1a) The birth of my first great-niece, Emma Rose, to Ryan and Erin Alexander!
1b) Alyssa and Jon's wedding! Perfect! Beautiful day, their love for each other so obvious, Jesus in the midst!
1c) Jessi and Josh's engagement! Ali's best friend since birth preparing to marry a great young man! Fun engagement party!
2a) Dance lessons starting!
2b) Being with sweet Mary on her actual 50th birthday! Yay!
2c) Having Jeff, who is like a brother to me, Lori, Chad, Kaitlin and Davis for dinner to celebrate Jeff's 50th!
3a) Spending the day at Carol's conference, "For this I have Jesus", and being filled up!
3b) A perfect Valentine's Day! Short day of work, appetizers and a drink in Del Mar at Sunset, Chinese food at home, being with my Valentine, no gifts, no cards!
3c) Taking a Monday off of work to hang out with Ali! Long lagoon and beach walk, lunch at Ki's, jacuzzi, dinner at Third Corner with Brian and Rebecca, frozen yogurt!
1) Accidentally being the first relatives to meet Emma Rose as both sets of grandparents sat in the waiting room. Greg and I are so sorry, Ken, Lori, Bill and Beverly. (Secretly, one of my "highs", but don't tell.)
2) Ali being gone 23 of the 28 days of February. But, we did get her for five!
3) Not enough time spent with friends at all of the celebrations. I'm considering adopting Lori's Westmont gang and Debbi's Biola friends!
