Ciao 2007. Benvenuti 2008.

2007 is almost over...it is hard to believe only a year has gone by since I last made resolutions. Where did the time go?

It seems like so much has happened this year, some good, some bad.

In late January, I got my little poochie. He has brought me so much joy and laughter, part of me wonders why I waited so long! But then I think, timing is everything, and it was the right time. I think having him has helped me handle a lot of the stuff I am going through now. We had one little hiccup when he ran away from my parents

During the summer, I had my first real houseguest, Natalia, from Australia. Having her here was awesome...we took a day trip down to the Monterey Bay Aquarium (with Stacey, and Luca), and then had an incredible weekend in Vegas. It was so fun to just enjoy Vegas, especially with someone who had never been there, and not have to work!

Before I knew it, it was time for the big Italy trip! A whirlwind ten days or so in Rome, Florence, Tuscany and the Cinque Terre...it was really fun, and since my return, I have longed to go back. I think about moving there almost every day, and wonder if it would be the right thing for me. Now that I have my Italian passport, perhaps it is. As long as Luca could come along for the ride!

Now it's the new year (I started writing this in 2007, and finished up in 2008...funny how that happens), and I am looking forward to a fantastic 2008. I have some things I need to deal with at the start of the year, but I think things can only get better.

Happy 2008, y'all!
