Looking Back at 2016

December 30, 2016

When I reflected at the end of 2015, I wrote that the year was defined by new, adventure and non-stop. When I think of 2016, one word comes to mind: change.

Change defined this year for us in a big way — moving from San Diego to Indiana. It was scary and exciting, but has been a wonderful thing too. Of course I miss my friends and family in San Diego, and some of the adventures we were able to have there. But we’re really loving our life in the Midwest — making new friends, enjoying the change of seasons, exploring Indiana, the cool fall weather and our first snow. Change has been good and we’ve rediscovered a sense of wonder and newness that I didn’t realize was missing before.

I wrote recently about my blog turning seven years old. I love that I’ve been making these year-end photo collages for the past seven years as well. They give me a chance to reflect on all the memories during the year and seeing how much joy and love exists. Of course there are always challenging, depressing and tough times (2016 certainly had its share). But what keeps me sane is trying to focus on the positive and reflecting on the happy times.      Thank you for reading Leah’s Thoughts and being a part in my journey. Happy New Year, and here’s to a great 2017!
