Happy New Year!

Soon it will be 2012. 2011 and all its ups and downs will be left in the dust, and we start again with a fresh slate.

As I look back on my first complete calendar year as a legal US resident, I cannot help but smile. We went through so much to get here – yet I feel like I have lived here forever. We have integrated well – we are settled in our home, in our neighborhood, the boys are happy in school, I have a job I love. The best part? Being with the KoD constantly. (and not having to drive six hours to see him every other weekend and contend with border crossing aggravation)

2011 was great – other than the surgical component. Praying for a happy 2012, a year of peace and harmony, a year in which HockeyFan will get accepted to the high school of his choice (we hope), where Lenny starts his last year in school (GULP), where Squiggy and ChatterBox continue on in their schools and do well.

Wishing you all good health and happiness for 2012!
