Happy New Year All! 
It has been a rough one.
I am glad to see it go. 
My mom sent this
 email to me today.
It is her letter, from me to 2009. 

I cried really hard when I read it. 
My mom is so smart. 
And cute too. :) 

I hope you have a lovely evening! 
I'll be sipping champagne with Marilyn.
{well, with her movies at least.}

Dear 2009,
It is time for you to go now.

  You have been here for a year and
 it is your turn to move on.
  I am glad that you came to visit
i thank you for all of the lessons
 that you brought with you. 
 Good lessons that I will never have to learn again.
  Lessons that I can now cross off my list.
  You did a good job making me stronger and smarter and cuter.  
If being cuter is even possible. 
 And you brought some amazing people into my life.
 Please leave them here when you go.  
You also took some amazing people away from me. 
 I do not like that but i know that you can never take them from my heart, 
even though they are gone from my world.
  You moved some of my people around too. 
 Nice job. 
 I am looking forward to your nicer,
 kinder, more generous friend named Next Year.
  I like him a whole whole lot. 
 I am going to be very open to him and the
 that he is bringing to me tomorrow.
  I am thankful and grateful for you. 
 Tonight i will smudge you out and mr. new year in. 
 I will look at my bubbles and count my blessings.
  i will watch nice smoke take useless memories.
 mistakes and energy out of my window, 
so it can live in the phoenix heat. 
 I will celebrate ME and hug ME (maybe once)
 and cry for ME and appreciate ME for 
managing what you tossed my way this year. 
 Thank you for helping me to improve my catching and throwing skills. 
I will be so happy to see you go.  
 Taylor Kalander

My kid was excited to dress up in a working college admission assistance district where we lived we lived in a
flat in Notting Hill Gate and remains close to Cameron.
