new year new projects

Happy New Year to you all!
We rang in the new year very quietly.. in fact I didn't even stay up for it. 
In the morning we were up bright, really early and we decided to go for a little drive to the beach with the dogs.
The dogs love the beach so do we. We don't go often enough…
It was beautiful and the sun was shining but the wind was cool and crisp. I collected shells, he collected skipping stones. The dogs ran and played in the sand. We talked, laughed and reminisced about all the good times. 
 We had a wonderful year and the best part was being able to spend christmas with my family. It was so amazing. The drive to Canada was long and the time with my family was too short. We drove through sunshine, snow, freezing rain and clear skies.. There is nothing like driving through Oregon. Its my favorite. I wish we had more time. 
There are a few big trips in the works for this year like a road trip back to Texas to see the mister's family. Another camping trip to Utah and possibly another trip to Canada… so far 2015 looks good!
