...and what a year it was.
It's the end of a DECADE, but boy was 2009 an epic year. Death, Rescission, Pandemics, you name it, it happened last year. We decided to wait until the VERY END of the year to do our roundup. (Hey, we couldn't be too careful, I mean someone attempted to bomb a plane 7 days ago).
With this year came tragedy, anxiety, job uncertainty and infidelity...but this year also managed to pull something fabulous out of it's toxic ass. It brought us GLEE!
