Goodbye, 2017! Welcome, 2018!
So much happened in 2017.
But, I am looking forward to 2018!
These harder things will happen...
I will turn 50!
The baby of our family will begin her senior year.
We will celebrate the third high school graduation of our four teens.
And we will navigate new health and diet protocols as a result of some of the health challenges of 2017.
But... we will give thanks for so many blessings.
I wish each of you a very happy, healthy and joyous New Year!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I have exciting plans for this site for 2018, so I hope you will check back in!
I leave you with a little snippet of my 2017 highlights. According to Instagram, these are my top nine photos of 2017! Good memories indeed.

Happy New Year!
