What with being on pilgrimage and all, I sort of missed the New Year. Then I remembered that a recap of the year in pictures has sort of become a tradition (2013, 2014, 2015). So without further ado, some highlights of my year.
This year, I spent a lot of time snuggling babies.
After 4 years (and 130,000 miles) of a very temperamental car/home, I got a brand new one!
I visited a lot of Saints. At least 100, I’d guess–that I knew of.
I fell in love with the Sacred Heart.
I visited Lourdes, Fatima, and Champion, WI (the only approved Marian apparition in the States).
I got dolled up for a few weddings.
I visited Spain and Portugal for the first time.
And finally made it to my 50th state.
I had lots of fun with lots of kids.
I dragged this suitcase to 8 countries (though only one cemetery, I’m pretty sure).
I made some amazing new friends.
And spent beautiful time with some old ones (real and fictional).
others to Italy,
and some on a pilgrimage a little closer to home.
The highlight of the year, though? Every minute spent with Him.
