Blogging Through the Year

Found this fun meme at D...'s blog, who found it at Patois' blog - so I had to get in on the action!

Post the 1st sentence (or 2) from the 1st post of each month of 2007 - I'm even doing links, like D... did! This ought to be a fun way to look back on the year....

January - "My favorite part of New Years is starting a new calendar. It's like a clean slate - open to all the possibilites of things I will do throughout the next year."

February - "Take a look at my new nephew!!! Isn't he beautiful?!?"

March - "Just got home from spending a wonderful week in my Happy Place - Disney World."

April - "Baseball is back, and our Houston Astros played the Pittsburg Pirates tonight at Minute Maid Park."

May - "Inspired by cjh, who was inspired by geek and 10 on Tuesday, here is my list of Ten Movies That Make Me Cry (this was not a stretch for me because almost ALL movies make me cry!):"

June - "OK, all you dream interpreters - figure these out!" (This is actually the 2nd post for June because the first was a Friday's Feast.)

July - "I got an e-mail from an old friend recently and she told me that she and her husband were getting ready to build their "dream house". That got me to thinking - what defines one's "dream house"? "

August - "Tomorrow morning - and Saturday morning - I'll be up bright and early for My Big Fat Garage Sale." (This, too, is the 2nd post of the month because the first was Wordless Wednesday - thus NO WORDS!)

September - "Not one but TWO awards for me this week! Wow - I'm feeling really special right now."

October - "That's what a cancer diagnosis is. A sucker punch. Life can be going along just fine and then BAM! You're battling a serious disease."

November - "Poor Thanksgiving. Now that Halloween is over, it seems we are headed straight to Christmas!"

December - "We're home from another fabulous trip to Disney World!"

Now THAT was fun! What a great way to look back on the year! Happy New Year, everyone - may 2008 be even better than 2007 for you!

Two Disney trips, two awards, a new calendar, a new nephew, and a big fat garage sale. You had an eventful & happy 2007!

The Astros are pretty much going to look like strangers in 2008. :(

I was going to comment the same thing! Two Disney trips and a Drew Bear! Beat THAT in 2008! :)

That is really cool - like your year in a capsule. But who wants to go look all that up???
