A trip back in Christmas card time…motorcycle style!

As 2015 draws near to an end, I find myself reflecting on this year, our first of retirement, and counting my blessings yet again. We have truly had a magical year, enjoying riding and RVing, seeing inspiring sights across the US, visiting friends old and new, and reconnecting with family. One day I will start sharing bits and pieces of this year…it really was a gift.

Life continued to have its ups and downs. Although our dear friend lost her mother early this month to complications from dementia, my mother continues her journey, making dementia seem a little kinder with her consistently sweet and happy disposition. How long does she have? Who knows…who knows how long any of us have?

Lastly, I wanted to touch base with the blogosphere, since I have been missing so long, and thank those of you that have reached out to me in my absence. I have tried to keep in touch with many of you through reading and commenting on your blogs, but despite being retired, there never seems enough time! You know who you are…you are important to me, and I thank you for your words.

Today marks two years and three months from my first blog post. There is no way I could have predicted how much my life has changed since that day. Thank you for being with me through it all.

See you again soon…May peace and love be with you wherever you go.

A few of our previous motorcycle Christmas cards, just for fun and flashbacks!

NOTE: Edited December 27, 2015 to add our 2015 Christmas Card.

Here’s to a spectacular New Year in 2016!

1999: And yes, this was our living room!

2002: He’s WE BE, I’m KRWZN

Image

2005: Fredricksburg, TX on our trip from Georgia to Big Bend

Image

2006: At the top of Monarch Pass in Colorado (taken in June!)

Image

2007: Santa & his helper, the sleigh, two tiny reindeer and Rudolph!

Image

2008: Moved to new house with separate bike garage, added to the family. This never became a Christmas card, but the intent was there!

Image

2010: We actually had a white Christmas, but no motorcycle card…

Image

2011: Again, no motorcycle card, but this SHOULD have been it…on the Cherohala Skyway. He’s still WE BE, but now I am TOURIN.

Image

2012: This was the year of our first trip to motorcycle ride…

  1. Fantastic!
    And a merry christmas and happy new year to you both.

    I put my bike in storage in november, not realizing that it would be in the sixties here through december, and I would have plenty of time to have been riding.
    Meh.

    • No kidding, Guap…if only we could predict the weather, eh? We never put our bikes away for the winter, so we have taken advantage of the odd day when we haven’t had near-biblical rains! So good to hear from you, friend!

  2. Merry Christmas, Lynne! I’m sorry we missed another opportunity to get together when I was there mid December. Arriving late Mon night and leaving early Thurs evening left 2 nights – both if which ended up with work commitments. 😦 I’ll likely be back before the end of January – and with ~every six weeks consistency through 2016, so I’m sure we’ll eventually see each other!
    p.s. Love keeping up with your travels via FB. 🙂
