Did you blink? 2017 was here and gone in an instant that felt like a decade. Each minute dragged on and on yet as a whole the year whooshed by.
I will leave it to others (like the great historian Dave Barry) to remember enough of what went on in 2017 to write year-end summaries and reviews.
I’m looking forward.
Forward to friends having healthy babies and sending me videos of babies laughing (not kidding—I expect a ton of happy baby videos, L).
Forward to weddings and anniversaries and birthday celebrations. And to spending time with the people celebrating them.
Forward to spending time with friends I haven’t seen for a while.
Forward to trips and forward to staying home.
Forward to reaching new levels in Word Cookie (it’s my new addiction—don’t judge).
Forward to an even bigger and better Cincinnati Coffee Festival. (Is that Possible? Yes—just wait).
Forward to the Olympics and Olympic achievements by all.
Forward to listening to the Puppy snore. (Cutest noise in the world.)
Forward to new adventures and comforting sameness.
Forward to spring, and summer, and fall (and not so much winter).
Forward to sharing others’ joys and finding some of my own.
Forward (with highly mixed feelings) to graduations and new starts.
