the year in photos

i can say, without hesitation, that 2009 brought more changes than i have ever experienced.
it was all mostly good, but not without some rocky parts in the path. i’m happy that eric and i have gone through all of this together, and he has been my support.
i don’t really make new years resolution, i tend to wait and make goals on my birthday (which is 2.5 weeks away, in case you wanted to send me super awesome presents, heheh).

i decided to post a bunch of photos that represent this year.

after the race
i got really into running, and ran my first race. no, i’m not fast.

i started working on crafts more often, and re-learned to knit.
