A Year in Review

I used to keep an end of the year list of things I had accomplished, experienced, made, done… you get the idea. I stopped doing this a few years ago.. but am returning to the practice.

So 2020 ..you brought a year of challenges. A pandemic, an election, a divided country.. a new way of living we are still coming to terms with and learning how to move through.

But here are the gifts and challenges and adventures you brought. In no particular order.
