25 Best Photos of 2015

It's been a year of big things: Ed and I got married, got to take a couple of great vacations, we dealt with our dog Molly's illness, ate great food, worked, saw lots of live music, watched the Royals win the World Series, and spent time with our best friends, families and pets. We have been really fortunate - Molly is still with us and doing well, as are our families and those closest to us. We are happy and healthy, too, and hopeful for whatever next year will bring. 

I also spent a lot of time taking photos this year, with varying degrees of success. Here are my favorite photos of 2015. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
