We always get caught up in the negative things that come with a winter storm and often overlook the beauty found within the storm and the after.
Yes it snowed heavy on my Dad’s birthday! Yeah I was digging myself out of my house because we had a foot of snow which appeared to be someone in the sky just throwing huge snowballs at us. Yes I had to clear out the driveway and ended up looking like a lifelike snowman after I was done. Yes we loss power at the house and yes when I woke up and was ready to leave for the day I had to shovel some more to get the car out of the driveway.
That said, after all of that, having the opportunity to capture this beautiful picture on our morning (6:30am) drive was simply wonderful! If you look very closely, you can see the moon up there… #foundmyhappyfortoday
Power outage, a lot of snow and it’s almost a year ago that we had a similar snowstorm. Happy to have a snow blower this year, lucky I used it before the outage! I’m tired of the snow and winter, bring on the warm weather!
We all have things we purchase that we just love and I think I found mine for this year. Last year it was my DJI Phantom drone or Ghost as I call it and this year, well it’s bikes! I feel like a little kid again and it feels great to ride around the neighborhood with the family.
So if you have a place to store them and you can shed some dollars get yourself a bike immediately because you will absolutely feel the joy and stay healthy at the same time!
Enjoying, I guess, some fun on this snow day…But it sure was some serious snow at 2 feet and a lot of shoveling! #snowedIn #snowmageddon
I missed this incredibly funny moment last night…It will have you LOL’ing…I warned you!
I noticed that all of my Fb posts for the last few years on this day started with “My resolution is to laugh more the following year and hang with family and friends”. Also, “first stop in the new year is Puerto Rico.”
Well, I have no booked travel plans just yet for 2017. So familia/friends feel free to let me know where we should go. Let’s see who’s going to offer up room and board…hahaha?
Joking aside, 2016 had signs of being a flawlessly happy year but then we lost some great people. No I don’t mean celebrities whom I’ve never met, I mean some real up close and wonderful family and friends.
It points to the reason I start off my posts with spending time with family and friends and smiling more than prior year. Tomorrow is never guaranteed, the only guarantees we have are death and taxes. You may be able to cheat taxes but the other is inevitable.
So see ya 2016, it was a good run. We traveled a lot, had a lot of heart ache but spent the better part of the year smiling and laughing with loved ones as seen in pictures, videos and check-in’s.
2017, I don’t know what awaits but I do know that God doesn’t put in our path obstacles he doesn’t believe we can’t handle. I’m looking forward to more continued blessings around good friends and great family!
Happy New Year, thanks for watching, participating, liking, reading and debating. May the new year bring us all health and prosperity while keeping us close to our loved ones!
Ps, I didn’t realize this was such a long post until now…hahaha…Pop the champagne!
Spent some time getting my site back online in preparation for 2017. I lost a lot of my old posts but oh well, out with the old and in with the new.
I’m going to try and stay active with my blogging next year, we’ll see how that turns out for me. hahaha
