2017 will mark the ten year anniversary of this little blog of my life, thoughts and adventures. Many different events have been shared over that time, but looking back at the times with my family are probably my most favorite.
My 2015 Christmas was full of melancholy as I was moving to Arizona a couple of months later. Christmas Eve 2012 was the night before I left on Christmas morning to Prague. 2010 was the year I made a time capsule for my newest niece Flooey. My post in 2009 was all about trying to reconcile sadness of the past with hope of the future.
This Christmas Eve I was at my brother’s house, and I talked the family into watching “Christmas Vacation”, as the kids had never seen it before. The scene where Sparky gets trapped in the attic and ends up watching old Christmas movies touched me deeply, as it reminded me of how important it is to capture and remember these moments of time.
Before you know it, years have passed by. So I make another treasured video to remember 2016.
