Happy New Year one and all!
I hope all of you have had a relaxing and healthy holiday and are ready to begin another year full of fun, surprises, success and, most of all, good health.
I had a wonderful time over the Christmas season and am happy to announce that my younger daughter, Maria, announced her engagement to a wonderful young man. As you can well imagine, we are very excited here and that explains my lack of presence on the MCL site. We have been very busy booking venues for the ceremony and reception, the photographer, the musicians etc. I think we have done all we can do – for the moment. Ha!
And, of course, I am all geared up for the American Idol Season 8 premiere next week. I believe the start date is January 13th, 2009 and the show is offering a new format this season. Plus, we cannot forget about the new judge added to the triumvirate of Paula, Simon and Randy – Kara DioGuardi.
However, I am anxiously waiting to view the historical Presidential American Inauguration on January 20th, 2009, starring President-Elect, Barack Obama. Just typing this man’s name, I get goosebumps. What an exciting time for Americans and for the world. This man will change the course of history; there will be “bumps” along the way, but, certainly this wonderful and talented man has the capability, skill, drive and determination to weather any storm and circumvent any obstacle.
Please add your comments – what made your holiday special for you. What are you looking forward to in 2009? Any resolutions? Please share!
