Life Just Happens!

Which is why blogging isn’t happening.

I continue to “Find the JOY” in my life. Ok, it hasn’t all been “Joyful” but you won’t find me complaining. I have been knocked down a notch or two, but nothing I couldn’t handle or resolve. Just Life Happens! is all.

And LIFE is what this journey is about so I’ll start with one of the most recent…

All 8 of the “Grands” together! For some it was the first time and a few years for others. Some got two weeks together while others got a long weekend but it will be a memory for a lifetime.

It also meant they were all together for our 4th Annual Boo Bash.

They all had so much fun!

This years Boo Bash had 35 kids and 26 adults. It is something that has become a tradition for so many families and we have been blessed to capture a moment in time for each of them. Love the “JOY” we make for other’s!

More recent was our 16th annual NASCAR race week in Phoenix. Fun-filled with the Camping World Truck Series race, the Nationwide Series, the K & N Series, and of course the Sprint Cup Series.35034_10200089195856914_947177096_n

 

Always my “JOY” to be here, can you tell!

 

 

 

I had the opportunity to have Jimmie Johnson sign his book.

It is always a special time with our friends from up north. Oh, I should have said it is a “JOY” to spend this time with them!

I also relearned how to ride a bike. So hubby went to town and bought me my own.

For now I will stop here in my joyful journey before this gets so long you all get tired of reading it, or looking at all the pictures.

I would like to mention one more thing before I post and that is a photo challenge. I seem to like challenging myself, failing most the time, but still I get back up and try again. So I am dusting off my Life-365 Days a Year! blog. You see that button over there on the side bar, it should still take you there. I did a 365 back in 2010 and only missed less then 20 days. I would have to go back and refresh my mind but it really doesn’t matter, does it. I just feel up to trying it again so if you don’t find me writing anything, check over there to see just what is up.

Also, we did have a lovely Thanksgiving and hope you all did too. We had so much to be thankful for this year and though it was a tough day being an anniversary and all, I made it through and am now getting ready for my favorite time of year!

“JOY, pure and simple, JOY”
