Although an adventure, this year has definitely changed me, as many of you have told me or noticed. It has been both wonderful and difficult as I have faced several challenges, experienced new joys, learned important lessons and turned thirty. I am really looking forward to the next important step in my life. I guess I am more grown up, and in more ways than one. At least I feel I am a better person than I was before, thanks to God and his endless patience with me, and that is what counts.
Some highlights of this last year were:
-Seeing the Olympics in Vancouver
-Cruise to Mexico with my parents and Kimi
-Autumn leaves and lobster in Maine
-Visiting my birthplace (Texas)
-Visiting family in Wyoming for the only non-windy days in history
-Falling more in love with Ben
-Family vacation in a mansion at Bear Lake
-Speaking at the annual Diabetes Educator Conference
-participating in the production "Joseph Smith the Prophet"
-winning a large check from a work drawing
-taking voice lessons
-keeping my amaryllis alive and even winning the race to get the first blooms!
