Stefan: The new man in my life, he arrived last January 23rd and there hasn't been a day that we haven't smiled or laughed because of him. Happy birthday, my little man!
Abby: She continues to amaze me, thrill me, perplex me and make me shake my head in wonder that she is my little girl.
NYC: A girls weekend in the Big Apple and the Thanksgiving Day parade. I love NYC!
All Things Swedish: Abby has embraced her heritage, from celebrating Santa Lucia, to buying pink clogs to eating more Swedish pancakes. Malvinia and Gustave would be proud.
Vermont Again: I can still picture us living in a farm house in the Vermont countryside. I know my husband is reading this, so when will you say yes and we pack up?
Travel: I got back on my horse and road tentatively at the end of this year to Dubai and Egypt. But Morocco, Australia and more await in 2010.
Appreciation: As the year begins, tragedy of monumental proportion struck in Haiti. It really made me sit back again and think about how truly lucky we are in the developed world.
