Every good thing must come to an end and so it was with my wonderful visit with my family in Atlanta. Yesterday I made the six hour trip back to Kentucky. It didn't seem quite as exciting as my trip down the week before.

I think the gray skies over the mountains kind of matched my mood.

I did have lots of time for thinking during the trip, along with loud singing to keep myself awake.

So many wonderful memories were created.

The Grandkids are growing up so quickly. Jack Henry is towering over his mom now.

Tessa and Aunt Katy got in lots of playtime, and I was so happy that even though she is still recovering, Katy was able to join us for many of the activities.

Lots of memories, but I also spent time thinking about the year ahead. I know that I want to take my blog, along with my life, in some new directions. So I will be giving it a lot more thought. Today, I am feeling really tired and so I think I will allow myself some time just to relax and rest. 

New Years eve is always a quiet time for me. I am lucky if I make it to midnight. If you are heading out to celebrate tonight, please be careful. There are a lot of crazy people out and about celebrating. Otherwise, just have a wonderful day and night. See you in the new year.

  5. Hi Laura, cherish the memories you have made. I am sure you will be given the opportunity to share many more lovely moments with your loved ones.
    Take good care of yourself.

  6. So glad you enjoyed the time with family. I understand the drive. I fight going to sleep at the wheel. I chew ice, munch on munchies and sing to the top of my lungs just to stay awake. I even bite on straws...and pray. I have honestly fallen asleep at the wheel in traffic jams which usually occur in Atlanta or Chattanooga. Once I backended a car. It's not good for me to go alone, but I do. Take care and have a peaceful night and new year.

  7. It looks like you had a wonderful visit with your family. Grandkids grow so quickly.

    Have a Happy New Year!

  8. Glad you are safely home! Hard to leave but I know you made amazing memories. I'm looking to 2015 for some changes in my life also!

  9. I absolutely did not make it until midnight ;) I'm glad to read you had a nice time with your family! Happy New Year!
