Happy Anniversary…and Happy Thanksgiving!


Little Hosmer Pond, Craftsbury, VT….just because it’s beautiful and peaceful

I was just looking back at this past year of blogging and realized that my very first post was a year, and a couple of weeks, ago…11.12.2014.  It’s kind of weird, but I don’t think I consciously meant to click the “Publish” button on that specific day….the day after what would have been my 30th wedding anniversary…11.11.2014.  When I think about it now, though, I’m sure it was somewhat intentional, if not subliminally, to start a new chapter and really feel like I’m moving forward with my life.


It was fun to go back and reflect on my adventures, realizations, and the gratitude I truly feel for the life that’s been given to me.  Sooooo, happy blogging anniversary to me!  I hope my adventures continue, that there’s always something to write about and that hopefully, in some small way, that the attitude I put forth helps others to appreciate everything they have…family, friends and this amazing life!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
