Looking Back

On the eve of my 31st birthday, I find myself thinking about how quickly the year has passed and how much has happened...

I've become a mother. It's the most amazing thing to me.

I've learned to appreciate life more.

I'm healthier. In Jan 2008 I set myself a goal to lose 40 pounds. I made it halfway before my pregnancy and 30th birthday. Since Dylan's birth I've lost 18 of the remaining 20 lbs.

The downturn in the economy has actually been a blessing as it has given me an opportunity to take an extended leave from work so I can spend more time with my son.

I'm happier than I have been in a long time and I think motherhood is part of the reason - Dylan really does bring an extra bit of joy to my life.

I'm looking forward to what the next year will bring.
