2016 in Review

So lots of people have hated 2016. And yeah, some real annoying, sad, bad things happened. But if we are being honest, I admit that I’m definitely in the minority — I had a good 2016. Our family had a happy, healthy year and a lot of good, fun stuff happened! There were numerous Disney trips, lots of family time, huge milestones for H, Wild Man and I made some really cool goals, etc. I’m always excited for a new year and a clean slate, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the year 2016.
