And along came 2017

Another year has ended and a new one begun.
New adventures to have.
New memories to make.

I watched the sun set on 2016 and thought of how much has happened over the last 12 months.

The ups and downs and the memories made.

I have thought many times 'it was a good year'.

So as a new year starts, here is to another 'good' year!

One filled with ups and downs.

One with many sunrises and sunsets.

A year filled with family and friends.

Days and weeks full of precious moments.

A year that challenges and pushes, making comfort zones bigger.

A year that brings laughter and joy.

One that helps dreams come true no matter how big or small.

 I hope your new year brings you this and so much more.

I'm not that into the whole 'a new year is a new beginning'.

It just isn't. 
There is a story that comes before that is needed to make this one what it is.

It is more a writing new chapters, or maybe picking one up half way through. 
It is adding to that book of your life.

So I am off to add to my book, and hopefully live it well.

Enjoy living your story, it is yours after all.

May this year bring you all that you need.

Happy New Year!

I spent my New Year's Eve playing Uno with family, having fun with sparklers and, because we managed to stay awake that long (just), watching the Sydney fireworks on t.v. We were making memories.

How did you spend your New Years?

      Your time with family sounds like the best way to see in the new year. I can't recall a year I haven't been awake to see in the new year although I often don't plan on it.
