This is my 3rd post in my year in review series covering July through December.
In July I turned 32, which I wrote about in song form and is one of my favorite posts. I also shared a few glimpses of what our summer was like. It was filled with country concerts, drinks with neighbors and lots and lots of time outside.
I shared what was good in life at the moment, in a post inspired by a Snoop Dogg song. I also wrote about where I grew up, in Life on a Rock which the title comes from a Kenny Chesney song ( see how musically diverse I am). And then I wrote a post with another song title and shared a Pina Colada recipe.
We spent a lot of time at the local playgrounds, exploring and playing. By the end of the month I was really, really over summer.
September was a return to school and to all things pumpkin. It is one of my favorite months of the year because life returns to it’s rhythm.
October was a tough month and filled with some really trying days.
November is a busy month for us and will always be a busy month because of Jack’s birthday being so close to Thanksgiving, so I didn’t write much in November.
Jack turned 3 in November and it took me till December to accept it and write a post about it. I shared my tips for decorating a Christmas Tree with kids. My favorite post of the month was one I wrote about my friend who was having her first baby. I also started these year in review posts so you can read part 1 and part 2. We filled December with lots of holiday fun including a trip to Dutch Wonderland, our annual Christmas light walk in the neighborhood, lots of parties and some Christmas crafting.
