2010 Recap

It has been a while since I have taken the time to sit down at the computer and update my blog.  I think I just got over loaded with things that I had to get done and the blog was not a “have to” thing so it got set aside.  I wanted to recap this last year and saw this list on someone elses blog – so I thought I would see if I could answer the questions.  It was kind of fun revisiting all the things that happened last year.  If it wasn’t for my blog I would have forgotten a lot of it.
·         Best Memory  - Time with my family – never enough time together so when I get to spend time with them it is a precious memory.
·         Best Gathering – Thanksgiving at our house with all of my family.
·         Best Trip – Didn’t take any big trips.  Enjoyed the quick road trips to visit family
·         Best Project – Starting a monthly dinner group – it has been fun improving friendships, eating good food and adding lots of new recipes to my collection
