A Look Back At 2012

As a new year is upon us once again its always
fun to take a look back. 

I am playing along with Ashley's 
Memories, dreams and reflections. 
Just like the scavenger hunt Ashley gives us
25 word prompts to help us take a look back
at a year gone by..

At the beginning of the year the hubby and I took a little trip 
to one of my favorite cities San Francisco.

The love of my life.

Trying to get a serious photo here PLEASE!!

No snow or rain here in Vegas but this is what
happens to my bouganvilla in the winter. 
Also I just really love this photo. 

We had the best Birthday ever!

Just a couple of my girlfriends 
I try to meet up with them once a week!

Nothing says spring like a bright beautiful flower!

Had lots of fun on this trip to Cannon Beach, OR.

My girlfriend Becca made big changes this year by moving to Seattle.
She is Loving Life..  I am hoping I feel the same when I make big changes this year.

You have to do this hike in the summer because the
water is way too cold in the winter. 
Narrows in Zion National Park.

Whether I am at home or camping or on vacation
I need my COFFEE.

This photo always makes me smile!

This photo was in Central Park, NYC.
What a great trip!

Here they are my sweet family!
Love you guys..

My Grandsons 1st Birthday.

Definitely want to go back some day!

Can't wait till May when I can see them again. 


Too Cute..

Love this shot!!

I really should have taken more photos
of family while they were here. 

Taken from the Ship.
Another reminder of a wonderful trip.

Still madly in love with this guy.
I hope that never changes. 

Another shot I love..


This New year will have lots of changes for us.
We will be renting out our house and hitting the road. 
Full time RV'ers..  So excited, I can't wait. 

I just wanted to say
Thank you so much for all the support and
and encouragement that all of you have given me. 
And I do hope you have a Happy and Healthy
and safe New Year ahead..

See you next year!!
