After a record low of only nine blog posts in 2014, I have resolved to be more consistent in blogging in 2015. My kids are all gone today so I am thoroughly enjoying peace and quiet and the time to reflect on our last year.
1. My mom's funeral
Hard to say good-bye. Glad she's out of pain. Nice to see family.
(With my siblings and parents two years ago)
2. Keith's mom's funeral
Unexpected. Double whammy. Life well-lived. Very loved. Good to see all my kids.
3. Apostle Island Ice Caves
Amazing. Beautiful. Unexpected boon for our area - 138,000 visitors came to see them.
4. Cassaundra's wedding
My daughter, Kiah's, best friend got married.
Fun that the girls got married six weeks apart
5. My dad's visit
First visit from him in 17 years.
6. 30th Anniversary
Thankful for 30 years. Lost in the wedding frenzy.
Promised to celebrate later. Still haven't.
7. Granddaughter Cailin's 1st birthday
Adults don't change much in a year. Babies change alot! Fun to see her grow.
8. Kiah & Dayton's Wedding
Fun. Exhausting. Beautiful. At times overwhelming.
Thankful for a good man to love my daughter.
9. Vacation in Ontonagon, MI
Quiet, relaxing, refreshing week enjoying the beach, books, and each other.
10. House projects
Checked many things off the to-do list
11. Whistlestop Race Weekend
Christina and Anna did a half marathon. Dayton and Lani ran a 10K.
Glad someone's getting exercise.
Ate at Kiah and Dayton's. Yay, the kids can cook.
Worked myself out of a job.
Thankful for faith, family, and friends.
We have been so blessed and continue
to trust God for the upcoming year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
