This is also the end of the year. Tom and I had a great year, despite the economy and other events. I have a great job, and Tom found a wonderful new job as well. We travelled to Europe (a lifelong dream for me) and repaired our barn.
This is also the end of a decade. For me, this was a great one. It started off poorly with the painful loss of a boyfriend and then became worse with 9/11. But then I met Tom who I immediately knew was the love of my life. We purchased the farm, fixed it up, got married here and have settled into a wonderful life here. We have had many adventures here, travelled and cemented our relationship. So this was the best decade of my life so far. We will see what the next one brings.
