2006: Year In Review

It's that time of year again kids! To the unitiated, this is the entry where I review my year and pick out the highlights of my own blog entries.

I said in last year's review that 2005 was a year of many 'lasts', and as predicted in my New Year's entry this year, 2006 has definitely been a year of many 'firsts'. Marriage and moving out are the big ones, but there are other highlights. Enjoy.

January

Nothing much else in January probably because we were planning a wedding...
