This year is an abbreviated list. 2017 was not a good year in a ton of different ways. I’m going to keep it very simple this year.

2017 Year in Review

1. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

March 17th – I turned 33 this year.

Spent the day celebrating a St. Patrick’s Day potluck at work, and then out to dinner with Charlie at Burntwood Tavern in Fairlawn. K, Kenny, Charlie, my parents and I went out to celebrate K’s and my joing birthday at Gigi’s and The Speakeasy.
