Look! I brought you some jazz hands. You're welcome.
2009 was sweet and joyful; heartbreaking and disappointing. If you'll bear with me - and feel free to gag at the sweet sentiments - I've come to the place of knowing that if I was sad for a time this year, it's because I opened myself up and cared deeply for other people. I was engaged. And as painful as it was, I would do it again. I won't shut down. I won't let it shrink my world.
So, farewell to 2009. I'm ready to put her to bed and flirt with new opportunities.
Happy New Year, dear friends.
