One of our favorite yearly traditions is the exercise of putting this list together. We tend to be the type of people who are constantly looking toward the future: at the next project, the next goal, the next beer. This list helps us take a moment to stop and reflect on just how much we’ve been able to accomplish in the past year.

Below, you’ll find that list. Thanks for taking the time to give it a look!
