I hear many people (particulary on the news) saying that 2009 is a year we all would like to forget. I disagree. For me, it was a pretty cool year! Here are the happening in no particular order (well, they started in a particular order, but the photo arrangment got all wonky).
Mike started his grad school classes.
Lola continued her reign of awesomeness.
I ran my first (and second) 5k race.
Oh, and Mike threw inhibition to the wind and dressed up like Raggedy Andy for the Raggedy Ann 5k.
I went to my first horse race (really, how long have I lived in Kentucky?!) :)
We bought a house.
Mike built a firepit and it was awesome.
I found out our house came with four hydrangea bushes, which made me a very happy girl!
I got to hang out with some fabulous ladies at SISiversary.

Cynthiana held its first Art Walk.
I wore a dress made of post-it notes.
I began my 7th year of teaching, Mike began his 8th.
I went to a grown-up tea party and wore a fun hat.
Mike put a bike trail in the backyard.
We became regular coffee drinkers.
Mike turned 30.
Mike and I became iPhone people.
Mike participated in the Bourbon Chase, a 200-mile relay. I, meanwhile, bonded with some fabulously-super ladies while following the team.
My picture was published in a magazine not once, but twice (the first was an issue of the Berea Alumnus, the second was BGE's Kentucky Living).
I got to meet up with some wonderful friends who moved away.
Two words: Robo Pumpkin. Okay, maybe one word if you hyphenate.
I was asked to be part of a most amazing scrapbook challenge design team! I so love these ladies!
I became rather decent at crochet, if I do say so myself.
I can't wait to see what 2010 brings! Have a safe and happy New Year everyone!
