Happy New Year!

As 2012 ends and 2013 begins, I leave you with this thought from the author, Neil Gaiman (found here on Goodreads): “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Happiness Is

Happiness is . . . arriving safely at our daughter’s house, after a drive that took three hours longer than it should.  We needed multiple detours due to car accidents, one of which unfortunately had a fatality.  We were happy that our drive was uneventful and boring was just fine.

Time Travel For Laughter

This week’s travel theme at Where’s My Backpack is “couples”.  Since I’m usually the one taking pictures, I don’t have many of me together with my husband, especially when we’re traveling. So instead, I decided to do a little time travel back to Thanksgiving years ago when my niece was young.  These are from some…
