2016. lately, every other post i see on social media has been about how awful 2016 has been. so many deaths of people who inspired my generation. david bowie, prince and george michael’s passing has left me longing for my teenage days when every hairbrush was a microphone. mrs. brady and princess leia are gone now too – oh, how i wish i’d saved the princess leia costume mom sewed for me back in ’77 (yarn hair buns too!) our political climate has me so mentally exhausted and completely disillusioned…
i won’t say that 2016 was awful though…it was joyful. i witnessed the joy of families joining together, the joy of kids with cake frosting all over their faces and most importantly, the joy of two people in love. the photos below are moments that brought me joy – i hope they will bring you a little joy too.
2016 was good – love always wins.
and the cutest face at a wedding of 2016 goes to….. basil, one of the sweet pet pigs at willows lodge!
if you’ve stuck in there this long with me, wow. i am truly grateful. i am also so grateful for my own little family – they put up with a lot of late nights and weekends without me so that i can continue to do what i love. here’s to 2017 and all the joy it will bring!
