As I look back on the year that has transpired, I find myself thinking what really happened to make this year unique from prior years. As a matter of fact, I doubt there will ever be another year bigger than 2015. Of course, that was the year that I married my sweetheart.
But don’t think 2016 doesn’t rank up there in popularity. I met some great people and traveled again to one of my favorite places, New York City. I dare say our trip in early September was the highlight of the year. Greg and I met probably the nicest couple you could ever meet, Francois and Keith. I didn’t think to get a picture with them while we were there (sorry, guys), but I promise that the next time we visit them… and there will be a next time… I will be more photogenic.
Looking ahead to the year to come, while there is much to be concerned about (and that language is much tamer than I have thought in prior weeks,) there is much to look forward to. Like I said, we are planning to go back to New York City next year. Don’t know if it will be a Spring or Fall trip yet, but we’ll figure that out soon. We also would like to see the Braves at their new home, although we will miss going to the Ted. RIP Turner Field.
If I could have my way, we would take a visit to Los Angeles again. It’s been way too long (8 years!) since we’ve been there. Maybe one of these days if airfare is ever affordable again. Maybe after another year of saving we might be able to do it.
And, well, there’s Star Wars Episode VIII to look forward to next December. It’ll be nice to hear Mark Hamill speak this time.
I hope everyone out there reading this has the greatest year in 2017 that one could ever hope for!
Much love from Greg and myself.
