20ll was a year full of fun and surprises.
As I look back I realize that every moment is precious and how we need to savor them and have no regrets!
Here’s a bit of what I did.
I went snowshoeing with friends
I made a Valentine quilt
I organized my walk in closet

Last of all, hung my window decor
It seems the older I get the faster the days fly by. As I reflect upon ‘2011’ I thank God for my many blessings, which include the health and strength I have to do the things that I enjoy doing. This old girl isn’t going to slow down any too soon, God willing.
Looking forward to another year of fun and adventure!
Going to be a grandma again!
