Reflecting on 2008 + My NYE Look

Posted by Jane at 4:20 PM
for me 2008 was a year to learn a lot from it really wasn't one of my best years &it also wasn't bad but through all the UPs and DOWNs of 2008, i still would like to reflect on the good things that has happened for me this past year!

i went to the motherland after 7 years &honestly i feel the older you are the more of an appreciation you will have for background &for the things you have b/c a lot of them aren't as fortunate &you get a better understanding of what our parents went through to give us the lives we have today.
• my son had his first real hair cut -- he went bald!
(he had a trim after turning one in 2007)
i celebrated my second mother's day -- i love my son! (=
my son sorta learned how to swim (he still wears floaties of course) but he can go to the deep end by himself &i still can't! /=
my best friend, my love, &the father of my son &i celebrated 4 years of being together &i can truly say we have been through a lot in that time!
• we had our first family trip to san diego zoo + sea world (i took him to disneyland previously but it was just me + the in-laws that time -- the hubby had to work)
i started getting into the makeup scene + my crazy collection of makeup began! (=
my son started early education (pre-school) which is for him to socialize since he doesn't really have cousins his age but that will change w/ the coming year.
my hubby went back to school
my son turned 2 years old
my maternal grandfather (only living grandparent today) came back from the Philippines (he's retired)
i had the best semester in college this past fall 2008 (=
i turned 23 &i am healthy, strong, &beautiful
my parents celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary &are still happily married &the best grandparents ever i might add! (= next year will be their silver year!

..&i thank God for those blessings everyday!

there are many things in store for 2009 some we may know of &some will come in surprise but whatever they may be we can only hope that God continues to bless us w/ all the beautiful things in life!

now onto..
