New Year's Day hike and traditions,
January 1, 2020
We've held various traditions for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day over the years; my favorite was going to Laguna Beach when we lived in California, and watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean on the last day of the year. It's always great to reflect and give appreciation for so many things to be thankful for. For New Year's Day 2020, I took a long hike in our neighborhood on a cold day. 2019 was a tough year and I had all kinds of hopes for 2020 as being a new dawn - little did I know about what was to soon unfold... I also start each year out with some sort of soup, this year, as in a few past years, it was Pho and it was yummy if not a little spicy. You can also ee the Christmas wreaths I made in 2019 and the huge Sloth that Alex got for Christmas that he named, "Steve"...
