holiday and new year letter

Thursday December 31, 2009

Dear friends and family,

A few weeks ago our little house held 43 people and one dog during our 4th annual Holiday party! It was packed full of friends, family, and food.  I remember walking around and thinking, “WOW, I am having SO much fun.”  And also, “How lucky are we?!”  And I realized that life can be so simple when it’s about the little things, connecting with friends and family, and the everyday surprises.  So, dear friends, for us, this past year has been extraordinarily normal but FULL of everyday happiness.  And for that we feel so lucky.

Jake and I spend our days together, in our house — Jake designing and developing web applications, web-sites, and web-everything.  Anne, launching a new photography business, weddings, kids, and everything in-between.  Judy, our Border collie, thinks she has it bad, with no sheep to herd, but in reality she has it pretty sweet.  She is outside all day guarding the yard from squirrels, mailmen, and the black alley cat that taunts her as it strolls through the neighborhood.

We are incredibly grateful for our health and good friends that we see as often as we can. Our families are close (except for Ben and Becky who recently moved to Denver!) and we come home to Mankato to reconnect over ping pong in the Ingman garage and hot tubs in the Lindberg backyard!

We hope that 2009 was full of laughter and good news and that 2010 brings more of the same!
