This is the first time in ages I actually held out till the last day of the year to show you my end-of-year video. It’s because I’m mature now.

I know most of you readers aren’t in my video, because we don’t ever actually see each other, but you are a huge part of this and every year. Thank you.

Happy new decade!!

    Happy New Year, everyone! What a wonderful video, June. There were so many pictures that I could mention, well ALL of them, so I won’t even try. I, like many, get misty watching, and who can explain that? I guess it is because you are part of my heart. Cheers to all of you out there, but especially to you, June!

    Lovely post, lovely June!

    I love the year end video every year. Thank you for inviting us into your life, for creating this community and for giving me a happy start to my days. You’re a gem, June Gardens!

    Here are some of my random thoughts:

    The picture of the two hair color boxes pushed together made me laugh really hard.

    Why, why, whyyyy can’t I be wedding Alex? She’s so damned cute.

    I saw Ryan. I did. 2020 will be the year of mature Jan, the one who doesn’t throw herself at Ryan, where Jan acts cool when she sees him. This year will be different. 2020 will be the year where I draw the line at 7 unreturned phone calls (name that movie).
