and so, this was christmas…
last night, after a very full day of holiday cheer,
i tried to capture the overall feeling of the day in an instagram post.
rather than writing it over again i’m simply going to insert said post here:
it was definitely a keeper!!
now we are in the extended celebratory state
that exists between christmas and new year’s,
wrapping up the old year before ushering in the new.
the good news is that i did, in fact, finish the calendar.
it didn’t happen in time for christmas gifting, but it will be
arriving before it’s time to turn the cover and begin the first month.
things have a way of working out.
here is our annual family calendar,
an encapsulation of life in photos with our herd this year
to carry over into memories for the new year:
and that’s a wrap!
2016, you’ve been filled with highs and lows
but overall you’ve been a very good year.
and now it’s time to look forward to 2017–
whether that means writing up resolutions, setting intentions,
choosing a word of the year, or putting on your high-heeled sneakers
and that wig-hat on your head to dance the night away,
may you embrace the coming year
with joy and delight!
merry merry and happy happy to you,
each and every one!!
