Happy New Year

The Buchholz family is relatively low key when it comes to New Year's Eve celebration. I lit a bonfire and the kids made s'mores while the adults sipped on Oregon's famed pinot noir. When toasting, Americans say “cheers.”

The next morning, on New Year's Day, I was greeted with a beautiful sunrise which hopefully bodes for a happy future.

Good luck to all, let's not kill each other this year.
