So, yes, I did not finish the 2016 Christmas Advent calendar. My apologies to all my dear readers.

This is not that I did not want to at first. In fact, I have several places that I had already photographed to post about. But life at the time decided that I had other things to worry about. Remember, 2016. Yep. I really don’t want to spend time whining here about everything that happened and I’ve decided to go back to blogging, which I miss and which enables me to share beautiful parts of my life in America.

Just a few things I learned (or re-learned):

  • Sh*t does come in massive loads when it comes (also more politely known as Murphy’s law)
  • You can control your reaction to what is happening around you and to you (no, I’m not saying that it is easy)
  • Friends and family are here to support you. Furry friends too ;-)
  • It does stop at one point, one way or the other

With that being said, let’s go back to blogging, the great state of Texas, and the weird city of Austin.
