Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May your life be blessed with love, good health and peace in the year ahead.

We feel bad for our friends and family in the Midwest who are dealing with crazy winds and wicked cold weather. We are so grateful to be here in sunny Yuma where the highs today and tomorrow will be 75 degrees. We are definitely missing our family, though! Thank goodness for video calling!

Since my last post in October, we've been back in Yuma enjoying our life here. We've played plenty of golf, enjoyed time with friends and did a few projects around our park model. 

One of the fun events we participated in was the annual golf cart Christmas parade. This was our first time now that we have a gas golf cart, and were able to make it around the entire resort. Our previous cart had old batteries, and wouldn't have made it.

There were over 60 golf carts in the parade. Everyone decorates their cart with lights and whatever they come up with. This is just part of the line up waiting for it to get darker.

Here is our cart looking festive.

Many of the participants dress up including myself and some of our friends.

These guys were super creative with their gingerbread house. They did say it was quite hard getting in and out!

After the parade, we all met at the main hall for cookies, cupcakes and hot chocolate and coffee laced with some holiday cheer. It was a great time.

Last night on Christmas Eve we had several friends over for dessert and drinks. It was a beautiful evening, and the new firepit was just right for the chill in the air.

I've decided that while we are stationary in Yuma, I will not be posting as much to this blog. It tends to be the same year after year, and I don't want to bore anyone. I will occasionally post on Facebook if there is something that might be of interest.

I will continue to keep the blog active to record future trips we are planning. When I started the blog, it was to record and share our full time RV journey, and to keep family and friends informed of our travels. What I didn't expect to happen, is that it has become a travel journal for me as well. Many times I refer back to it to help me remember someplace we've been.

This summer we will be headed back to Wisconsin and Nebraska to visit our family and escape the heat in Yuma. Our next planned vacation trip is in October with back to back cruises to Australia and New Zealand. This has been number one on my bucket list for a long time!

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
