As we wrap up 2016, I thought I would take a moment to look back on the year and all that has happened. Here is my flashback of the year, using some of the captures from Instagram. Won’t you take a trip down memory lane with me?
This is from around the time the “No dogs on the sofa” rule went out the window….thanks honey.
More rare snow in Alabama!
After 25 years of living an army life…retirement!
In the process of house hunting, I found this inside a kitchen cabinet. I loved this so much!
In one of the houses I looked at today, I opened the kitchen cabinet to find the inside of the door covered with recipes and tips, including a piece of paper that had been typed with a TYPEWRITER on how to take care of sour dough starter. I love it!! Another thing taped inside that door, was this. I can't begin to express to you how much I love finding old treasures like that. It reminded me so much of my grandmother. Did your mom or grandparents have things like that in their kitchens?
I’ve gotten lots of funny pics of Duke in the year that we have had him. This is still the one that cracks me up the most.
