When you have your first child you often use a Milestone book to record all the important information. Height, weight, how they develop. Some pictures of their first haircut, tooth, crawling, walking. I will admit I was never very good at that type of thing.
Now January is full of excitement.
The oldest daughter's birthday is at the beginning of the month.
The Finn celebrated a birthday. He turned 1.
DH and I celebrated our first anniversary. I made him this little stitchery project with some quilting. I must say that I could never believe being married to someone would be so simple. Somehow on this long and winding journey God helped me find him.
I decided to add up the number of books I "read" this year. OK maybe listening to them on my Kindle is not technically reading, but I get so much done. I posted about the feature on my Kindle here, so it has not really been a whole year that I have been reading books this way, but what a lovely way to pass the time while I am sewing. I have listened to some classics such as "Evangeline" which made me research about the epic poem and what it was based upon, discovered some new authors, and enjoyed some old favorites. I read/listened to 50 books by the end of December 2013.
January 29 was also my blogiversary! One year! 213 posts, and many new friends I have met along the way. Thank you everyone for joining me on the journey.
I know where is she going with this? Right?
I received in the mail the other day in a nondescript envelope-----drum roll please!
An AARP Card!
