Reflecting on 2008 & Looking Ahead to 2009

Wishing all my friends, family and new acquaintances a very Happy New Year!

We had lots of bumps in the road during 2008, but I was able to reach so many goals despite setbacks. In April I finally earned my bachelor's degree (B.S. in Marketing) after being out of college for about 20 years. That was my very best memory of the year and I can't even describe the relief I felt to have that behind me. And I finally started a blog, which I've wanted to do for a long time too, but never had the opportunity when I was focusing on school and my day job. Lately, I have been working hard on marketing my jewelry and have spent a great deal of 2008 being creative & making stuff, which makes me very happy!
Thanks to everyone for reading my thoughts and for following me. I really appreciate it and value all the new friendships made.

I hope that 2009 is a great year for everyone!
