2010 and I are Becoming Fast Friends

I am not very superstitious, but I am feeling REALLY good about 2010. I love the way it rolls off the tongue. I pronounce it 2010 (twenty-ten), which just sounds so "Science Fiction living in the Utopian future" ...

We kicked off the New Year in December by spending a week in New York taking in the Holiday sights. I have always wanted to be in New York at Christmastime and wow, it did not disappoint. Museums, Shops, Restaurants, Central Park and some of the most amazing architecture I have seen... New York was incredible.

Last year we took mini vacations to Hawaii and San Francisco... we are continuing the tradition this month, with a quick trip to Portland, Or. I have this major crush on Portland. In fact, if there was an ocean near the city, I would have packed up and moved years ago. My current Portland fantasies include an affordable but really awesome house in some quirky Portland neighborhood and a great place on the Oregon coast.. A cottage in some quiet seaside town. I would probably work at a college again, and spend weekends and summers at the cottage and the school year in the city. Today's fantasies are tomorrow's goals, so I indulge then wholeheartedly.
