Once again, I’m borrowing Vicki’s idea (Thank you, Vicki!) for an end of year post. The idea is to share the first line (or two) of the first blog post of each month and a favorite photo (or two) from that month’s posts. The words and photos are most likely not related.
It seems like ages since Charlie spent a Tuesday with me, and even more than ages since we spent the day here at home.
Sunday morning I had the privilege of hearing a sermon that moved me to tears.
What a difference a month makes, especially when it’s 25% of your whole life!
Hello April, I’m glad to see you!
I’m amazed a few of the photos are actually in focus because it seems like the last three days were a blur!
Hello June, you are right up there in my top favorite months because you are all the best parts of summer.
I did it. Stillwater is finished (well except for blocking which will most definitely happen today, I’m almost sure).
Today I’m looking back at July though the lens of my daily photos.
Hello September, hello blank pages, fresh starts and new beginnings.
Back home … but still a ways to be before things start feeling “settled” – at least on my part.
I met up with a few friends for knitting and lattés this afternoon.
Back in Alaska, it’s Saturday August 26 and the first day of our trip that we stayed in one place!
I spent many of the Fridays in October, November and December recapping our Alaska trip and shared my nine favorite photos in the last post. I figured I didn’t need to use up one of the monthly favorite slots above for any of those … but thought it would round things out nicely to have those photos here, too:
I’m finding it hard to sum up this year in a line or two. Suffice it to say, I am grateful for the blessings of love and family and for this wonderful online community that offers so much support, encouragement and just plain sanity. I thank you all and wish you and yours a safe and happy beginning to 2018. I’ll see you back here on Tuesday!

This is a wonderful recap of your year, Mary. I'm glad to have shared so much of this with you, virtually.
Wishing you all the best in 2018!
What a lovely recap! Cheers to a great 2018!
Charlie, Sam, family, and all those smiles are evidence of a wonderful 2017! Here's to a wonderful 2018, my friend!
So many wonderful memories to look back on — and those lovely, smiling faces! I'm very glad to have found your blog and appreciate all that you share here. Wishing you and your family all the very best in 2018!
A picture is worth a thousand words. Since I remember many of your photos, and posts, it doesn't feel like a whole year as passed, but it's easy to see in the pictures of the boys and how quickly they've grown! Happy New Year, Mary!!
Definitely a great year-looking forward to what 2018 has in store for all of us xoxo
I can see why you are always smiling. It’s a good life.
Love the review – especially the BIG smiles…those littles are really growing and Charlie's copy-cat poses are so great! Have so enjoyed spending 2017 with you (and your family ) and looking forward to 2018…Also so glad that you did the review because I needed to look up the "formula"and you saved me a bit of time…Thanks friend and Happy New Year! See you in 2018!Cheers~
