2016: my year in review

Our memories fade, even over the short period. Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate the things that we’ve  done and experienced over the course of the year, because, let’s face it, time passes quickly and we are so wrapped up in 1000 other things – which is a large part of why I take tons of photos!!!  (refer to precious blog entry on why we take pics).

Ushering in 2017 caused me to look back in reflection and in appreciation, to what amazing adventures 2016 brought to me. 2016 wasn’t perfect by any means – we all have bumps along the road, trial and tribulations – but, I’m choosing to focus on the good and the positive – law of attraction people!

I am sharing with you some of the highlights of this past year. We are looking forward to many more great memories ahead.  Welcome 2017!

Have you tried looking back at photos or jotting down the little things that 2016 brought to you?

Hello and welcome to my blog! I never really thought about starting a blog much before recently, I mean … what did I have to say or offer that would have anything of value? I’m not an expert in decorating; I just have an eye for it. I’m not “The Nanny”, but I am the mom of two lovely, beautiful, driven young women. I can speak to topics such as coming up through the lower ranks of the social financial system, being a teen mom, being an empty nester at 42, highlight some trials, tribulations and exaltations and about how I created a life for myself that I am happy with beyond measure. It wasn’t much before a friend of mine said “you should write a book” that I gave some serious consideration to blogging. My goal, really, is to provide and share some of my experiences, create dialogue and maybe help a few people out along the way. I welcome your comments, questions and ideas about what you’d like to chat about. Each of my blogs will end with a quote on the topic and a related video. Namaste, T xo
