2013: Year in Review

Because it was so much fun a last year

January:  Spending New Years in the Golan, hiking Masada, and staying in this most amazing of places in the Negev desert (home of the HBDP) — all during Jenelle’s visit.

LLAP around the world

When traveling with me, one must take a moment to be photographed doing the Vulcan salute. It is known. (For real.) (Seriously.)

Here’s a round-up of a few of my favorites.

On the wall around Graceland, during my birthday trip there in 2011 with Jonathan, Alissa, and Kate. (After this picture was taken, I can clearly remember Kate saying, “Was the hand thing really necessary?” Yes. Always.)

Just in time for the lunar new year (almost)!

This year, I rang in the New Year with Jon and Jenelle in the Golan Heights at a B&B on the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee. We drove up the night of the 31st, arriving late in the night — somehow managing to stay up until the wee hours of the morning anyway.
