What’s One of the Best Things about the End of the Year?
A Shot at a New Beginning.
I’m Not Going to Gloss Over This Next Statement. 2017 was Tough.
But I Wouldn’t Change Anything, Even if I Could, because We Have Learned and Grown and Come Together.
Sometimes Kicking and Screaming and Getting Angry with the Universe.
But Together. Gaining Strength from Each Other and So Much Better than When We Began this Saga.
And Happily Welcoming a Brand Spanking New Year.
As a Farewell to 2017, a Fun Photographic Essay of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
New Mexico Style.
Laguna Posole. Hominy. Red Chile. Garlic. Pork. Simple Comfort Food.
Mixing Mild and Hot Red Chile for All to Enjoy.
Cook until the Hominy Pops. Then Add the Red Chile.
Serve Steaming Hot in Deep Bowls. With Crispy Italian Bread…or Tortillas.
Fixings for Antipasto.
Shrimp. A Crowd Favorite.
No Bake Ice Cream Pie. Easy and Delicious.
Add Haagen Dazs Chunks for a Surprise.
Top with Cool Whip.
We Had Time to Bake Sugar Cookies. But I Forgot to Sprinkle on the Colored Sugar.
Plain Jane Cookies are Still Delicious.
Christmas Eve Table Set with Santa at the Helm.
Swirling Table Skaters. Add Snow Sparkle Inside that We Don’t Have Outside.
Hanging Holly Swags from the Chandelier.
Christmas the Elf waited for a Ride back to the Pole.
I’m Glad She Made an Appearance this Year…we welcomed her Magic.
Luminarias. Ready to Set Out on Christmas Eve.
Tiny Paper Sacks Filled with Sand and a Candle.
To Guide the Way Home.
Christmas Day. This Year…Italian.
Buca di Beppo. Thank you. 🙂
Spaghetti and Meat Balls.
And After a Long Winter’s Nap. Back in the Tower that Touches the Sky.
A Short Sprint of Work, Quietly Nestled Between the Holidays.
Still 60 Degrees Here and No Snow. A “San Diego” Christmas. I’ll Take It.
Wishing You a Joyous New Beginning Filled with Good Health and Happiness.
I’ve Loved Sharing This Journey with You.
