I’m not gonna lie: I found 2017 to be extremely stressful. I am so ready to start a new year, even though I don’t think there’s much chance of the stressors abating, given our country’s leadership and direction…
No matter the difficulties life hands us, though, there are always things to celebrate. The four photos on this page represent some highlights in our lives in the past year (from left to right):
- In February Cecilia burst into our lives and instantly made them more delightful. Matt opened our front door to go out to his car for something and saw this kitten running pel mel past our house toward the heavily trafficked street that intersects ours. He called out to her, and she miraculously turned and ran to him. He picked her up and carried her into our hearts.
- Matt and I run a yearly computer security conference, and this year’s event was the largest ever with more than 600 attendees. We’re quite proud of this effort.
- I flew to North Carolina in November to spend 10 days (including Thanksgiving and my birthday) with my mom and brother. So much fun.
- On December 7th we had a beautiful Christmas snowfall. While this may not be a big deal to some, when you live in central Texas you count it as a highlight! I was just sad for Matt that he was out of town for work and had to miss it.
Of course, there were many other wonderful moments in our lives this year. And I am thankful for every one. Here’s (raising a glass) to so many more in 2018.
Happy new year, my friends!
