THE YEAR IN PICTURES 2012: What A Year It Was!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The waning hours of 2012 are upon us and, in wrappin’ up this current chapter of life, I went back through my hundreds, if not thousands, of photos from the the past 12 months and confirmed what an excellent year it’s really been. Great times spent with friends, old and new, excellent travels, much fun and endless, unique and out-of-the-ordinary experiences that make the time spent on this planet so incredible.

Here it is, my “Year in Pictures” for 2012…50 of the finest from the year. Hope you enjoy!

Huge thanks to everyone I came in contact with throughout the the year for helping make this, honestly, one of the best.

Cheers to an even bigger, better, bolder 2013!
