Welcome 2008

Brad and I were recalling past New Years and realized that this is the 5th one we've watched come in together. This time of year holds some of our most special memories from dating. Our first date was to a Michael W. Smith concert, the Christmastime tour. We went on several other dates between then and when we went our separate ways for the Christmas holidays, but our first big meet up was to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends at Lake Texoma. Sweet memories!

Our 2nd NYE--the last one before we married--we were in Corsicana, shooting fireworks with my family. It was cold outside! The next year we celebrated a new year at the Mansion on Turtle Creek along with a chocolate bag from McCormick & Schmick. The past two years we've spent at home with friends, which is a lovely way to ring in the new year, in my opinion.

I love a new year. It brings with it many possibilities--an open canvas, really. We shall see what God chooses to paint over the next span of 365 days. It's an opportunity to set new commitments (not resolutions) and really reach them this time.

But for now, my husband just brought me breakfast in bed. If that isn't a way to start off a new year, then I don't know what is. I hope you have a terrific 2008!
