Here is is folks...that last Blogmas post I owed all of you that I didn't do when I was supposed to because I got too sick to do much of anything.
Before I start I suppose I'll share a little about what I did for New Years Eve.... it wasn't anything too exciting. You see, a special person in my life just so happens to celebrate their birthday on December 31st every year and so we did what he wanted to do (plus I wasn't invited anywhere else so good thing I had a party to attend!). We ate cake, we chatted, we said Happy New Year! We did it all at John's parents place and then spent the night there... because why not? The next morning we playd some games and eventually made our way back to the city. A low key time was had by all.
Now onto the review of 2015!
I broke it down into months and I realized something... I didn't have a terribly exciting year. But I'm going to tell you all about it anyways!
John and I started dating
I made my students some delightful valentine cards (they loved them!). To see what I did and to get the template to make your own just click here
