Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas! I hope that your 2009 was as joyful as mine.


This is a scan of a card I sent to family and friends. Apologies if I don’t have your mailing address. Send it to me and you too can receive my Christmas card/letter next year.

This year has been all about traveling: Carmel, Monterey, Beverly Hills, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Vail, Washington DC, Beaver Creek, Napa Valley, Sonoma, Hawaii (Big Island, Oahu, Kaua’i), Colorado Springs, Breckenridge, and all the roads in between. I feel so blessed to have seen so many majestic places this year.

United Airlines just sent me a $100 voucher for flying so much or should I say for using my United Airlines Credit Card so much…

2010 is already looking similar. In January, I’m heading to China for 2.5 weeks to tour Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou & Hong Kong with a group of business school faculty from around the USA to discover how China does economic development and entrepreneurship. And yes, some days I do pinch myself to make sure that I’m not dreaming.

Some of my goals for 2009 got lost in my adventures but oh did I find the Bliss (#3 on my list).  I also got my PADI certification updated (as planned) though I have not yet been diving (oops). More about that in a few days as I set my goals for 2010 but at least I can still run a 5K in under 30 minutes.

I hope that your holidays are spent as your heart desires. Happy New Year.
