2006: the best year of my life

I realize that you’re supposed to write a reflective post about the past year before the actual new year, but I’m just getting around to it now. I didn’t want 2006 to completely pass without noting one thing: it was the absolute best year of my life!

My fianceeI don’t say that lightly. I couldn’t be any more appreciative of what a great year 2006 was. Two years ago at this time, I was absolutely relieved that the door was closing on 2004 because it was easily the worst year of my life from a personal standpoint as I experienced a few serious tragedies in rapid succession (though work hummed along, thankfully — I think personal crisis gave me some professional focus). Fast forward two years to 2006, and things are so all-around amazing I can hardly believe it. (I say this not to gloat as much as to offer hope to those for whom 2006 was a bad year. Time does heal all wounds.)

Best of all in 2006, I got engaged to Nancy, which still blows my mind. It is truly amazing what a great woman can do for your life.

It’s been a great year. To friends, family, colleagues, and others who made 2006 the year that it was, I offer a heartfelt “thank you.” Here’s wishing that 2007 will be the best year of your life.
