This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best! (William Arthur Ward)
Hard to see how 2007 could top 2006, but I'm certain it may. Let's look back at the year that was ...
I re-met the woman of my dreams, whom it turns out I've actually known since 1993, courted, proposed to, married, honeymooned, and had our first holidays together.
I sat on the Green Monster to watch the Red Sox with my Dad.
Also on that trip, Dad and I took in two rounds of the U.S. Open at historic Winged Foot, a taping of The Late Show With David Letterman and toured the nation's capital for the first time as an adult.
I spent quality time with my family, such as our annual trip for Gabriel's birthday, and Thunder Over Louisville.
I basked in the knowledge that I have the best friends a guy could hope for.
I even won my own Oscar contest.
My and Val's whirlwind romance included stops in New York, St. Louis to see the Cardinals, Jacksonville to see the Cowboys play, Tunica, Chickasaw State Park (twice), Atlanta, and Louisville.
I mentioned getting married, right?
