to 150 people for the first time
running over a stop sign
writing a speech the night before
dancing the night away
overnight hotel stay with my siblings
event planning courses
all nighters
learned how to play "river flows in you"
new friends
numerous servings of humble pie

a new year is always a sign of hope for me...i would like to be the best version of myself. to be genuine. to be more generous. to be more forgiving.
sometimes it can be so difficult, but it is possible, as long as i always seek him and have more faith and trust in him.

happy new year everyone! may 2011 be another year of joy and hope for you :)
