The Year in Pictures

As the year comes to a close, I thought it would be cool to reflect on some of the highlights. And they are…

We admired the gorgeous cherry blossoms in DC.

Our home underwent a major renovation, which certainly came with its share of headaches.

We said goodbye to the best dog in the world.

It warmed my heart to visit with two young men my husband connected with on his trip to Haiti a few summers ago.

I published my first book. Successful launch. Visiting book clubs. Loving it!

We also visited Cape Cod for a soccer tournament, spent time with friends and family, enjoyed a weekend jaunt to Chicago, celebrated fourteen years of marriage, and spontaneously attended my twenty year high school reunion. It was a year of adventure, loss, reunions, and connection. Finding gratitude in and through it all.

Highlights of your year?

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Catch you here next Wednesday.

“We must not see any person as an abstraction. 
Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.” ~ Elie Wiesel


  1. Wendy: A highlightof my year was seeing three months work come to an very satisfying end. I directed our drama ministry's Christmas play at church. God was in it.

  2. Wish I could have seen that play! Glad it had a satisfying end. I like those.
