Saying goodbye to 2023...


Here it is the end of 2023 and all I find myself doing is dreaming of 2024!  It's not that this year hasn't been wonderful, it has.  We've been to some great places and done some wonderful trips...but there are more to come and the planning is half the fun!  

This is the time of the year though, that I do like to sit back and not only reflect, but acknowledge how truly lucky we are.  We have great health when so many don't; we have a sweet little warm home that shelters us in a sunny area of the country, a lovely working motorhome that takes us where we want to go, when we want to go; we have enough money to travel - maybe not to as many nor as far or exotic destinations as we would love to go if we won the lottery, but more than many folks.  We are happy people who love each other and enjoy life with family and friends who care about us.  So very much to be thankful for, we are very blessed.  

Our driving trips this year were "short and sweet" - Arizona and New Mexico.  What we lacked in driving distance, we seemed to have made up in flying - to Washington and then to the Caribbean via Miami!  That seems to be the "norm" these days for us anymore...less driving, more flying, and next year cruising.  I think it just might have something to do with our age and - hey, it's still traveling!  and that's all I've ever asked to do!  ;-)
