Rewind 2020: The Good Times

Hi.

I’m sure many of you are tired of hearing about 2020, but I have been feeling so stuck and unmotivated and I felt like I needed to look back at the happy times from last year to get me going for this year. So I just want to recap the good times because we don’t seem to hear about that often. I was just to spread a little bit of positivity, hopefully it works. 🙂

Mt. Hood

To celebrate the new year together, as a family, we took to the mountain for some snow-fun.

Pokemon Govember w/Mike Bennett

For the second year in a row, Mike Bennett did another round of Pokemon art for a scavenger hunt in November. It was so intense we almost didn’t get this Wigglytuff. We were 2 mins away when the location was announced and mere seconds from losing! We got lucky this time. 🙂

Moving to our new place in December

We have finally gotten settled in, just tying up loose ends and decorating the place. We love it so far.

I hope my post brought a bit of positivity for you, if not, it’s okay. I did this in hopes of getting myself to start thinking about things more positively. And seeing lots of smiling faces here is definitely a mood booster 🙂

What are some things you have been enjoying lately?
