2013 Memorable Moments

There’s still a couple more days before we share our 2014 goals with each other. This year has been exceptionally difficult for us to keep quiet until the night of 12/31.

In addition to our yearly goals, which made for amazing memories, we did a few other eventful things this year. Here are some of our 2013 highlights:
