This year had a few changes for me. I moved to a new town. It is this great, small, old town on the south shore of Long Island. All the houses in this town have character and there are these beautiful lakes a few houses away from me. I have been enjoying decorating and keeping with the character of my house. I even started a home decor blog with my friend, Shannon, who lives in the same town. The blog is not quite ready but our Instagram is up and running (Old_House_Charm).
I was very lucky to find an amazing tenant for my old little house. I was a little sad to leave it but it is in good hands! Can you believe all the snow we got last winter?!
I was able to meet up with so many more TpT and blog friends this past year.
I had a blast working at the 2015 Carson-Dellosa Blogger Summit. I always love spending time with these lovely ladies and the Carson-Dellosa team are the best to work with.
The TpT conference is always a blast!
I had a Tri-State Blogger Meet-up at my house!
GoNoodle ask me and my friend, Erica V., to help host a GoNoodle meet-up in NYC. It was so much fun. I got to meet Hot Dog!
There was a TpT "un-conference" in NYC this fall. I learned a lot and had a great time hanging out with these fun ladies.
I still teach first grade and despite changes in curriculum and the APPR teacher evaluation, I still love what I do. I have been trying to create math centers to reinforce the concepts in the EngageNY math curriculum. The kids love centers and they are practicing math skills.

I am trying to finish up my Winter set of math centers! But...
I really had plans to do so much more this week but life happens. My little man, Niles, passed on this week. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do but it was time. He was 16 years old, blind, had congestive heart failure, and his organs were beginning to shut down. I held him at the vet's office as he passed on. He was such a special dog and my heart is broken. I take peace in the fact that he had a wonderful long life.
Thanks for checking in with me! I hope you have a great 2016.
