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!


I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  2011 was a fun-filled busy year for us.  Here’s a memory from each month.

In January, I started my blog.  I also started taking a fly-tying class.  Here’s a photo of one of my flies.


In February, Nick turned 3.  We celebrated with a bowling party.


In March, Nick tried out his new bike for the first time.  We were glad to see some nice weather.


In April, I turned 40.  We celebrated with a trip to the Akron Art museum and dinner.


In May, all of my siblings were in town since a few were running in the Cleveland 10K, 1/2 or Marathon.  I also had the privilege of going to Baltimore for the Fit Bloggin’ conference.


In June, our Wednesday Wade Oval summer of museum visits began.  Here’s Sally playing at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens.


Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 2!
