Easy come, easy go

Money is like liquid in my hands right now. Yay and Yikes in the same breath.

I sorted out some business after work tonight that brought my spending total to new heights, but I'm trying not to sweat it. Ha. Hello new MacBook, new camera, new (misc) accoutrements.

I'm chillin. I'm rocking out to new tunes. I have that much-needed "refreshing" of my iTunes library--new year and all: TV on the Radio, MGMT, Samiam, Fleet Foxes, VHS or Beta, Grizzly Bear, Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem, Muse, F*@k Buttons, Bob Marley, Lady GaGa, and some other bits...

I was also reviewing my photos from the last year. They didn't even seem real. Looking back on them, I realized how amazing my collection of day-to-days have really been...

Satisfying MexiCravings with Jessica and Ivan

Swapping insider info with Nick, walking around POA

Tony and Paul at Palmeiras, "Really!!"

Making our own fun in Montevideo

Dancing nights

Champagne toasts with Ju and Rafa

Lovely Victoria's birthday bash

Connecting with Allison

One of a million nights of laughter with Lisa, Shelley, and Rafa (and Ivan, of course)

My cousins Amy, Luke, and Amazing Grace

"all the single ladies!"
Natalia and I cheesing again

Sassy Stacee and I ringing in the new year ('09) in Floripa

Fifi and Tati the night of the Michael Jackson impersonator (before that was a worldwide epidemic)

Eliana and Adri sipping with me at Lourival, again

Reconnecting with my Chicago peeps, Andrea, Gina, and Beth

...and Candy, Danielle, and Jill

Rick - sober in this shot - but I have others...

Dad and I goofing off in front of the mirror

"Out with 9 -- I'm all about the 10 now."

Ahhh, I am so fortunate to have this life.
This display is far from all-inclusive, and it makes me wonder how many wonderful memories I'll have next year at this time.

I got a feeling...
