Saying Goodbye to 2018

~~~~~
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

I'm not a champagne kind of girl. It's sparkling apple juice for me!


New Year's Eve is a special day to reminisce not only of the passing year but of past New Year's Eves as well.

When the children were young, every New Year's Eve, they would make a list of what they remembered best that year.  You can imagine what little children might say!  I've saved every year's list and I love to look back on them.


When I think back on highlights of 2018, I remember:

Adventures to Michigan (Mackinac Island), South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, and numerous trips to New Jersey

Meeting new friends and countless coffees and cupcakes at the bakery

Becoming a Nana again (baby due in June)

Gentlework finished ~ cards, blankets

My list of highlights is short and that's the way I like it!  I am a quiet peaceful life kind of girl.  I think next year will more than make up for my 2018 list of memorable moments.

2019 most likely will include a move, finding new doctors, dentists, etc., welcoming at least one new grandchild, making new neighbors and friends and finding a new coffee and cupcake hangout!

Any memorable moments in your 2018?

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
