I am going to admit this right off the bat, I’m kind of phoning this post in. The year has been a long one and I’m exhausted and need a little bit of a mental break.
We had a typical New Year’s Eve, for us anyway. I got home after a long day at work, watched a little hockey and went to bed. Amanda gave me a little shake and a kiss at midnight before I rolled over and went back to sleep. I was lucky enough not to have to work in the morning, so we spent it in bed, only crawling out in time to see the Rose Parade. It’s far superior to that Thanksgiving one in New York. I’m now enjoying the beginning of the NHL Winter Classic. You should know by now we kind of love hockey in my house.
We do have a few travels to look forward to in the upcoming year. We are only 30 days from our third trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The trip balances cost and time constraints with a need for sun and fun. We also plan on going for our second dive trip while there. I can’t wait to hit the water with some experience this time. I really think it my photography will be even better.
We are also in the process of planning a trip to Italy in September. We plan to visit Pompeii and (of course) Florence.
All of that said, who knows what the next year will bring? I hope for our readers it only brings pleasant travels.
