2009 is Going to be Great!

2008 was a big year for us. We moved to Louisville, I got a new job, and we bought a house! Lots of big accomplishments for the Fasciotto family, and lots to celebrate during the holidays. We had a wonderful Christmas in Northern Kentucky with my family. We managed to see everyone we were supposed to see and go everywhere we were supposed to go without any trouble at all. It was nice to see family from out of town and as far as I know, everyone got everything they wanted for Christmas. I have some really good pics from Christmas but I can't get them out of my *new* camera Chud got me. When I do, I'll post them on Facebook.
After a week at home, Chud and I departed NKY for the lovely East Coast where we spent a few days in Charleston, SC via Asheville, NC. It was a wonderful, much needed trip. I'm so glad we got married right after Christmas, especially since we're teachers. Now we can spend lots of time with family at Christmas, then run away for some alone time afterward. It works out perfectly.
We had such a blast in Charleston. Our B&B was right in the middle of the French Quarter in downtown Charleston. We did lots of walking, ate lots of good food, and saw many exciting historical sites such as Fort Sumter and Boone Hall Plantation (where North and South was filmed, however it is NOT as historical as one might think - the place was built in 1940)! Alas, it was still beautiful.

Our favorite restaurant was hands down Magnolia's, a recommendation from Laura and Pete. We had our anniversary dinner there and it was phenomenal - best food I've had in a long time.
I also found the bakery Cupcake, whose website I've visited about a billion times. I made a few purchases and was very happy about it!

Chud took me to Folly Beach where we played in the sand and took some great pics. Overall, it was a wonderful trip!

Happy New Year, everyone! I pray that everyone's families stay healthy and happy this year. I'm also looking forward to some *new additions* to a few families, so good luck to everyone emarking on that journey this year! 2009 is going to be great!
