Wrapping up the year with a lot of sinus stuff & cold yucks .... One Sentence a Day - December 2016 Edition

This is it - the final candle in the cake... a full year documented.
It may not be the most exciting posts, but I really do love looking back over them & seeing how my month - & eventually, year, how it all went down.
I'm someone who forgets so easily so its just fun to see what I was doing...
& love that when I start January, I can compare to what I was doing the January the year before :)
I'm a nerd like that. #sorrynotsorry

So here we December in One Sentence

1.  Trying to get Bruno to take pills requires Navy Seal moves & planning.

2.  Finished Magnolia Story & want to get that book for every one of my friends.


3.  Totally stressed out about health insurance where I didn't even want to leave my house, which I stayed in pajamas & did just that the entire day.

We'll see what 2017 holds every day....


  1. I love this idea! I actually started writing 1 good thing that happened each day & putting it in a that on December 31st 2017, I can look back on my year & be reminded of everything great that happened.

    I'm also dying to read the Magnolia Story!! Just need to get around to buying it.

  2. I love this practice. I just started the second year in my 'question a day' journal and it's become one of my favourite things!

  3. I think the birthday was the best way to end the month!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I love that you kept this up all year! Seriously impressive. YAY for a good month, minus sickness... and even more YAAAAY for a new start in 2017! :) XO - Alexandra

  5. So much to comment on but I can't get my mind away from the 60 --> 8 degree thing! WOW. Sounds like a great month!

  6. This is too cool! I enjoyed reading this so much. I got the Magnolia Story for Christmas and I cannot wait to dig into it, after I finish up the other three books I'm ready ha ha.

  7. A whole year documented, love it! I need to get cracking in magnolia story since I got it for Christmas. I feel like I always get sick with some kind of sinus thing in December. It always stinks right?!

  8. I love that you do this! Overall December was a great month for you, can't wait to see what January brings!

  9. Happy belated birthday, friend! I need to read that book! :)

  10. Just as soon as I pay my library fine I'm putting Magnolia Story on my hold list.

    Also, it must be so fun to look back year to year & see what you were doing. :)

  11. So much happened in December. I still can't get over the UPS stuff though.

  12. Yay! What a great month, I love looking back at what I was doing a year ago, too :) I want to read that book so bad! I'm just going to have to pick it up next time I'm out, wonder if they have it at Costco? hmmm...I'm doing the sentence link up tomorrow, link up with me! :)

  13. Your year certainly went out with a bang and tested your immune system, eye sight, memory, and patience! You survived it, lady!! Haha!
    I love that you can look back on a whole year with single sentences. Great idea! I gifted K the book of grateful sentence-per-day about him. He was so surprised!

  14. Once again I've enjoyed reading your Sentence A Day. I'm starting the year out with writing something short about each day and also doing my Question a Day book. Hope I can keep it up this year. Last year I made it into March or April, but then life got in the way.

  15. Your sentence a days are so great! I'm so glad you had a great birthday, and your drive home on New Year's Eve sounds scary!
