This past year has been full of so many things, so many moments and new memories that we have formed together. So many experiences that happened. I believe we had a very good year, and I'm looking forward to 2017. There are of course some rough spots in every year, but on the whole I think I liked and enjoyed many parts of 2016.
We traveled a lot during the warmer months in 2016, as well as a few winter trips. We visited Utah several times, and have many good memories of eating at favorite fast foods joints while there such as Taco Time, which do not exist out here in the east. We went ice skating, movie watching, and exploring while in Utah both times and they are some very positive memories of 2016.
During the summer we went on a journey through Colorado camping wherever we stopped. We visited several places, fell in love with the beauty of the Earth, gazed at the amazing scenery some more, and bounded over the fires and the experience of being outdoors with nature. We camped in both colder and warmer climates, and actually preferred the much cooler and higher elevations. Colorado is such a beautiful state, where the creativity and love of the heavens combined and formed beautiful vista, peaks, and wildlife. We ate food made on a portable grill, pitched the tent a few too many times, and had a blast. It was a wonderful vacation.
Finally, at the end of 2016 we moved to Maryland. We moved for many reasons, but so far it has been a blast of its own. The area has much more to do, more to see, new faces and new places. I grew up here and have many memories of my own and old friends I see. Things seem to be going very well indeed. We will have to explore more and do more this year in this new home state of ours.
I look forward to a new and bright 2017. Some parts of 2016 did not work out the way we had hoped or expected, and we will always continue to work on ourselves towards a more loving self and highly-esteemed individuals.
In addition, I hope that we work more on our marriage and loving each other more as we grow closer together over new memories and experiences in this new year. I believe there will be many goods things to come, and I believe our love and bonds will continue to harden and strengthen. It is at our lowest that our love is perfected in us, when the ego and the comfort are stripped away. We can use the bad times to better perfect the good times, and learn from them to continue on our journey of life.
2017 will be an excellent year for us, I know so. The world and the material we see each day are just but a rendering of reality from our conscious. Reality is at we make it, and the power of the mind in shaping our love and experiences is stronger than any believe. I love our marriage and every part of it, and I know we will only love each other more at the end of 2017, so here's to a new year of more us, and a new year of more loving memories together.
