I’m taking a cue from Vicki and wrapping up my year of blogging in words (the first sentence of the first post of each month) and pictures (a favorite photo from each month) — the two are not necessarily related.
As I have for the past several years, I have chosen a word for 2018 and that word is kind.
Your mileage may vary but to me it felt like January just draggggged itself out longer than usual.
You know what’s coming up this Sunday, right? It’s THE OSCARS!
It was another whirlwind weekend of fun, campaigning and more.
I’m going to warn you right now – if you are hungry don’t continue any further.
This picture of the bridal wreath in our front yard is from about a week ago, the shrub is past it’s peak now.
I’m back and want you to know that we had an absolutely wonderful week in Maine!
It’s hard to believe that today is August 1st.
August was a really great month full of family and fun, vacation and good food, plenty of cocktails and plenty of time outside.
Sometimes Mondays aren’t just the start of a new week they are also the start of a new month.
This week on Three on Thursday I’ve got three random photos (with explanations) for you.
We had a super Christmas-y weekend here at Carole Knits!
I don’t know if you loved this or not but it was a super fun look back over the year for me. And it was really hard to choose just one photo for each month. I tried not to let it be All-Jackie-All-the-Time but I definitely wanted to choose a photo of people each month and not just food or flowers!
And with that I am taking the rest of the year off. Good bye 2018!
I’ll catch you all on January 1, 2019.

Have a restful week, and rejoice in this – no snow! Yet.
WONDERFUL!! I always remind myself that I’m choosing “a” favorite picture, not the “only” favorite picture!! Have a great & restful week…
It was terrific and th Jackie pics were just too Derr cute! The other pictures are especially good for remembering what went on last year!
What a wonderful way to sum up the year, Carole. It’s a delight to watch Jackie grow up here on your blog. (Such a sweetheart!) Happy New Year to you!
Great monthly pics! Happy New Year!
A lovely montage, Carole, full of the people you love. I’d say you did a great job!
Very fun recap. 2018 looks like it was a wonderful year for you and your family. And watch that little Jack grow and grow. Happy New Year.

Where did you get the holders for Mexican Train tiles? I learned how to play at my daughters over Christmas…….we all love the game.
Your year was a great one with so much happening, many changes, and traditions. You embody your word, Carole. Jack is a doll and I love seeing your whole family. Happy New Year!! I look forward to what you do it 2019.
