2013 in Review

Dear Tawny, it’s that time of year again. I know how winter can pull you inside of yourself and make you look back on what you’ve done. I hope that you realize what a good year this was. We took a leap, again, and landed on our feet. Another year, living independently and living the dream. Our dream. Here’s a toast to 2013, may it burn brightly in our memories far into our twilight years.

So say we all.
