The countdown is on

The fourth and final Christmas occurred last night. I must say, the first and the last were the best. Maybe I just really like small gatherings better than large extravagant parties? But it was fabulous. I love visiting with my little brother and his family.

And now that all that is over, I'm packing up my things and going to Boulder for a few days.

I was just talking to a coworker this morning about what a year this has been. The first and second quarters were horrifying. And devastating. The third was a time of recovery and discovery and enlightenment. The fourth? Beyond my wildest dreams. And I feel as though it's going out on a good note. There have been so many lessons learned, so many friendships made, strengthened, secured... I get chills  every time I think about how much has happened, what all I've been through, the people that have helped me, the places I've been, the possibilities that lie ahead...

Here are some of my favorite moments from 2009...

Make an effort to go up and ski -- there are some great storms coming in over the next week. Should make for some great turns.
