Here’s my look back on the last twelve months and my thoughts on the Best of the year.
Vance Joy "Dream Your Life Away"
Best TV Program
“House of Cards" Frank Underwood is delightfully evil
"It's not your fault that you were born affluent and sheltered. But now you need to take responsibility for it. You can start by recognizing that you're not in fact, more valuable than other people, no matter what you've always heard. Your pain does not hurt more. Your soul does not weigh more...God does not love you more." Williams Deresiewicz (Excellent Sheep, Free Press, Pg. 222)
The best meal generally comes from some exotic place, but this year it goes to the most consistent best meal in the country, Del Frisco's Fort Worth. In addition is their incredible hospitality.
May 22, 2015 - Sitting with my family in the midnight sun along the black beaches of Iceland.
Iceland. The scenery is epic and the time in this remote location with my family was indescribable.
It is Mount Evans again. Last year we failed to summit but it was an amazing climb. In 2015 we summited and it was a first as a sunset summit. God makes great things.

Sunset over Lake Superior.
In Jamaica Beach, Texas on our first night of the trip. Thankful for the continuation of a great tradition and friendships.
The 1998 Vega Sicillia Unico. Enjoyed it a few times this year. Ribera Del Duero still takes them all in my book.
I felt this picture taken by our daughter caught our relationship of adventure, laughter and love - it also shows some of our age which I no longer feel the need to hide :) - (not that I could).
