2018 will not go down as one of my favorite years. It was a difficult year both physically and emotionally, but DAMNED if I didn't smile all the way through the little slideshow of pictures from it that I just put together. That's why I do it, and why I write here. While sometimes I write about the bad things, and the little squalls that blow through, more often than not I find myself writing about the many good times and people that are in my life, and that reminds me of how very fortunate I am. 


We may not have had as many house concerts, but we went all out with the ones we had!

Here is our 2018, house concerts and boys and food and garden and cats. It was a quieter year for Ernie and me, less travel, fewer house concerts, but the boys seemed to blossom, so all was good.

Here are the ones from the last few years if you have time to waste, as I seem to do!





One thought on “Onward to a Happy New Year

  1. Happy New Year! Here’s hoping that 2019 is a much better year for all. I know I’m hoping that for me. 2018 was a tough year for many.
    I’ll say your boys really blossomed, Leo particularly. When I happened to see him (gosh-a few months ago already), I thought he seemed so grown up! And isn’t it Owen’s bday at the beginning of January? H.B. Owen!
    take care-
