Sharable Moments: September-December 2017

Where did the month(s) go? You may (or may not) have noticed I have been conspicuously absent from Neighborly Life.  That’s what a busy work/travel schedule will do, I suppose. That said, my social calendar has been quite exciting. Here’s what I’ve been up to, and will generate posts to come in the future!
