I Hate To Say Goodbye, But I Love To Watch You Walk Away...

Dear 2009,

Just a wee note to say goodbye. I enjoyed every last minute with you, you were the year I got my nerve back, my confidence donned a bonnet and started to dance, on the inside mostly, but dancing none the less. I had many adventures, saw so many new places and took chances, not all of it worked out how I would have liked, but what do you know, I'm still standing.

I hate to replace you, but 2010 is just around the corner, tempting me and trying to steal me away like a new best friend in the playground. But before we part, it's important to me that you know you are special, of all the years in recent memory, you are my favourite. You got me writing, travelling and taking chances again and for that, you will be forever treasured.

Mostly, you really taught me to not look back, to always look forward and so, I say adieu...

Yours sincerely,


  1. Happy New Year...hope 2010 brings you lots of what was great about 2009 and more letters for us...

  2. oh indeed! go forward and look up and do it with red shoes and a smile if you can... Go well into 2010/.

  3. Your letters bring tears to my eyes! My 8 year old son misses 2009 too.
