    Year in Review | 2018.

    Once again, I’m borrowing Vicki’s idea (Thank you, Vicki!) for an end of year post. The idea is to share the first line of the first blog post of each month and a favorite photo from that month’s posts. The words and photos are most likely not related. January Happy New Year! It was a quiet weekend around here.  February Hello February, I am glad to see you! March Hello! We had a wonderful vacation, but it feels good to be back here (finally!) April Sometimes Mondays … …begin with a few quiet moments and a heart full of gratitude. May It’s 80 degrees today …. with blue skies, sunshine and low humidity.…

    A Year in Review | 2017.

    Once again, I’m borrowing Vicki’s idea  (Thank you, Vicki!) for an end of year post. The idea is to share the first line (or two) of the first blog post of each month and a favorite photo (or two) from that month’s posts. The words and photos are most likely not related. January 2017 It seems like ages since Charlie spent a Tuesday with me, and even more than ages since we spent the day here at home. February 2017 Sunday morning I had the privilege of hearing a sermon that moved me to tears. March 2017 What a difference a month makes, especially when it’s 25% of your whole life!…

    A Year in Review | 2016.

    Same as last year, I’m borrowing Vicki’s idea for a year in review post. The idea is to share the first line of the first blog post of each month and a favorite photo from that month’s post. The two are not necessarily related. January 2016 The sun is shining, the laundry is done, the house is clean, I have two new knitting projects on the needles (one for “just me” and one for next week’s newsletters), a good book on Audible … and a blog post for this first non-holiday weekday of 2016. February 2016 My father’s sister Betty drove up from North Palm Beach Saturday morning. March 2016…

    A Year in Review | 2015.

    …I’ve been wanting to put together a post like this since I first saw it on Vicki’s blog a few years ago.  She shared her 2015 review a few weeks back and it’s been top of mind since then.  The idea – thank you Vicki! – is to share the first line of the first blog post of each month and a favorite photo from that month’s post. The two are not necessarily related. January 2015 I know it’s only the third day of 2015 but I already feel behind. February 2015 I just shared this photo on Instagram. March 2015 I’ve been enjoying Barb’s (mostly) weekly Sunday Sundries not…
