Stepping into a New Year

When stepping into a new year, 365 days stretch out before us with endless possibilities of what we might accomplish. Yesterday I commented that "like footsteps in the freshly fallen snow, it is fun to make the first strides in a new year." 

footsteps in snow

Here in Montana, the first day of 2016 is crisp, clear, and cold. Brilliant sunshine is reflecting off of sparkling snow, and temperatures are hovering around 5 degrees Fahrenheit.  A truly beautiful day.

It is 5 degrees but bright and sunny on this first day of 2016

Here's to all of us making great strides in 2016: as individuals, collectively as humanity, and in our efforts to be kind to each other and protect this beautiful planet on which we live. 

Happy New Year!

    1. It was a beautiful day - the photo unfortunately doesn't fully do it justice. I'm happy you enjoyed it though EC - your photos of birds, flowers and kangaroos have provided me a lot of enjoyment so it is nice to return the favor!

  4. Such beautiful pictures! We don't have any snow, but it's been cold and clear here as well. Doing everything with kindness is one of my goals for 2016.

    1. I love your goal Lana - although I think you probably just need to continue living life as you always have and you will acheive it.
