2008 Restrospective

No matter how many times I review the year 2008 and think of all of the things I did, saw, experienced and lived, it will always be The Year I Went to Paris!! On the other end of the spectrum, it will also be remembered as the year my beloved Curry died. My oh my, what a full year! Here are a few of the highlights to help synthesize my own memory ☺. In 2008:

What an awesome list for an amazing person. I love the breadth of what you gave your heart to, and I love even more that I got to play a part in some of these. xoxo C

A year indeed, of mostly sweet but some sour! And I was so incredibly happy to have been part of your year during the Paris trip. I've often thought how magical and ironic to see this beautiful city for the first time with a new friend from half-way across the world, when Paris is almost on my doorstep.
