The Adventures of 2015

Wednesday, December 30, 2015
When I look back at 2015 I think of ‘new.’ New experiences, new adventures, new challenges. It was a year full of firsts from the big things like visiting our cabin in Rosita, Colorado, for the first time, writing for The Wichita Eagle, to the small things like trying Blue Apron delivered meals.

All of 2015’s new experiences have challenged me to be more adventurous, honest, forgiving, open minded, and willing to accept change. And, I discovered I absolutely love collard greens. 

I spent the majority of my time at home this year on the patio - my favorite room of the house!

It was a good year; full of wonderful celebrations with family, time spent with good friends, and many nights spent burning pinon wood in the chiminea on our patio. 2015 brought a new Volkswagen GLI, half marathons, lake trips, a Threshing Bee birthday celebration, weddings, Thanksgiving dinner in Mankato, Garth Brooks in Wichita and plenty of toasting, dining, tailgating, cooking, writing, traveling, running, gardening, and laughing in between.

There were days that brought smiles, and there were days that brought tears, but once again I end the year feeling so very thankful for my many blessings.  
Thanksgiving in Mankato was fun and delicious.

My motto last year was, “Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an Adventure.” I’m so glad that for the majority of the time I did choose to look at things as an adventure – because that’s really what life is – a great adventure. 

Mike and I took the UTV to 13,047 ft to Hermit Lake in August.

Here's to the next one. Happy 2016, friends.
