The year 2016 was full of special memories. Reflecting on the quote I posted early about tomorrow being the first blank page of a 365 page book and encouraging us to write a good one, I've decided to share some of our book from 2016.

Today we went to Montpelier, the home of the 4th President of the United States, James Madison. All of the photographs in this album were taken by Griffin.
I will treasure this day, forever. It was truly a wonderful day, spent only with my son - my almost 12-year-old son. I had a realization today, in just six short years, he will be an adult. It is coming faster than I want it to. Today, he and I talked. I mean, we really talked and we carried on interesting conversations. And, I really listened to him. He is so smart, incredibly interesting and he is such a good person. Throughout the day, I looked my son eye-to-eye. That is still hard for me to get used to. When we arrived at Montpelier, he asked if he could take pictures with my camera. I handed it right over. He was excited to explore the camera and to take picture after picture. It was pure joy seeing him so excited about something. I am truly grateful for this day. ❤ This is a few pictures I took with my phone, I will share Griffin's photographs in the next post.
Griffin asked if he could take pictures today. I handed him the Canon and he took pictures of our adventure to Montpilier. He's never really interested in photography, so this made me very happy today!

Gifts are nice, but it's the little things that mean the most to me ~ like waking up to find my husband has filled the K-Cup holder or Griffin helping me sort/match three loads of socks that has gathered.
