2007 was a great year!

A lot has changed in our lives over this past year!
Here are some of the highlights from 2007:

*Just got married to my best friend, Matthew Lovell! (Even though we had to continue living apart for 3 more months!)

*Packed up and closed my studio
*Sold my home, just in the nick of time! WHEW!
