2016 was a great year for me and my small family. After some initial setbacks, we all made it to Japan where we spent the whole year exploring and adventuring. We experienced everything from Cherry Blossom, Apples in Nagano, and even knocked out the huge accomplishment of climbing Mt. Fuji. Living in Japan has been a fantastic experience for us and we look forward to another year of excitement and new experiences.
Tonight we will be going out on the town, eating dinner, grabbing some drinks, and hopefully end up at a nearby shrine for the midnight ceremonies. Earlier today we went on a quick hike by our house and were gifted by the nature gods with a fantastic view of Mt. Fuji. If you look really close at the picture of me holding Quinn you can see him in the background. I will take the view as a sign of prosperity for the new year.
I look forward to all the new challenges and new adventures next year. I look forward to sharing them with my beautiful wife and with my great friends.
I hope all of you have a great new year filled with adventure and happiness.
