A year I won’t soon forget.

In a few short hours, 2013 will be a memory. A lot happened during the past 12 months and many of the events were big firsts for myself and for my family. We had amazing adventures, a few dents, watched a city pull together to prove Mother Nature is no match for us and celebrated milestone birthdays. As I look forward to  2014 I can’t help but hope the future holds as much excitement as the year past. I hope you enjoy a look back at our 2013.
