The January Challenge at "SCRAP-CHALLENGE-YOURSELF" is to make a layout about your favorite memory of 2020. Plus as always to include a picture of yourself on your layout.
Well for most of us 2020 probably wasn't the best year we have had because of COVID-19 and the shutdowns etc. etc. That definitely effected me. first let down was knowing my brother and I had to cancel a two-week Route 66 Road Trip we had planned out to the last detail, even including some of the places we had planned for either lunch or dinner. My last big public outing was in January to a boat show in St. Louis where we bought a new boat. We had high expectations for lots of time on the lake together with just us and friends and family, till Covid hit. But the worse part was first the isolation of not being with my grandkids, my youngest is just over an hour away and I have always had lots of time with here, my son and two other grandkids had a summer trip planned to see everyone but that had to be cancelled too. My husbands and my road trip to NY to see his Mom and a mini vacation for us in April was cancelled due to the fact she lived in the same county where the biggest NY outbreak was. But then in August with only 10 days apart I lost first my mother-in-law and then my Dad, who has always been my hero. But there was a saving grace with that. I more or less moved to Columbia in late April to my brothers where he had moved our Dad to stay and be quarantined and safer and not alone. He had been fighting cancer for almost 4 years but doing well and then had a short bad time and that is why we broke family quarantine and I went to help look after him. He rebounded well, but he loved having both of his kids together so I stayed there all but a few holiday long weekends when I would come back to the lake and get to enjoy time out on the lake in our new boat and just revive my spirit. So that is why I chose these pictures to make my layout of the best of 2020 because the freedom out on the boat and on the water was the best the year had to offer.
