2015 Blogging Year in Review

2015 annual report

With some help from the Jetpack help team, I finally have my Annual Report from Jetpack/Wordpress.  Somehow it didn’t generate automatically, but the admins pushed it through!  2015 was overall a better year, but again not without loss (two cousins on the husband’s side), and more uncertainty with husband’s job which is a rather big worry at the moment.  For the good, we had a nice trip to New Hampshire in the early part of the year, and another to Holland in the fall (that I still have yet to blog about, oops).  I had all kinds of photography jobs this year from band concerts to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, babies, families, and birthday parties.  Our dogs are still around at 12 years old, though they sleep a little more than they used to (but hey, who doesn’t love a good old dog who snores an awful lot?!).  I knit a little less, we homebrewed more, harvested tons of grapes and peaches from our yard, had some fantastic gatherings with friends and family, started beekeeping, and found new genealogical connections.

2015?  Not bad!  Looking forward to see what 2016 has in store for us!

2014 Blogging Year in Review

Year in Review

Here goes!  Click through to the Full Report from WordPress and you can see on the chart where I started Sepia Saturday because there’s a post (almost) every Saturday.  Personally, 2014 was a rough year – the loss of my grandfather, husband’s uncle, some uncertainty with husband’s employment situation.  I guess that doesn’t sound like a lot of awful stuff, but it feels like it’s been a very off year, mostly because a lot of the difficult stuff happened VERY recently.  Focusing on the good, we had wonderful vacations in New Hampshire and Scotland, went to and worked a beautiful wedding, I had lots of photography jobs, and our dogs are still in good health for being 11 years old.  There was knitting and homebrew, family and friends, genealogy discoveries and visits with relatives near and far, raucous games of Cards Against Humanity and lots of laughter.

So, 2014?  It’s been swell, but here’s to a brighter 2015.
