The Chill & The No Chill of 2016


Hey Friends!

Two Thousand Sixteen. To quote The Grateful Dead, what a long strange trip it’s been. Honestly, it’s a bit of a blur. Like I know there were good parts and I definitely know there were bad parts – but all the parts are just kind of swirling around in my brain like one big shit storm.

I’m sure that when we’re all old and gray, we’ll look back on the year that was and be able to laugh. But not now, it’s too soon.

Anywaaays, Irina and I each answered the following list of statements completely separate from one and other – resulting in what we think landed in the chill zone and what landed in the no chill zone this past year.

p.s. After you read what we think – we’d love to know what you think. We’ve provided a link at the end of this post for you to fill out your answers. How fun!
