2016 at a glance
It was a year full of many things some good and some not so good. There was love, laughter, celebration and loss. What it comes down to for me is this. I lived. I learned. I laughed. I cried and the beauty of it all is that I can now look back and choose to take away the positive from every experience! And that is what I call allowing my heart to be open and to really feel life in all it’s being. To be present and not to be stuck in a moment is magical! One of my favorite things is photography, I fell into it so effortlessly and at that moment I just knew it was a perfect fit for me! During the spring months I had a moment of exploring (love to explore and try new things if you’re learning you’re living!) and went out into the backyard with my camera and gathered some flowers, my vision came to fruition. I never thought that something so simple could turn out to be so beautiful to me. I love nature and all that it encompasses! Taking photos outdoors is so very peaceful and refreshing for me, I truly love it. I’m looking forward to getting back into it more this new year!
An unforgettable family trip to C Lazy U ranch! We took the trip so that my sweet girl could ride horses all day every day, this ranch is a horse lover’s dream and she loves them! She had the time of her life during that week making new friends and exploring the beautiful ranch! There are so many different activities for everyone and the food is amazing! If you have someone in your family that loves horseback riding, or maybe just you?! Then you should definitely check this place out!
We spent so much time in our backyard over the warm summer months this year which isn’t the norm for us. We like to travel and usually are gone most of the summer, I’m not gonna lie it was a blast being home more this year. There sure was a whole lot of decorating and entertaining going on out back! I rearranged more times than I can remember and I enjoyed every moment of it to the fullest! There is just something about slowing down and being home more that brings me joy. It was so very enjoyable having that time with our family and friends.
Thanks for checking out my year at a glance! May your year be full of learning, loving and happiness! Stay open and let love in!
