A Retrospective Look at 2008

I know, I know, totally unoriginal to do the obligatory round up/wrap up post. But it’s fun and I loved scrolling through the archives and reading back through the last year.

I’ve picked a post from each month that either I think is my best, is part of a favorite memory or just spoke to me.  I hope you’ll take a few minutes and re-visit 2008 with me before we leap into 2009.

January – Granny

February – The Squat and Wiggle

March – A Stranger’s Power

April –  Manic Mom Dash: Naked in Target

May – Mother’s Day or The Day The Vagina Nearly Wrecked the Car

June – Seven, I’ll Take Seventy

July – When Daddy Puts Monkey Down

August – Shades of A Memory

September – The Hidden Me

October – Notes From a Garage Sale

November – Happy Birthday Bebe

December – The Christmas Eve Story

I had planned on doing the year in pictures like her but before I got my new camera my picture organization was junk. So that’s something for 2009, picture organization.

So here is one of my favorite pictures of 2008.

It is one of my favorites because I think it embodies all that is Princess.  Reckless, powerful, trusting, exuberant and taking life head on with no reservations or insecurities.

Blessings, love, laughter, peace, health,happiness, joy, faith, friends, family and all your heart’s desires.

That is what I wish for you and yours for 2009.
