2015 has come and gone and I think I only managed one blog post last year. How can that be? I am sure I can come up with lots of excuses. The big one being the word "go." I didn't choose a new word for 2015, but I think one was chosen for me and it was "go." And did we ever! We traveled so much with the husband's job. It was amazing! We made so many memories this year. Some great and some not so great (I'm looking at you "spending the night in the Detroit airport" and "flu in New York.")
This year we made a some great new friends and saw almost all of our old ones. We adopted a puppy after nearly 7 years of being dogless. My boy and I survived our first year of homeschooling and decided to take on another one. We had a great 7th geology birthday party (why didn't I blog that?!?)
Other than visiting family, we stayed home in December. We did almost all the usual traditions for our family and added a few new experiences. It was great! I will have to carry that around inside now that it is actually cold now and the twinkling lights are packed.
2015 was a year of us going and learning and trying new things. It was a year of firsts: first grade, first cookie decorating parties, first knitted sweaters (and second and third.) It was a year of finishing (mostly) the interior of this little bungalow that I love so. It was a year of celebrating and puppies and water balloon fights and bonfires. 2016 you have a tough act to follow. Even if we don't get the flu. Or spend the night in an airport.
p.s. Thanks to all of you who have commented on past posts or emailed to check in since I have been noticeably absent from my blog this year. I hope to blog more in this coming year, but even if I don't, you can usually find me on Instagram. My handle is thevintagejunky. Rumor has it the pup has her own account too. *wink*
