Year of Earthquakes

It's 2017: the year of earthquakes. If 2016 was a year of picking paths (for us and the world), 2017 will be a year of walking them.

What were the highlights of 2016?

  1. Celebrating the start of 2016 with Tay and Saori shooting pool at trendy tequila bar in Houston
  2. The bizarre and short burst of baking french macarons, and later, springerle.
  3. We took a night train to Copenhagen and saw the sublime Louisiana museum 
  4. Getting married to Saori and cementing our commitment and love for one another, and experiencing the staggering outpouring of love and support from family and friends.
  5. An afternoon hiking with Saori to the village where my office is, and then being treated to dinner at the restaurant as part of our wedding present
  6. Meeting mom, Larry, and Tay in Rome and exploring and eating our way across the city.
  7. Taking a long and wonderful weekend in Barcelona at the end of the summer.
  8. Seeing the partial completion of my first project in the Jeggle office- the renovation of an old restaurant.
  9. Celebrating Christmas in Stuttgart with the Christmas markets, turkey, hot mulled wine, mountaintop castles, reindeer furs, and hikes in the woods where we didn't die.
  10. Spending a week at my sister-in-laws with her two young children in Atlanta.
