I recall being in about grade 9, mocking my parents for staying in on a Friday night to watch “Dallas” when my mother retorted that I too will want to stay in on a Friday night when “I got older”. I tuned out for some of the “conversation” as teenage girls are apt to do, but then also recall something along the lines of her saying “the older you get the faster life goes” and Friday nights are a night to slow the pace down. A few decades later and as much as I HATE to admit it…..my mom was right. Life really does go by faster and faster with each year that passes.
It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my 2015 year in review blog and yet almost 52 weeks have gone by! In trying to come up a theme for the end of the year blog, I couldn’t help but think of a song that has been in my head the last several days “These are a few of my favorite things” from the Sound of Music. I find there are two camps: you’re either a Julie Andrew’s lover who loves the Sound of Music or you have no taste… I happened to grow up with the Sound of Music soundtrack blasting in the background on most Saturdays as my mom cleaned the house. I can still sing most songs word for word and I thought I’d take a play on the song, but instead of sharing my favorite things, I want to share the blogs that you, my loyal readers, enjoyed the most!
