My Retrospective on 2017

We’ve arrived at the end of 2017 everybody! Good to see that you made it with me!

It’s a few days post-Christmas and I’ve scrounged together enough time to type up a few words on my retrospective of this year past.

Passing Thanksgiving and moving into December meant Christmas was approaching. As a kid, no holiday got you excited more than Christmas. The television specials, the opportunity to hopefully get something you wanted, and even getting days off from school. We all remember those simpler times with a warm fondness. As an adult, we think back on those times as ‘what used to be’ and sometimes forget that we can still kindle those memories today.
