2016 is Gone, It's Time to Move On

2016 is now over and we're on to a brand new year. 2016 seemed to fly by for me. It was a good year, but it also had it's hard times. December was the hardest. The beginning of December started out with our 9 year old dog dying.
A week later my grandmother, who was 89 years old, passed away. It's been really hard on everyone, but things are starting to get back into a normal routine.

~Some of my special memories from 2016~

~In May, my family and I piled into our van and headed to the Oregon Coast for a week of fun, family time! It was just so much fun. If you want to read more about that you can see my post that I did on our trip here

~This spring I watched the 3rd season of When Calls the Heart!! For those of you who don't know, When Calls the Heart is my favorite thing to watch! :D My When Calls the Heart fun didn't end when the season did though. Late spring I had a When Calls the Heart season 3 marathon with three friends. Then in the fall another friend started watching When Calls the Heart for the first time. We discussed it together and I had a blast talking about it and hearing her thoughts on it! 

~In September I celebrated my 20th birthday! I don't feel old, but 20 just sounds old. ;) 

~Three friends of mine gave me a surprise birthday party! It was a really fun, special time!

~In June one of my cousins came out to visit for a couple days. It was really fun getting to visit with her.

~Throughout the summer I went to a water park twice, white water rafting, and swimming.

~I went to my first concert. I went because it was at a waterpark and I thought it would be fun to go with my brothers, not because of the group who was playing. It was Family Force 5. Not exactly my kind of music, but it was a fun night with my brothers.

~I was able to read 88 books this year. I know that in my book recap tag I said that I read 85 books, but I must have miscounted or something. ;)

I can't wait to see what 2017 holds!


  1. Great post, Rebekah!! :D I enjoyed seeing your 2016 hightlights. Still praying for you all with the loss of your grandmother. <3
    I've enjoyed When Calls the Heart and 'watching it' with you too! :D
    Hehe, 20 does NOT sound old... ;)

      Thank you so much for your prayers, Faith! It means a lot to me. :)

  2. It sounds like you had an awesome year, Rebekah! I'm sorry about your grandma; that's hard. :(
    I can't wait to see what 2017 holds, either! I hope your year is amazing! :D And no, 20 is NOT old. Neither is 18. *nods* ;)
