To me it has been a great positive highlight to 2015 and one that I am looking forward to continue in 2016.
Personally, I feel fired up recording what happens around me and sharing it with others.
Here I've chosen a drawing for each month in 2015, a great exercise to remember where I was throughout the year. Enjoy!
