A hawk’s eye view of the frigid sunset from our house
Mindfulness. Gratitude. Being present in the moment and looking wisely into the future.
There are many things to reflect on about 2015 and think forward to in the new year. Getting married and settling into a new home were big events for me in 2015. My new year’s reflections this year are centered in gratitude. I feel incredibly lucky for so many things. Most of all, in 2016 I hope to keep this spirit of gratefulness alive as we settle into our new home and establish new rhythms.
Today I walked up Mount Philo, a familiar place to many who grew up here. Now that we live on its southern slope, I’ve found a new appreciation for the beautiful walk, opportunity to be outside in nature, and the spectacular view from the top Mt. Philo provides to so many. Here are some photos that capture the new year from our little spot in the Champlain Valley.
