Many of my blogger friends are doing a year in review, and I was inspired to borrow some of your ideas and do my own.
I went on a lot of great hikes last year and that means I spent a lot of time doing what I love.
In 2015 I got to watch my only child transition from high-schooler into college student, and to grow closer to the adult they are destined to be.
I can’t help but find make adventure.
Domestic and wild animals alike capture my interest. Particularly squirrels.
Some things build inside me till I have to get it out, and that’s when I pull out my soapbox. Though my blog is typically the place where I simply catalog what I’m doing, it’s also a place to spill out my thoughts and emotions.
I took a few nice ones this year.
I’ve been saying that 2015 was my Year of the Friend. I relished opportunities to develop stronger friendships and I expect to reap great rewards as the happy memories pile up and we find more excuses to be together. Since you are here, you already know that bloggers make friends as good as anyone in real life. I have learned much from all of you, I have seen sights I couldn’t see any other way. And it’s not merely the dazzling shots of places around the world, but more the perspectives you give me of your lives. Bloggers don’t just post photos, but they comment on the world around them, and it’s in your personal convictions and your love of family and your delight in local traditions that makes me feel so close to you. Thank you, thank you. Or, wado, as we Cherokees say to one another. I truly hope your 2016 is the best yet.
