It's a lovely sunny Southern California day, going for a local hike right now. Moose and Bear in tow. Bear is always weight challenged. I try to tell myself he's just fluffy but when I had him shaved for the summer heat last year..... well, it was clear that Bear's not just fluffy, lol.
I saw the movie 'Marley and Me' last night, I thought it was just going to be hilarious, which it was but I so did not expect to end up crying my eyes out in the end, not fair.

It explains some things that are hard to put into words about Hawaii. I met Abercrombie in Hawaii, the cutest little politician you ever saw too, just so ya know. He's like a cross between Santa and Robin Williams, he truly has a twinkle in his eye. Cool that he knew both of the president's parents before the president was even born.
It was a trying year, 2008, loss and uncertainty at times for me but also filled with many great gifts, and huge personal growth. I will remember it well. And mostly smile.
Let this year, 2009 be one of deep gratitude to God for the love in our lives and the opportunities unfolding before us.
Hugs n Happy New Year Moondoggies,
