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

Here's a glimpse from today's Tuesday with Charlie.

April 2016

I have two trips coming up this month and anticipate a good bit of time for knitting, but nothing too hard.

May 2016

I had the happy opportunity on Saturday morning to share this photo on Instagram.

June 2016

I think I'm going to start sharing these monthly collages less frequently.

July 2016

I spent much of last week knitting a new afghan for Sara.

August 2016

So, it turns out that finishing my sweater - knitting the second sleeve, a neckband (392 stitches of 1x1 ribbing!) and two pockets, then seaming those pockets, weaving in ends, blocking and sewing on buttons - took longer than I anticipated.

September 2016

Remember back a few months when we shared favorite foods our mom's used to make?

October 2016

I have a sense that "late October" is going to a lot different (Charlie's little brother is due October 28th, but Katie's doctor expects he'll be a few days early) - so I'd better document what's happening right now... right now!

November 2016

When my girls were young, Halloween was my least favorite holiday.

December 2016

Hello December, It seems way too early to be saying those words.

Thank you for sharing this year with me. It's been hard, but it's also been full of love, joy and family.

Wishing each of you a safe and fun New Year's Eve and a peaceful start for 2017.

This is a great look back on your year, Mary. Every year has it's ups and downs but 2016 seemed to really be a drag. Cheers to better times ahead!

I think we're due an uneventful, and fun filled year. Looking forward to what 2017 has in store of our family, and love that we get to do something the very first week of the new year-cheers xoxo

I think your selection of words + photos is just perfect, capturing for sure the year with its life changes and the strength of your family...and love that Charlie smile.
Here's to 2017!
