When life hands you lemons, they say make lemonade…
I feel like I made an awful lot of lemonade last year. However, I am grateful that 2016 was ushered out while on a week of vacation. We welcomed the New Year together as a family and had a great time being together.
Yep, best decision ever to take a week off and enjoy each other’s company once the rush of the holidays was over. I might have to do that every year from now on.
We enjoyed quiet mornings and even managed to eat out a couple times for breakfast. The Christmas cleanup didn’t seem too daunting either as it was done slowly over the course of a couple of days.
New Year’s Eve was spent at home playing games and hanging out enjoying being in our warm home. The fireplace was on and a simple dinner was delivered from a local pizza place. And we even saw the ball drop; New York time, but all the same it was a wonderful evening.
I’m looking forward to an enjoyable year with my family. Hoping for more good times and more smiles in 2017! I’m also already looking forward to our next week of vacation! Next time we may even venture a little further from home.
