I started my last day of 2009 with toasted country brown bread from Ken's, and a big bowl of caffelatte from my husband (Stumptown beans today--we rotate, based, largely, on what's open when we realize we're out of beans). I can't imagine anything more wonderful. Today I even spread Paysan Breton butter with sea salt crystals on my toast. I am so lucky.
Before I head into 2010 and resolutions, I just want to thank 2009. It was, all in all, a good year. My oldest daughter graduated from college, my son and youngest daughters went on huge adventures. I started my blog, and have enjoyed it hugely. My husband still has his job, we're all healthy, and we live in Portland. How lucky can you get?
If 2010 is as good as 2009, I'll be a very happy and very grateful woman.
