Lemonade Life

Life is a Numbers Game

There are so many ways to recap This Year. I could do it by seasons. I could do it by months. I could do it by Important Events. Photos. Drawings. Music.

I did a rather nice Life ReCap in October. It's long and intense.

Here's a bullet-point wrap-up because I need to shower for The Party of the Year.
