Saying Goodbye to 2015

Saying goodbye to 2015 is truly bittersweet. As I sit here looking back at all the pictures we managed to capture during these last 365 days, I cannot help but just grin from ear to ear.

From exploring more of this enchanting city we get to call home, to embarking on new adventures near and far, this past year was definitely one for the books.

It’s officially starting to look a lot like Christmas here in Brooklyn, and I for one couldn’t be more excited. I know I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record, but I love Christmas, especially here in New York. The lights. The decor. The smell of Christmas trees lining the sidewalks. Oh, and of course the holiday cheer. Everyone [well, almost everyone] is so much happier this time of year.
