Many people claim 2013 was a bad year. It had some rotten moments, most notably David's health scare, but I see it as a year of success because he survived and is now in much better health and working on new physical goals. We had a busy but colorful year with many good memories. I'm thankful for the trials, the growth, and the solidarity each has inspired in us.
Our one-word goal for 2014 is Adventure. We enjoy those moments we spend outdoors, hiking, spelunking, exploring and traveling just as much as we love those magic moments at home. We'd like to create more of both this year.
