saying goodbye to 2019

Oh, how glad we are that 2019 is over!

At this time last January we began packing up the kitchen, living room, dining area, pantries, closets and bedroom in preparation for the unexpected remodel.  We spent the winter living in the bottom half of our raised ranch (cozy and kinda fun).  And then, of course, there was the dreaded cancer diagnosis and all it brought with it.  Then there was all it took away:  a summer by the lake, music with the band on the Hill, time with friends and family on the porch, guitar lessons and so much more.

So… Hello, 2020!  I’m so glad you’re here!  

And I’m glad to be here, too.  A bit battered and a lot bruised, I am so very, very grateful.

A few of my favorite photos of last year:


Banjo Man and his brother GL overlooking Narragansett Beach last February.


Me having fun at the New England Patriots Hall of Fame in July.


Uncle Don and the Funny Grandson posing in San Diego in June.

Mystic Seaport Museum in September.


Breakfast with the grandson at the Magnolia Cafe a few days before Christmas.

Here’s to another year of more photos and great memories!
