I managed to fall asleep on the couch last night and wake up 10 minutes before the ball dropped in NYC.  I hope my timing in 2012 is as good!  As promised, here’s part two of my year in review.

In July, we picked lots of fruit.  Blueberries was our favorite.  Between U-Pick farms and our CSAs, we kept busy with fresh, local produce.


In August, family from Delaware visited early in the month.  Later in the month, the Connecticut clan visited as well.  The cousins don’t see enough of each other and had a blast!



In September, I was fortunate to take a trip to Hawaii.


In October, we hiked with my Grandma.


In November, Sally turned 2.  My grandparents celebrated 65 years of marriage.


In December, we enjoyed lots of family time.


Have a great 2012!
