a list for last year

January 5, 2016

Every few years I make a year-end accomplishment list – it’s much easier than making a list of goals for the new year.

Best of 2015

Weekend getaway to ft. Lauderdale Fl with the most amazing man on earth. We bring home a shell from most beach trips. This bit of coral got all dressed up because it was such a special time to remember.JPEG image-B33B5C305D94-1

Joined my neighborhood quilt bee. Friends who also love fabric are the best. They also do things like actually love and use and finish all of those UFO’s from 20 years ago that I know I’ll never get to. I absolutely love giving away things to people who I know will love them.

Entered a few quilt shows and won awards at MAQF and MQS.JPEG image-DBC56C54B465-1

Spent a weekend with both of my grown daughters in UT.

Traveled to and taught in NC, SC, GA, OR, AZ, CA, TX.

Saw my wonderful in-laws in Tucson, my brother’s family in CA, and my sister’s family in Portland. I wouldn’t have been able to see them if I weren’t teaching. I love my job.FullSizeRender-19

Taught in Canada for the first time. Victoria, BC is a little slice of heaven on earth.victoria)kinard

Spent an absolutely amazing few weeks with my daughter in Paris and Greece. The trip of a lifetime!Notre_Dame_02

Spent many hours researching ADD (inattentive type) as well as depression. Spent hours with a couple of my children at doctors/psychologists/psychiatrists. One child is thriving and the other is still making it and has NOT flunked out of school. Whew. I consider these my most hard fought accomplishments of the year.

Since April I’ve spent between 10 and 30 hours per week serving the wonderful women in my congregation as the Relief Society President. I have grown to love these sisters fiercely! No matter how exhausted I am at the end of the week, I know I’ve spent it well.IMG_0859
