Between Christmas and New Year's, Hannah Gray and I joined our friends Jim and Kelly Tinsley with their boys, Matthew and Cooper to see the Festival of Lights at the zoo. It was really mild so the zoo was packed, but we got to see lots of lights, several animals and even ride the merry-go-round.
We also got to see my college roommate and long time friend Allison and her husband Nate for breakfast. It was great to see them and we hope to see them again soon. They live in Pittsburgh so hopefully we'll meet somewhere in the middle for some good hiking this spring.
My roommate from my time at the Focus on Family Institue in Colorado just got married a few weeks ago and her new husband is from Columbus. We had the privilege of meeting Josh and Andrea in Columbus while they were in town. It had been almost 2 years since I last saw Andrea, so it was such a blessing to be able to spend time with her and to meet Josh.
