2009 in review

Favorite photos from the year plus new December photos


Strict Standards: strftime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

2009 was a year of growth, birth, sickness, more growth, faith, fun, and still more growth. Looking back, it's hard for me to believe that 2009 was only one year -- a year's worth of of challenges and growth seemed to take place between July and October alone. Yet it all went by so fast, just like everyone always says!

Here's to a new year of peace, health, contentment, joy, faith, and yes, growth.
