Happy New Year!

on January 2, 2016

Hello 2016!  What adventures await us in this new year?  Yesterday, I saw footage from Rio de Janeiro and apparently on New Year’s Eve people will put flowers into the water and hope that the New Year wishes come true.  I mentioned this to Adriana and she said: “Resolutions.  Wishes.  Same thing.”  I told her that it felt like wishes were more hopeful and resolutions tended to be focused on what is wrong that needs fixing.  My daughter, the cynic, replied that resolutions were pretty much wishes since most people give up on them.  Ha!  I am not a big New Year’s Resolution person so apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  However, I still like the hopefulness of putting wishes out there.  My wish for my family is the one I “wish” every night; that they have safe, happy, healthy and long lives.  For all of those who have taken the moment to look at this and check in on us; I wish you the same.  Happy New Year!

Linc shows his happy face

Linc usually doesn’t pose for the camera so the fact that there are two smiling pics is ah-mazing!
