It’s been a challenging year, mainly in good ways. Beyond 2017’s general challenges that we’ve likely all encountered, my wife and I have been managing the move from our home of 25 years.

In past newsletters I’ve shared lessons learned from sailing, camping in the Boundary Waters, travels and more; if we’re paying attention we can learn from almost any experience. I hope these reflections on our move prove useful for you, and encourage you to capture useful lessons from your own life experiences.
