That being said- here is a snapshot of
The French Lick Retreat
I flew across the country for a weekend to share a room with 3 strangers who are now my friends. We had so much fun with a crazy scavenger hunt and a wild 80's night. I met up with old friends and made new friends too. I can't wait to return this year.
Spent part of my Spring break with our good friends showing them some of our favorite vacation spots in central coast California while doing some wine tasting
Went to New York in June to work with Scholastic again. I am one of 22 teacher bloggers who write for their Top Teaching section of thier website.

After my work with Scholastic, I extended my stay in NYC and had my husband join me. We saw a Broadway musical and did lots of touristy things. Of course my trip would not be complete without a visit to the Teachers Pay Teachers offices.
In August I received my 20 year pin from the school district,;Year my how time flies.
In August I was invited to be a GoNoodle Ambassador- I absolutely LOVE using GoNoodle in my classroom.
In December, we celebrated my grandmothers 100th birthday. She is an amazing woman; she still lives by herself, drives, bakes the best lemon merengue pie and will beat you at scrabble.
All in all I would say that 2016 had some great memories. If I choose to focus on the negative aspects, then I won't be able to remember all the wonderful opportunities I had or all the memories I was able to make with my friends and family.
This coming year I will return to French Lick- I've already begun to make my plans.
The year has just begun, the possibilities are endless....
I wish you a very Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!
