It's 2008!

Wow that was fast. I can't believe 2007 is over. I hope everyone has a great New Year.

Every year I write down my resolutions with the goal of keeping at least 75% of them. This year there are going to be some big changes. Instead of doing a long list all I have to say is, I am going to try and live in the moment. Not to get too Oprah on folks but I really need to stop stressing out about the future.

Of course I will try to get back into shape, start/finish book number two, among other things. However, if everything goes by in a blur because I'm not paying attention what is the point?

I had a great trip back east to see my brother, sister-in-law and my two nephews (3 years, 11 months). My nephews are so freaking cute. My sister stayed an extra day so we could spend some time together. I am so glad I got to seem them before my move.

This is the first time I have come back to L.A. after the holidays excited about the New Year. 2008 is going to be great.

Saw your comment and I can't wait to read through your experiences. LA & NYC...hmm..two very unique cities, two very big cities. I've spent (and continue to spend) enough time in each to appreciate their differences, both positive and negative. At least you get the good weather out there. And the caribbean must seem like a break from reality. Stay in touch & I'll see you in Rome...

It sounds like a great start to the year. Enjoy! My New Year's Eve was spent with a wonderful Italian family, so I thought of you and all my other Italophile blog friends. Buon Anno!

Delina - thank you! I hope you have a great 2008 as well.

Chris - You are right about the weather. It's 71 today. I was freezing back east. My brother told me I was getting "soft" from living out here. ha. At least it doesn't get too cold in Rome.

jen - buon anno to you!
