A good portion of my life has been spent playing the piano for everyone else's diva moments. Now it's my turn. I invite you to accompany ME through my life's diva and, well, not so diva-like moments. It'll be entertaining. Promise.

We had a great 2009!! We are blessed in so many ways, but as I looked through these pictures I thought about how blessed I am to have my little family - they are the joy of my life. I love the kind, supportive, hard-working husband I have and I love watching my two beautiful children change and grow and learn. Heavenly Father sure knew what He was doing when He designed the family unit. I am so grateful for them. Here's to another year full of good times and memory making!


  1. Happy New Year! I'm glad I got to reconnect with you this last year.

  2. Love the year in review! I might do that myself! Sorry I missed you guys New Years Eve, I showed up much later.

  3. Dakadikada! Loved it! What a great idea. I liked that it was one of the hottest summers and one of the coldest winters. Nice! Can't strike a happy medium huh! 6 months! Let the countdown begin.
