2015

A Picture Summary

The last few months of last year I was pretty much in survival mode. Here are the highlights of that time:

Near the end of September, my grammy went to to be with the Lord. She was 90 years old, and I will forever be grateful that her decline, while it was a hell week, was only a week. This picture was taken just a couple weeks prior. I don’t think I’ll ever come to a stage where I don’t miss her.

For my 30th birthday weekend the Courtneys came out, and we conquered corn mazes and it was a great time with friends.

…And my big ‘finale’ to 30 before 30: going on the seaplane.

Shortly after the midget moved to Colorado to start new adventures. Which I could have sworn I had an artsy picture of packed boxes but apparently I do not. Also I got to meet my dear friend’s new baby in November, who is the most expressive little guy I’ve ever seen.

A bit late, but hello 2016

Hello 2016,

You’re now 11 days old, somehow. So far you’ve started with a bang and (hopefully) the last bit of the Snowpocalypse . 2015 saw my family saying good bye to three family members as they left this life. 2016 you are not starting off on a good foot by us also saying good bye to another uncle.

You’re the first year I won’t have my grammy around. I know some day that will become real, but it still has not. It barely had become real that grandpa was gone.

Irrevocable change has happened, and there will be more to come. I am just hoping it will be of a different nature than 2015’s change.

2016, I apprehensively look forward to what you contain.
