1. Me! 

this past year I went to college for the first time ever. I finished my first term with high honors! 

I am very proud of this accomplishment.

2. I Love You –my jabberwocky family

3. Still Laughing…
my brother reaching over the table to steal my niece's ice cream while she wasn't looking
which was actually pay back because she had stolen his glasses while he wasn't looking
and we all watched him run around looking for them everywhere for a while before we told him

4. Winter Wonderland – a picture that reflects Winter.

5. Birthday

Joe and I both turned 50 this year.

 6. Friends – our pal sal

7. I Was Inspired…
 –by the strength of Boston and all of the outpouring of love and caring from all the people across the world in the wake of such horrific tragedy on Patriot's Day

8. Spring Fever

easter, pretty colors and my birthday

9. Travel or Vacation
 we live on a rather tiny island and this is the beach across the street...we don't normally travel much farther away than that

 10. Summer Days – a picture that reflects Summer.

11. A Day In My Life

i almost always wake early enough to watch the sun crest up over the Atlantic

it is my favorite part of the day

12. All Smiles
the ones that make us smile

13. Autumn Harvest
bittersweet from the wood in Ipswich

 14. Family or Home

heart shaped rocks gathered when we walk the beach across the street
symbolize the love we have for our home and each other

this is the old coast guard station on the beach across the street; other than a few "fix-ups" it hasn't changed since it was built in 1898.

we found these one morning as we walked the beach.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
