Once the long table, a borrowed wooden skaters’ ramp, was cleared, half of the kids had to leave for their afternoon swimming lesson.

For example, in 2015, the wife and I adjusted to having a baby for the first time. In 2016, I discovered my love for good coffee and how simple living made me happy.
