As I’ve been thinking about 2016, one word keeps coming to mind: eventful.
The world lost a lot of celebrities and artists, including some whose music had a profound impact on me.
Maggie and I celebrated Molly’s first birthday, Jacob’s fifth, and our sixth anniversary.
I got a beautiful new Seagull guitar, named Lana.
We took a road trip to The Gorge for the Dave Matthews Band’s three-night stand and helped raise some serious dough for conservation efforts.
We met some amazing new friends, and a guy in a Superman shirt bear-hugged me so hard it felt like I broke a rib.
We brought the kiddos with us as we voted in the primary and general elections.
I watched the Packers turn a rough season into another NFC North title.
I played tunes for and with some incredible people.
We found a new spot to live in beautiful Oceanside – our official California hometown – and I’m hard at work getting my home studio up and running so I can write and record new music.
Like I said, eventful.
