Oh, the places we will go in 2017!

Good grief, how the years fly by!  It's no lie that the older you get the faster they go.  Can you believe it's that time again already?  A quick recap of the previous year and making travel plans for the new. This blog of mine is now five years old and when I look back, I just can't believe the wonderful places that we've managed to visit.  I'm so thankful for the beautiful people we get to go through life with.  If I'm ever feeling blue, I just have to read a few old posts to cheer me up and get me excited for the future (in spite of recent political events that have set my head spinning).  What a fabulous world we live in.

Starting 2017 with a Walk & a Word

I like to start the new year off with a walk and a good think.  I don’t really do New Year Resolutions. (It’s January so I can still talk about this stuff , right?) Not only am I never successful with resolutions, but I can’t even remember them come February. Last year at the encouragement of a few friends, I picked a Word for the Year. A word to guide and encourage. Something to focus on. They all expressed that this was a positive thing for them, that it made a difference. So I went for a walk on New Years Day in Folkestone to come up with my Word for 2017.

Christmas with the Grandbabies

Yep, I'm going to be one of those grandmas.  Because the  39 photos that you saw in my last post just weren't enough, I have a whole bunch more.  I realize that most of you might have little interest, so I promise to get back to more bloggy stuff next week.  But, for today it's Christmas with the grandbabies.

Those Grandbabies of mine!

Like most bloggers, I'm trying to get this blog buzzin' again for the new year.  I still have several trips to write about so I've been editing photos and planning posts.  Of course, I'm working on one of those What We Did last Year and What We Wanna Do This Year posts.  It just has to be done.  But, first I just have to tell you about my two sweet grandbabies!  I was so excited to become a grandma (or Gigi as I'm called) but I mean... I had no idea the piercing love that I would have for these little nuggets.  It's indescribable, really.  So let me show off some photos from my recent visit and tell you just a little bit about them both.

Our Key West Honeymoon 2011

Today is a big day in our household.  We are celebrating Matt's birthday as well as our sixth anniversary.  Yep, we got married on his birthday (hoping that he would then never forget our anniversary). Today we are celebrating with a pilgrimage to Anfield Stadium in Liverpool for an FA Cup game.  Matt has been a lifelong fan of The Reds, but has never been to a home game.  He's pretty "chuffed."  Today on the blog I want to share some photos from our honeymoon in Key West, Florida those six years ago.
