As I look back on the year, I’m feeling incredibly blessed, and a bit amazed at all that transpired in 2015. Lots of adventure, some heartbreak and a whole lot of fun. Family (and friends who are like family), travel, and nature were all pretty strong themes. The last part of the year brought a few big changes, most notably, saying goodbye to my grandfather, Papa, who will be greatly missed. The reminder to call him every Sunday at 4 pm still pops up on my phone each week and I’ve decided to keep it there for now.
A few days later, my work consulting as Chief Operating Officer for Halo Studios came to end. This was another big change as I’d been immersed in that project for over a year. The Universe, as it usually does, brought about this shift in perfect and divine timing, and I’m super excited that space opened for the new opportunities that have been coming my way.
Here’s a partial list in absolutely no particular, as well as random photos, representing important and completely random moments in 2015, the year I…….
