Throughout the month of December, I’ll be writing a post a day for the fabulous project Reverb 12.  It’s an opportunity to reflect on the year that’s wrapping up and using the fruits of that reflection to shape the year ahead – in other words, exactly the kind of thing I love to think about!  So, without further ado, here’s today’s prompt.

Surprise:  The most surprising thing that happened this year was…

I’ve thought about this a lot, and I’m not sure there were any huge shocks this year.  Maybe that one time we lost the bag of Ikea shelf hardware, only to be found three months after our move.  That was surprising, both to have lost it and to have re-found it after cutting our own shelf pegs from a brass dowel.

How about you?  Surely someone must have had a more interesting year than that.
