Happy 2018 !

 


Happy New Year!
Happy Monday!!!

We will start 2018 with a recap of
2017.

 
Started off the year with a light
dusting of snow.

 
Celebrating our first date and
Valentine's Day.

 
First sign of Spring.

 
 A pretty spring sunset.

 
Catching the Bunnies on the Plaza.


Enjoying our rose bush in full glory.

 
The day finally came, GARTH!!

 
The last nephew to graduate high
school.

 
Our first attempt at strawberry picking.
Can't wait to go again!!

 
Love a good garden tour.

 

 

 

 
Glorious day to visit the lake.
Though a bit windy.

 
My ULTIMATE favorite find EVER!
It has been so  nice to have this in my
kitchen.

 
Meeting  new Facebook friends
and sharing a meal.

 
Pretty summer sunset.

 
Going to a reunion. Seeing people
that I had not seen in 10+ years.
So fun!

 
Vacation days with Mr. Ken.



 
Meeting a friend/former co-worker for
rolled ice cream.

 
My fabulous freebie.

 
Celebrating Mr. Ken's birthday
with rolled ice cream.

 
THE BIG ECLIPSE!!!!

 
Time at the Toy and Miniature
Museum...

 
 
with family!

 
Annual trip to see the sunflowers.

 
A beautiful fall sunset.

 
Impromptu pumpkin patch visit.

 
Many agonizing trips to find the perfect
mattress match. Winner, winner I
think we found one!!

 
Spinach fest visit.

 
Halloween fun.

 
Birthday celebration.

 
Thanksgiving has arrived.

 
Trip to the Nutcracker Ballet.
So fun!

 
So many to choose from. We love to
come and see the Poinsettias.

 
Union Station was aglow with
Christmas finery.

 
The Mayor's Christmas Tree at
Crown Center.

 
CHRISTMAS SNOW!!!!

 
Got to see the new Johnson County
Museum. Interesting  to see things
that I did not grow up around.
Moved to the county when Mr. Ken.
and I got married.



Bringing in the New Year with
wonderful friends!


Wishing all my readers a fabulous 2018!
Hope to see you frequently for the new
adventures the up coming months have
in store for us.
