A New Year

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”
― Alfred Tennyson

DSC_0539We welcomed 2014 with a New Year’s Day Hike and with a sigh of relief we said goodbye to a tumultuous year filled with pain, loss, grief and one unexpected blessing. We’re still trudging along and dealing with some of the hardships we’ve been dealt, but we’re ushering in the new year with hope and optimism as well. We chose to start the year off with a hike as a way to solidify our resolution that this year will center on our family connecting on a deeper level with nature.  We look forward to the bonding, healing and wisdom that we will gain from our time together outdoors.

Happy new year to you all!
