New Year’s Eve Post: Favorite Moments of 2016

As 2016 comes to an end I reflect on the year to remind myself of the amazing moments I had and I thought why not blog about it!  There have been so many wonderful moments throughout this year and I know next year will bring even more!

Some of my favorite moments of 2016 are…

Dates with my favorite person…especially the random, unplanned adventures we find ourselves on!


My son playing sports…especially his favorite—lacrosse


Improving my health by working out, eating healthy, and becoming a non-smoker


Nephew time


Dinner, shopping, and beach walks with my oldest daughter


Grandpa’s 90th surprise birthday party


Our Naples Cottage Getaway


Completing the program at SUNY Brockport to earn my School District Leadership Certification & being asked to step in as Special Education Supervisor for BOCES 2 ESY Program


Rome, NY visits



Youngest daughter playing soccer



Planting a Memory Garden on Mother’s Day to honor my favorite person’s mother

I challenge you to reflect on 2016 and create your own list of favorite moments!  Share a comment with one of them…

Wishing you a New Year rich with blessings of love, joy, warmth, and laughter!

I’m a mother of three beautiful children who have given me the strength in life to be determined in reaching my goals. I am a teacher certified in English and Special Education and truly enjoy going to work every day. I recently completed my requirements to become certified in school district leadership to make an impact on a much larger scale. I have had my fair share of blood, sweat, and tears, but the entire journey has made me grateful and appreciative of all that I have. One strategy I found helpful was to find something every day to be thankful for---focus on the positives in life! My goal with this blog is to do just that---focus on those “little” moments with the hope to inspire others.
