The firework show at the Space Needle on New Year’s Eve is a sight not to be missed. I was fortunate enough to get front row seats on the rooftop of a friend’s place that overlooks Kerry Park. The best part of the fireworks show at the Space Needle is watching Seattle’s most iconic landmark look so beautiful at night with all the pops of color.

2015 was a good year. I was cancer-free! To me the concept of New Year’s Eve means reflecting and celebrating the previous year, being thankful for what you have and a time to think about all the lessons learned.
