Recapping 2017 for Gringalicious - Part 2 - (May - Aug)

in photography •  last year  (edited)

Happy New Year's my friends! here's part two of my 2017 recap.

To be honest, I'd meant to get this post out yesterday but unfortunately the flu season hit our house hard this past week so we've all been taking turns feeling under the weather. But now that we're all nearly over it I'm excited to start this next year fresh and strong.

So starting back in May my family packed our bags in Southern Chile and boarded a plane (many planes actually) heading to Florida for a much needed vacation together. Some of you may have seen my posts from the trip way back when. Anyway, that was a lot of fun and I took so many pictures that I still have yet to sort through.

After Florida two of my sisters ( @alovelymess and @uglysweater ) went with their husbands
( @drobinson and @rigaronib ) to Tennessee to visit in-laws. The rest of us went up to stay with extended family ( @lifes-a-donut and @hotrod ) in Sandpoint Idaho. We went 4-wheeling, kayaking, hiking, and all kinds of other fun summer activities.

For my sister @fullofhope 's birthday we all went to a trampoline park in Spokane and that was a lot of fun as well. We also went camping a few times in the nearby woods and I'm looking forward to next summer so we can do that again.

After that was when, and some of you might have been following me back then, I had a pretty bad accident on a 4-wheeler and broke my wrist, some ribs, and completely tore up my knee. It's pretty safe to say that changed the rest of my summer, but thankfully I've made a full recovery since then thanks to some amazing people and the help of my family.

After that we moved into our new house in Coeur d'Alene and that's where August ended.

So in part 3 I'll be sharing the rest of my year. I hope you all have a great holiday!

ALL CONTENT IS MINE AND ORIGINAL! All of these food photos were taken with my Nikon D5300 and my favorite Lens, the Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G. You can find out more in my INTRO POST.

And, by the way, to all the minnows out there, my intro post did a huge $0.21. The key to success on Steemit is to be consistent and persistent.

Also, a huge shoutout to @rigaronib for designing my logo!

Sorry to hear the fam has been under the weather! But you're right, just chalk it up to immune system training for 2018! ;)

Loving seeing your recaps- looks like youve shared a ton of brain expanding experiences and smiles- that's what life is all about my dear! You work so hard that you totally deserve it! Keep up the great work into 2018!

<3

·

Yeah, you're right, another one on the list in the immune system.

that's a great way to put it, 'brain expanding experiences.' I like that. I am counting on much more expansion in 2018

Thanks so much for the great comment @dayleeo

·
·

I’ll toast to brain expansion any day! You’re so welcome! 💕

That’s a lot of fun and adventure in one year! Looks like you had a lot of fun. I hope 2018 will be your best year ever! And who knows, maybe we will cross paths on our adventures? I know that a meal with you is in my bucket list!

·

I made the bucket list!! - Now that is one of the best compliments I have ever received.

Yes, let's do it. Let's work on making our paths cross this year. Only two trips on the books so far, everything else is on the drawing board. First trip is to Southern California later this month and then my second booked trip is in April, I will be visiting Chile again. We left a lot of 'stuff' there when we decided to move back to the states, so we need to go sort through it all, not actually looking forward to that.

nice photography

·

thanks

gringalicious it is so refreshing and good. I myself love traveling going out in close to nature but after reading your article and seeing these pictures, I am just unable to say something. I am speech less. Your kyaking picturese has reminded me of my kyaking which I did with my friends.
You had a blast last year, I hope 2018 would be even more fun.

hello
Happy New Year @gringalicious, from a new user.

now i not know about resteem, but i do your this post

·

Thanks @aaryaan! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Gringalicious. :))))) I was wondering, why this name? :) I like it, its so cool, but how did you made that name ? :)))

·

When I started blogging, I was living in Chile. Gringa is a name they give to people from North America and Europe. So, gringalicious. Now that I am back in the states, it does not apply so much, but now it is the name everyone knows me by

Great question

·
·

OK. ooook that make sence. I am from Bulgaria and when we were in Costa Rica somebody told me that. "Hola Gringa". I think its great. I love it. And I think you were one of my first people that I liked here. Good luck girl ;)

A great post to resume many things on year 2017 :) Nice pictures !!!

·

thanks for commenting

It has been a great year!!!

·

I agree, thanks for reading @hotrod and I'm looking forward to steeming with you this year!

Happy New Year!!!

sounds like you had an amazing year, apart from the accident.
funny that nearly the whole family is on steemit already!

the place where you live right now looks stunning. We're going to Vancouver next year and hope to do a road trip through the states as well.

·

Thanks so much @betterthanhome! A trip through the States would be a great experience for you I'm sure. I'd also love to see Vancouver and it happens to be near the top of my travel list.

Happy New Year, hopefully in year 2018 this will be better than the previous year
