in thinking about how to write about my year i was stymied. its been rough. from start to finish. but i don't want to seem ungrateful. i always know things could be worse. i know how very, very blessed i am. i wasn't sure how to sum things up without sounding like a big, whiny baby. then emily's post about this year appeared in my blog reader. i'm stealing her format. i've added a few categories...
Theme of this year: loss. it hasn't been an easy year for anyone i know.
Best Month of the Year: august
Best Day of the Year: april 9
Worst Day/Time of the Year: april 26
Favorite Person of the Year: shawn. and not just because he bought me an iphone. he was supportive and understanding. he made me laugh and was ok when i needed to cry. he's the best. (lucy and sam are tied for second)
Favorite Moment of the Year: meeting kateri. we became friends at just the right time.
Favorite CD of the Year: vampire weekend
Favorite Movie: the fall
Live Show of the Year: she & him
Best Thing I Bought: i didn't buy a whole lot of non-supply things but these clogs rock my little world.
Favorite Trip: nola in june. so what if it was my only trip.
Book of the Year: the spellman files and curse of the spellmans. loved them.
Project of the Year: the fascinators. the idea was rattling around in my head for awhile. i just couldn't figure out how to make it work. and the prototype took a few tries. i'm thrilled with the end result.
TV of the Year: damages was fantastic. true blood was great. pushing daisies is a joy. but ultimately, obama's election night speech takes the cake.
Dessert of the Year: the bleeding heart pies. they were beautiful and tasty.
My Resolution for 2009: find the good. be like water. and be the change.
