2016 is almost in the books, and I know for many people, we can’t move on to 2017 soon enough.
As I look back on the year, I’m grateful this blog has been a special way for me to document so many of the highlights of 2016. And I’m really grateful to all of you who’ve read along and have been incredibly supportive of my little space on the web — far more than I could have anticipated.
I’m looking forward to what 2017 will bring, but first, here’s my list of Top 10 Moments of 2016 (in no particular order).
Am I the only person who looks forward to the day after Christmas? As much as I love the meaning of Christmas, the spirit of giving, and the time with loved ones, I really love the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve — when the shopping, wrapping, and preparations are done, and the masses slow down. It’s a sweet time of year.
Before I fully settle into this beloved week of mine, I wanted to make sure I document some of the highlights from our celebration of Christmas yesterday.
‘Twas two days before Christmas, and yours truly had yet to finish her Christmas shopping or wrap a single gift. BUT — I’ve still got time to put together a little Mixtape post with some things worth sharing.
Yesterday we made our annual trip to the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden, which is something we look forward to every time the Christmas season rolls around. And as Jameson gets older, he seems to become more and more mesmerized by this tradition.
It’s Friday, and Christmas is less than 10 days away, my friends.
I’m capping off the week with a little round up of things that made the last seven days memorable. I’m hoping these meaningful moments might inspire us to live better stories. And kind of like that classic mixtape you’d make in middle school for a friend, I’m putting highlights together and passing them on.
