Year End Recap And My Favorite Books of 2015

All of our Christmas celebrations our now over and the year is quickly coming to a close. And of course, that causes reflection of the past year, a reliving of the special moments that made 2015 great. Like the really cool center piece I made for the Falmin' Hot Breakfast.



Or spending the afternoon with the kids in the After School Program in the town where I grew up which was sadly the last time as the program is now shut down.



Hanging out at author fairs and laughing it up on air.




Camping with my family.











 

Having fun at the fair.







Running the Shelby Farm Market and attending Cook Book Club with Emily.





Day trips with the family.






 






Road trippin' with my girl and hangin' with my story sister.





Christmas performances, homemade gifts, cookies, and balloon fun.




 







So many good memories and so many great books as well. And without further ado, here are my favorite reads of 2015 in no particular order.
  






























And my all time favorite, number one, brilliant, most incredible, the author was a genious book of the year? Drum roll if you please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 


Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me in the New Year for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, my very own early grade chapter book, Fern Valley, the sequels, Return To Fern Valley,  and Cooking In Fern Valley, along with my very first picture book, Quack and Daisy! I'm also on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.

  2. Our after school program is closing down, too. I've let the staff know that I'm looking for another story circle. There's a lesson for me here: enjoy it, let it go, and look forward to what's next. A good lesson as the year draws to a close!
