I take care of elderly people and a lot of time is spent remembering the past. Today we were talking some about the time I lived in Alaska. It was my favorite New Years ever. It was New Years Eve of 1999. There was so much anticipation for a whole new millenium. And for me it was my first time ever seeing the Northern Lights! I was so excited, especially coming from Arizona. Talk about total opposites! I also had a wonderful boyfriend at the time. It was a fun, exciting and magical evening. My memories often take me back to that quaint little town at the northern end of the Inside Passage of Alaska. I am so grateful to have had that experience. I loved it there!
So here is my New Year's wish to everyone, whether you are close to home or somewhere far away and exciting...may you have a safe, happy and FUN 2011!!!
