It seems I start every single holiday letter with the phrase, “I can’t believe another year has passed.” This year is no exception! I’m constantly amazed at the rapid rate of the clock! It’s been an eventful year in our family and I wanted to share with you a few of our most memorable moments.
The Original 5! This is what we call ourselves in our family group chat and Marco Pollo’s. This has been one of my greatest joys over the past year because it’s how we stay in touch. I have one daughter and her family living close by, another daughter about three hours away and another daughter living in Madison, Wisconsin. Our family chats and laughs are never boring and it’s helped me appreciate these beautiful women Allan and I raised on an entirely different level.
Cabin Life! Whether it’s summer or winter this beautiful oasis continues to be our families favourite spot to spend time together. We love the water and sun in the summer and playing with my grandkids n the snow during the winter keeps me young! I am the only one swimming across the lake and back and intend on keeping this title… of course until one of these darn grandkids decides to leave me in their wake!
Daughter Time! My girls are all grown up so spending them with each of them requires a little extra travel and planning. I love to help them whenever I can and I love being the go to babysitter when they all want to take a vacation with their spouse.
Golf!!!I have a husband addicted to the golf channel in the winter and an avid golfer in the summer. I love our weekday evening golf dates and I’ve even improved my game this year! Mostly I love being outside and spending time with my favourite guy.
A Little D Time!I have not ever been afraid to try new things and I strongly believe this trait will keep me young and sharp. I have learned so much about running a business and social media in the past year. I have also been asked to participate on a public affairs committee for my church and it’s been amazing to find out that I actually do know something about this world! I also love my pickle ball, hiking group, morning power walks with Erika and through it all, Diet Coke has been by my side for yet another year.
Happy December everyone! All the best in the coming year!
