the last few pages...2008

364 days behind me, 365 un-lived days of promise ahead...

Here's a list of some of my favorite and most memorable moments of 2008~

Began the year with a 10 day trip with the Hubby to Marvelous Maui (Happy Birthday Honey!)

Stage plays in the city ~ Jersey Boys, Dirty Dancing ~ had the time of my life:)

Meditation with a Buddhist Monk in celebration of the Spring Equinox and Easter Sunday (this opened my heart and soul in a way I never imagined possible.

Got to see my FAVORITE performers patchouli twice this year. Check them out at They have a WONDERFUL holiday CD - Terra Guitarra - Santa brought it for me this year!

Nick's prom date ~ classic mother/son time

a fun weekend in Lake Geneva with my sis and girlfriends

My late spring stay-cation. Hubby was in Canada, son away at school, me at home in complete bliss.

Traveled up to Ashland, Wisconsin with sister-of-my-heart, Nans to participate in the Ashland Relay for Life in honor of Nan's sister Julie. I'll never forget that experience and can't wait to do it again next June.

Our annual pilgrimage to Big Crooked Lake in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. My Heaven.

The best night of the year - Vittorio Grigolo sings a tribute concert in honor of Luciano Pavarotti. A perfect night at Mil Park in the city.

Arranging for a "real cowboy horse" Laredo to surprise my little cowboy, Tyler on his 4th birthday.

Annual Fall Camp Out at Bong Recreational Area in Wisconsin. Perfect weather, perfect company.

Spending a GLORIOUS Halloween with my Grand-Beans - Tyler's school party, trick or!

Election Day - enough said.

As Ivy Baker Priest was quoted saying, "The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning." Isn't it a blast?

Happy, Happy New Year
