Hubby and I celebrated this New Year in our car, driving our boys back from a vacation at the beach in Galveston, TX. It was truly a wonderful trip. Our boys got to experience the ocean for the first time, spend time with the cousins they love but don't get to see often enough, and try out the different rides and games at the Boardwalk. I had the chance to see my Aunt, Uncle and their kids and share a meal with them. I also got to see an old friend from high school, who I hadn't seen in 19 1/2 years. It involved a little extra driving, but we were both willing to meet halfway, and since I probably wouldn't be that close again in a long time, it was worth the miles! I even got to see a couple great art exhibits during that unexpected side trip.
But, as nice as it was to be away and spend time with the people we love, it was so nice to be home again. Crawling into my own bed felt great. I woke up a little stiff from all the time in the car, but ready to face this new year with energy and appreciation.
Happy New Year to all my SparkFriends! You've all left your own marks on my life over the past couple years and I'm so glad I've had the chance to share this journey with each of you. Here's to a wonderful 2012!
