HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Where has the time gone?!? I can't believe it's almost 2013! I swear it was 1996 just yesterday. The Weather Channel released the top ten places to ring in the New Year. Drum roll...
10. Fort Myers, Florida
9. Maui, Hawaii
8. San Juan, Puerto Rico
7. Denver, Colorado
6. Los Angeles, California
5. Fort Lauderdale, Florida
4. Cancun, Mexico
3. Las Vegas, Nevada
2. New York City

While Louisville didn't make the top ten I'm excited that I'll be celebrating the New Year here. I'm thankful for all of the friends I've made since arriving in Kentucky and grateful for all of you - your comments on the blog, facebook, twitter, storm reports, and just popping in to say hi - I appreciate it. I hope you all have a wonderful 2013!!! Safe travels to all of you this evening...
