Another Amazing Year in the Books

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

Every year, I try to look back and see what we accomplished over the last year.  All I can do is be very grateful for everything in my life: my family, friends, home, and all the adventures.  I have been so blessed and am even more excited for 2017.  Here’s a quick review of the 2016:
