Adios 2011, Hello 2012

2011 brought: the completion of 1 1/2 yrs of grad school, our 2 year anni, replacing everything possible on our truck, settling into the San Francisco life, embracing my love for all things asian :), pushing my sewing skills to new levels through a LOT of trial and error :), realizing I LOVE the art of pastry, falling more in love with Jesus through a different church than Grace (and loving it), glasses for me, knee injury for Jason, Jiu-Jitsu for Jason, climbing for me, sUrFiNG, trips home and realizing that home is slowly becoming this big, crazy, beautiful, broken city that we live in now, exploring amazing restaurants, hosting various visitors (moms and dads, cousins, aunts and uncles, friends and etc...apparently having an extra bedroom in SF is appealing to many haha), figuring out how to do this thing called marriage when there's little time for each other...and growing stronger through it, following a STRICT budget...and failing at it sometimes, Summer in October, Winter in August, making friends, loving our library, loving each other, life, and our sweet Lord.

2012 will (hopefully) bring: Jason beginning to teach (hello 2nd income), a M.A. diploma, a few cakes for me :), a dramatic decrease in the amount of traffic when I commute (I can dream right??? HA!), deeper relationships, serving our community and church, better stewardship, the information of a possible teaching position (if we go for South America their school year starts in Jan so the reality is that we COULD move as early as this time next year for a teaching position for Jason...yikes.  Not planning on it but we are open to what God has...), more reading, more cooking, organizing this crazy small house with all of our STUFF...I long to purge but Jason won't let me, haha, some thinking/deciding/praying on what it is I would like to do with my life...God a mom, but I feel the need for something...something else practical and compatible with motherhood (esp. when they're older), exploring the bay area a bit more, a snowboarding trip with friends, our 3 year anni in just a couple of months, backpacking this spring/summer, camping, surfing some more, a possible graduation trip for Jason...hoping for Italy...will probably be somewhere cheaper :), keeping in better contact with family and friends, focusing on what matters, loving all.  

So, here's to a great year! We have so much to be thankful for.  Have a Happy New Year everyone.

Peace y'all. :)
