I love New Year's Eve because it really makes me take a step back and appreciate how much we have been blessed with. Cade is in his final year of school and graduates in April, and already has an amazing job lined up and in place. I'm in my final year of my first degree, and I'll begin my second degree in Education next fall, all in addition to starting my photography business this year. 2013 went by so quickly between photography, school, travelling, marriage, and just life in general, and I find that this time of year forces me to recognize how fast life is, and how much I need to live in the moment without taking it for granted.
For NYE this year, because we've been travelling lots between Alberta and BC this Christmas season, we wanted to get away for a night and enjoy some time together so we drove to Kelowna, BC. This is one of my favourite places filled with many fond childhood memories, and more recent memories of anniversaries spent here with my hubby. Last night, after spending way too much time in the hot tub (it was a long drive!), we walked around down town and found a great little eatery where we indulged in some good food and rang in the new year.
We're so blessed to be surrounded by this beautiful place, loving friends and family, each other, and one of my resolutions this year is to sincerely appreciate what we've already been so blessed with. I hope everyone's NYE was as romantic and special as ours!
