I asked Lil E to help me make a list of things we loved about the year we are leaving. What was important to him to include was funny and sweet and far less silly than I expected. He wanted books to be on there ("for sure!") and our time with my pistol of a nephew, Baby J. He wrote in the Not Boyfriend's move and school (that was my idea) and being off school (his, clearly).
Being together was all his own and I didn't even know it was there until I snapped a photo of the list. His scooter time topped the list but it wrapped up with news from our family we're happy to share (soon). For now, we will usher out this long archive of happy memories (and some prayers of thanks for making it through the challenges) by relacsing and drawing and adding on to a new post-it in the days and weeks and months ahead.
Happy New Year, kittens. May your 2013 list be filled with many funny, sweet and even silly times.
