I've been meaning to do this. It seemed simple. Choose 12 images, one from each month, that were my favorites from 2017. Maybe you share my pain and have tried something similar. How is it possible to choose 12 out of thousands of pictures that I have taken and edited to be my favorite? (Note: There may or may not be more than 12 pictures here, don't bother counting. ;) I knew this was going to be a time consuming task, but I didn't realize that I was actually going to enjoy it. Reflecting on this past year. How much the kids have grown, the new schools, the potty training highs and lows, the family vacations, the tears and smiles, the birthday parties full of energy, the stages they go through (trains to dinosaurs and princesses to heroes), the dinner table negotiations, the million hugs and kisses, the hundreds of books read at bedtime (usually the same ones over and over), the endless love. It's easy to get so busy and overwhelmed and not have the time to reflect and recognize the amazing blessings we live with. I know I need to do this more often!
