2021 in Review

It's a cold [26 degrees], snowy [about 4 inches - first major snowfall requiring my hubby to get out the snow blower] day in Michigan today.  We went to church this morning and now we're happy to be in for the day.  I made a big pot of split pea soup with the ham bone from Christmas Eve dinner last night, and it was comfort food for lunch today.

Today seemed like the perfect day to go through all my 2021 blog posts and pick favorites for a Year in Review post.  So here we go...

January - A winter tea luncheon for a friend.

February - Celebrating my birthday with a Tiramisu Cake and a Valentine's Dinner for Two - hubby and me.

March - St. Patrick's Day Treat and Celtic Santas and Nutcrackers

April - Celebrating the Birthday of Queen Elizabeth, II [April 21st]

May - J.L. Hudson's Presentation at Independence Village, Plymouth, MI

June - Celebrating our 55th Wedding Anniversary at River Crab Restaurant

July - Last tea at Sweet Shalom Tearoom in Sylvania, Ohio with Amy, Sandy and Teresa.  After 20 years in business the tearoom permanently closed its doors in 2021.

August - Mark & Whitney's Wedding with Granddaughter, Isabella [Izzy]

September - Gone With the Wind Presentation and Autumn & Apple's Tea at The Whitney

October - Safari Tea Luncheon with Cousins and Dedication of our New Church Building

November - My hubby's 75th Birthday Dinner, First Snowfall of November and Thanksgiving Day

December - Reading A Cup of Christmas Tea at The Whitney and Christmas Candlelight Service

And just like that, the year was over!  Hope you enjoyed the review.  It's very quiet in blogland.  Everyone must be recouping from the holidays.  Hope you're all well and enjoying the blank slate a new year brings.


  1. I so enjoyed your Year In Review. It is fun to look back and see all the wonderful "happenings" and find they often center around FOOD! I did my review today too and it comes out tomorrow morning.

  2. Happy New Year, Phyllis. I enjoyed the Year in Review, too. Wishing you a new year filled with blessings!

  3. Such a wonder year in review! Lots of tea adventures and family memories in your year. The decor for safari luncheon looked particularly clever! Happy New Year, Phyllis! May 2022 bring you many blessings!

  4. Looks like you guys had a great time, and that cake looks delicious!
