– Opening a show at House of Blues in Chicago to one of the most attentive audiences we’ve ever had
– Bringing family & “franny” on an epic musical road trip to Maine and back, helping us play in 27 states
– Getting some sweet song placements (like this one) through MUSICBED
– Producing a forthcoming live album for an amazing church community
– Picking up a handmade classical guitar, and touring through Australia & New Zealand with new friends Mike & Holly
– Meeting heaps of wonderful people through music via the 54 shows we played this year
– Releasing 2 more collaborations under Love Your Neighbor—April & May
