Vision boarding: everyday dilemmas and joys

I belong to a women's group that meets once a month. This month, we were invited to look for and prep images and words to create Vision Boards for 2018 for our February meeting, as a way to set our intentions for the rest of the year.

Best shot(s) of 2017?

I don't consider myself to be a landscape photographer, nor do I think I am any good at landscapes, but I always try when I get an opportunity.
