Closing 2009

2009 was a great, fun-filled year for me, despite the economic climate. Here was my Resolution/Goal List for 2009...think I accomplished most of them! 1. Travel somewhere amazing! And it must be outside of North America (I'm not going to limit myself to Europe alone, but that would be my destination du jour) Went to Italy and Croatia with my family for 3 weeks in the summer - CHECK! 2. Run a half marathon - this is the year! (I was slated to do another triathlon in 2008, but I broke my pinky toe - of all the bones to break)... Ran in the Seattle Inaugural Rock 'N Roll Half Marathon, in just over 2 hours, CHECK! 3. Save money for my own place...While I have a fabulous apartment, I'd love to have my own place, that allows pets so I can get a little furry friend. My parents helped me buy my first home in October 2009, CHECK! 4. Treat myself to nice restaurants, good wine, and not-so-practical-but-have-to-have accessories (every once in a while...) Went out to eat as often as financially possible, found a few new delightful eateries, CHECK! 5. Make more of an effort to get groups of friends together more often. Lots of memories, evidenced by lots of photos taken, CHECK! What a great year! Now I have to make my "goal" list for 2010... images/wisheskisses

Good for you! I usually just make one very small resolution, if any at all, because I never follow through :-/

I'm registered for the Seattle Rock & Roll Half Marathon! It'll be my first one. It's a goal I've had for about 2 years now. I'm registered officially, so no backing out now!

Happy New Year!
