Julie,
You are a wonderful person and looks like you had a great year, with a few bumps and bruises. I hope that 2008 brings you lots of joy and excitement. You have a great family, and I am so glad we are friends. If you have not been told today, then here goes "You are an incredable person" (to put up with Chad).

An amazing year for sure! That husband of yours sure is a cluts, though. ;-)
