Well, the New Year was only about 5 hours in and I already had a few new experiences. Shouldn’t you have been sleeping you say? I wish I had been. But I was flying home from visiting family in Wisconsin.
We arrived at the airport at 5:08 am. Our plane was supposed to leave at 6 – we left at 7:30 because of a snow storm that seemed to come out of nowhere. But delay’s are nothing new. What was new was that I got to watching deicing for the first time and take off in a snow storm.
This was followed shortly by an other new experience. After getting rebooked, since we missed our connecting flight in Chicago, we found ourselves upgraded to business class and my first time in the exit row. Lots of extra leg room if you like that sort of thing. To me, it doesn’t matter so much since I usually have plenty of leg room anyway. I’d rather have more elbow room
So deicing and the exit row – new things on the first day of the new year. I know that doesn’t sound terribly exciting, but hey it better than being in my first plane crash.
That was a little while ago now, the new year continues to bring new challenges, up and downs and opportunities. One the new ventures I am embarking on is Real Estate Photography. While that will be separate from this website, I wanted to share the new addition to my services.
Another new thing I am embarking on is some creative re-imagining of my living and working spaces. You can see some of that thought process on Pintrest. I will share more about that moving forward.
The photo in today’s post is called Peaceful Creek. I took it in the middle of a Colorado snow storm. This is the Santa Fe trail, one of my favorites in Colorado Springs.
Here’s to the new year, full of possibilities and new experiences. And new places to take photos.
