Endings and Beginnings

Just a few updates on how I said goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011. Wow! 2011!!! Crazy!

Julie took me for a surprise adventure for my Christmas gift. We rode the train out to Milburn, New Jersey....I had no idea why. Turns out she was taking me to see Les Miserables. It was incredible!!! I have the best roommate!

I had the chance to go home for Christmas and although my California really let me down by raining the whole time, I still had fun with family. One on my friends from Mongolia just happened to be in town when I was there.....I got to meet her wonderful son Christopher and her husband Keith. Chimge and I haven't seen each other for nearly 10 years when we were missionaries together. It was wonderful to visit!

Then for New Years Eve, David came up from DC. It's tradition now to ring in the New Year in Times Square. It's such a blessing that the crowds line up right by my apartment. We only have to run out in the cold 15 minutes before the ball drops and join the fun. No 6 hours waiting in a corral for this bunch. No sir! We had a blast and it was wonderful to ring in the New Year with one of my closest friends. Yay for David!

On New Years day, David and I went to trapeze school. Yep. That's right! This chick who is terrified of heights tried the flying trapeze. So grateful that my roommate came with us to support me and to document what could have been my last day on earth :) It really was incredible. They didn't ask me to join the circus but I still had fun!
