I’m really looking forward to what 2013 holds for the Rabon family. I anticipate more special times visiting with our friends and family. I hope to be a part of more special moments for our friends. I hope to continue to enjoy the common interests that Stephen and I share. I look forward to gaining more knowledge about cooking and about my camera. And mostly, I look forward to spending another year with the love of my life and growing closer to each other.
