The reason I’m taking you back to 2016 is rather random. It all started when my laptop warned me that I was running out of memory. This hasn’t ever really happened before. Back in the day, I backed everything up onto CD-ROM. That was before the day of portable hard drives. Since then, I’ve haven’t really had any reason to upgrade my memory situation. My laptop has been pretty good to me all this time.
The last few years I’ve really enjoyed taking photos and short video clips of places and/or memories. It eventually turned into a little hobby by sharing them through blog posts or little video montages. By doing so, I kept accumulating all these memories, stored them into folders and that’s where they stayed, collecting dust on my desktop and chewing up storage.
So instead of getting additional memory, I’m going to face this problem head-on and do a Marie Condo cleanup on my laptop. There is honestly no reason for me to hold onto 5 pictures of my cat doing the same pose, all the usie retakes, millions of #food photos for Instagram, the list is endless. I must admit, I do take too many photos sometimes for just in case.
The last few days I’ve been organizing my Pictures\2016 folder and let me tell you, it took me back. It was so nice looking through memories and thinking back to the good old days. 2016 was a very special year for me.
While working on my highlights video, I was reminded of our beautiful home country, the people, weather, places and all the special moments with loved ones. There was and is soooo much to be thankful for. 2016 was a beautiful year and I’m so grateful.
