  • My 2015

    As I always do at this time of year, I’ve put together a lookback at my 2015. It’s been an odd and testing year but I’m remaining more positive than I thought I would about 2016. I’ve not really accomplished much in terms of my goals for the year because quite frankly they were the […]
