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 only for the beautiful photography but also the simple idea of sharing a short list of celebrations.


April 2015

Spring is here in full force!


May 2015

porch views (#porchview on Instagram) and park views - it's time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!


June 2015

holy smokes, how is it Monday already?


July 2015

coming to you from the Madison airport (where hopefully I won't have enough time to get on a first name basis with the bartender before Sara arrives to pick me up)!


August 2015

I didn't quite make it by the end of July but I came close.


September 2015

it's great to be back with Carole, who just returned from two weeks at the beach.


October 2015

Limited sunshine, too much rain and what felt like it might be a cold but was maybe just allergies and today is the first day of this new month - my favorite! - that really feels like OCTOBER.


November 2015

The costume was Katie's idea, inspired by one of Charlie's favorite stuffed animals - Henry the Fox.


December 2015

thanks to Sunday's deadline knitting (which I did finish - thank you all for your encouragement!), this week's newsletter and a long list of to-do's, I got myself comfortable with holding off on the holiday decorations until Friday.

  8. You captured some great moments this past year! Interesting to see the transformation of Charlie from a sweet little baby into a sweet little boy. :) I think I need to get in the habit of taking more pictures.

  10. I love the photo of Charlie with Santa! Oh man -- I remember those Santa visits. All I can think about is how he'll get a good chuckle out of that picture when he is older. :-)
