Life is Good, Isn’t it?

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have. – Anonymous


New Year’s Eve at Havasu State Park, Arizona

The Hubby and I decided to close out the year doing what we do best – enjoying nature in the RV. There were no ball drops, party favors, or fireworks because this wandering lady needs little to welcome in a new year.


A little rain didn’t stop these fishermen.

It brought a smile to my face seeing so many snowbirds in the campground, jacket-less and in shorts and sandals, so happy to be free of snow and colder temps. As we passed a couple from Colorado enjoying the lake view, the wife said to us, “Life is good, isn’t it?” and I agreed, it couldn’t be any better.

The last sunset of 2016

2016 was a good year for us – exactly one year today, we packed up our lives and set off in a U-haul trailer to begin again as retirees in Arizona. I’ve learned I don’t need much to have a happy life – a good wander now and then,  a pretty-in-pink sunset, a smile and a good laugh, and the realization how blessed I really am to be living life on my terms.

Happy New Year! May 2017 find you, smiling often and enjoying the little things…….
