Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all!  Bill and I spent a quiet evening home--just the two of us.  We enjoyed some pizza, sparkling wine and cheesecake for our dinner.  We went to bed early and were awoken to our neighbors shooting off fireworks to announce that it was 2013.

In looking back over the year, we had a lot to celebrate--Beverly, Chris and me reaching our milestone birthdays this year, Christopher's phenomenal success in college, Tom graduating and entering the Air Force, reunions with family members and old classmates and friends.  Our one sad moment was losing Ranger this year. 

I was also challenged by a fellow blogger to come up with my favorite layouts for the year.  Having done over 100 pages this year and each of them having a special place in my heart for one reason or another, it was a little hard to pick.  But here are my top 15 for the year.  Tom having such a big year has weighed heavily in his favor for numbers obviously but it doesn't take away from the wonderful year that Christopher had as well.  So here they are.

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse of my favorite layouts from the past year and here is wishing you a very Happy New Year!


  1. These are awesome, Shannon! I think my favorite one is Bill at Fifty Three. What a lovely portrait!

  2. Those are wonderful, Shannon! I liked them all.
