Holiday Traditions: Walking Through Lights On The Lake 

Every family has  Holiday Traditions.  Ours falls every year in the middle of the November for the first night of the Lights On The Lake along Onondaga Lake.

The light show runs until early January with thousands of cars attending each year.  But the first night allows guests to walk to the end and back, approximately 4 miles.  ( The second night allows guests to walk their dogs).

It’s cold.  The older kids usually groan.  But it’s the one thing we always do together.   While the light show doesn’t change that much from year to year, I still find it more enjoyable to walk than drive.

Liam’s first year of speech was entertaining as he had fun naming everything that he recognized then on the way back he hid under the blanket and played Angry Birds…this kid.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
