Happy New Year from DianeCA

Well my friends its been awhile since I last blogged. I am sorry to have been away so long. The last part of 2010 has been tough and I have been overworked and tired much of the time. It’s hard to find your motivation when you are dead tired….but I am still here.

Happy New Year 2011

Happy New Year 2011

2010 has been a year to remember. A lot of great things happened in our lives this year. We had of course Oslo Blog Gathering. A dream which was born in 2009 and took a whole year to come to a reality, and it was worth it! We had a really great time and met really wonderful people. People who were just as nice and interesting as I had imagined them to be, and in many ways it was more like getting together with good old friends then meeting new people. In the fall as many have read, we evened ventured all the way to Portugal to meet up with Lele Betita again and experience the fair city of Lisbon with her and her husbands warm guidance.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

There have been other travels this year as well, we were in Bucharest in the spring, and Brussels in the fall, not to mention countless trips to Sweden. We have had many guests too, among others my dear old Dad and his wife Teri came to visit us this summer and spent some good times with the family.

I want to thank all my good friends for being with me throughout the year for sharing the laughter and sometimes the tears. Without my friends and my family the old year and the New Year would have no meaning. Because time is just a physical calculation, a forward movement of our lives. What really matters is what you choose to fill that time with, and most of all I choose to fill my time with people. People I love, people I help, people I enjoy being with – there are almost none which don’t fall into those categories, and well that is something to be thankful for too.

Happy New Year everyone. May 2011 bring you happiness, wealth and wisdom – and most of all good people to share it all with!
