Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover did a one-photo-a-month recap of the year and I love the idea! January started out with a bloggie meet up in Ann Arbor with Mae of Mae Food.
A baking class at Zingermann's in Ann Arbor gave me plenty of great tips (and three wonderful cakes!)
In March, Rick and I celebrated 20 years at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY, where we also saw my good friend Cathy.
April brought the first visit of the season to Southern Exposure, my favorite creative spot!
In May, my friend Barb and I hosted our second Make-and-Take-Tea with these colorful scarves as the project.
June brought us trips to Myrtle Beach, where I reconnected with my PBS pal Maryanne and then to Banner Elk, NC for time with Rick's dad and step mom.
July was Rick's family reunion at Minisa, the cottage on Torch Lake that was enjoying its last summer. Good to be with family, even if the moment was a bit bittersweet.
August brought me a birthday and Medicare! It also brought art camp and my favorite piece from the week friend Kate and I spent painting.
In September Rick did a London Ontario-to-Vermont bike trip and I picked him up in Canada where we went looking for my dead Canadian ancestors.
One of the highlights of October was going to the Detroit Symphony with Kevin and Molly -- who, we learned a couple months before, are expecting what will be our first grandlittle!
In November I enjoyed my third art class of the year -- this time we made Christmas cards!
And December, Christmas. Christmas twice and with people I love.
Onward to 2017 and the wonderful experiences that await!
