The Best Bits of 2016

2016 was a year of challenges that lead to great change, discovery, adventure, and new friendships.

roadlife_016Whether I have had the honor to meet you face to face, or merely through this virtual world of letters that form words, I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without your support. Each and every one of you reading these words right now help to keep me company when I am lonely, give me someone to share my adventures with, and support me when I am down. For all you do – THANK YOU.


  • 2016 Highlight: Making new friends, both virtual and in real life, who support me and make me strive to be a better person.
  • 2016 Lowlight: Losing Birdsong.
  • 2016 Grateful: To be equipped with the bravery, intelligence, and tenacity it takes to change my life and live in the moment.

    I’m more than pleased to have been an influence in your year, just as you played a significant role in mine. Here’s hoping we will continue to challenge, inspire, and support one another in the years to come.

    Blame it on the mountains!

    Wow. this is very cool. I somehow missed it when you posted. What a great year. Well, a few bumps. But, those made the good parts that much better. Looking forward to seeing what you do with 2017, Mandy. Hugs…
