"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin

Well guys, here we are on the last day of 2008 and if you're like me you can't believe how quickly this day has come. 2008 was a year of major change for me:
  • I planned my last wedding at the Chateau Polonez in early March

  • Left Houston (my second home) and moved back to Las Vegas

  • Had my second child (another beautiful boy) in June
  • Got hired as a Catering Sales Manager at Aliante Station (my first casino gig) in September
  • Created my acting blog in November
  • Joined twitter {www.twitter.com/brandiford}~such an interesting phenomenon
  • Started blogging about my second love~ event planning, in December {www.glitzandglamourevents.blogspot.com}

Looking back on 2008 I'm thankful for the friends I've made, the opportunities I've been given, the challenges I've overcome and most importantly, the lessons I've learned. While it's been a great year, I am eagerly anticipating the fabulous (and unexpected) things to come in 2009. And of course I'll be sure to post all about it!

So whether you plan to party in a VIP booth, give praise in your church, or stay at home with your family & friends, tonight as you ring in the new year take a moment to reflect on the great things that 2008 brought you and ponder the even greater things that 2009 will surely bring.
