Memories…

Can it really BE?!  Is it over already???  2009 was memorable for sooo many wonderful reasons.  We played hard, worked hard, and celebrated many special occasions. 

Some of my favorite memories include…

We hope  that the new year brings you everything you are hoping for.

I can’t think of a nicer way to end the year than looking back at what made it memorable for us.   Let’s join Cindy at My Romantic Home for a look back at her beautiful home in 2009, and visit others who have joined in on her ‘Year in Review’ party.  And welcome to those who have visited Mementos from the party!
