Just like any other “working” day, I was having lunch and browsing through my favorite blogs. I found an interesting post in ART‘s blog where she had a list of main events that happened in this year. I got this idea (or I stole this idea… ) from her and thought I will also sum up the main things that happened in this year so far…

2006 & 2007 were filled w/ many bumps  and I couldn’t just wait for 2008. Let’s see how my year went:

Married the love of my life and had a great vacation in India.

Looking back, yes 2008 was a good year for me unlike 07 & 06. I didn’t have big troubles through out the year instead I had a lot of happy moments to keep in my memory. Thank God!!!

For all those who had a troublesome 2008… don’t worry, let’s hope that 2009 will bring lot of happiness & smiles…

Happy Holidays!!!

Wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas.
