I've also had a bit of blogger burnout when we were in SC and NC. Hopefully I will do a better job keeping up with this but know that "living in the moment" is important to me. I don't want to be so tied to this blog that when we go places and do things I am always thinking "got to blog about this!".
We were in NC for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We really enjoyed catching up with family and friends......

|Live, Love, Laugh|

On Christmas morning, we went over to my friend Linda's house for a breakfast feast. After eating way too much, I was able to get a few pictures....
|Linda and her "boys"|
|Mom, me, Elaine, Patrick|
Barbara, Dad, Cathy
And of course, we always have to act up....
|Me and my "little" brother!|
|Brandon, Nick, Sammie, Amanda|
Dad, Mom, Ciara
Not sure how I missed it (could have been all of the craziness!) but I didn't get one picture of my great sister-in-law Jen.
Sunday morning (the 30th), we headed south bright and early. Our goal was to get to Cedar Key to spend New Year's Eve with friends. Traffic on the 30th was thick but we made it to our overnight stopover (Walkabout Campground) safe and sound. After a short drive the morning of the 31st we arrived at our destination....our lot in Cedar Key! It was so nice to be back and the sun and warm weather were very much welcomed. Dan was in shorts and flip-flops within hours! I was in flip-flops too but had not yet dug out my shorts. Ahhhhhh!
Our good friends Nancy and Bill popped over to see us as well as Gin and Syl and we had a nice afternoon getting caught up. Nancy and Bill left early to get back to their campground before dark. Cedar Key is a bit off the beaten path and some of the roads around here can be a bit creepy at night! New Year's Eve we went up to the clubhouse to celebrate. Friends, food and drink...doesn't get much better than that! We had a great time celebrating with Gin, Syl, Mac, Mo, Connie, Cliff, Dot, Charlie, Vel, Maggie, and Ken. One of the campers here brought his karoake set-up and we had a blast singing and dancing. We made it to midnight by the skin of our teeth and the party broke up shortly after we rang in the new year.
New Year's Day was sunny and bright and our Cedar Key "bike gang" pedaled in the afternoon. We were also able to find a geocache at the cemetary (thanks Charlie!). It was a great day to start the new year!!
