How odd - I thought 2015 was the year of the sheep - when you google it you get both come up - sheep and goat. Those are some pawsome memories you have of the last year and some sad ones too

Wow, that was some year. It always surprises me when you look back how in every year there was so much happening. I hope you get your wish for 2015!!

What an eventful year, for you and the world. I'd almost forgotten about some of those. What a lot happens in a year! Here's to a good 2015, although it hasn't gotten off to a good start with the Paris situation. :(
