Friday Five: The Best of 2015

Every Friday I’ll indulge my order-crazed brain in a list of randomness. Welcome to my Friday Fives.

Like the holidays before it, Joe and I will be ushering in the new year in the most low-key way possible: a little football, some special food, some homemade cassis from Chris and Chilali…and, if all goes well, peanut butter brown butter rice krispie treats. And, of course, lots of time with this little one who is the most precious of snow bunnies.

Her wish for the new year? Snow. Carrots. Apples. Snow. Sleep.

My wish for the new year? Health. Happiness. Adventure. Health. Sleep.

We’re not too far off from each other.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ready for this year to end. In life’s land of peaks and pits it feels like there were way more pits to navigate, but it doesn’t mean we were without some really spectacular moments. Here are some of my top-five favorites of the year:
