The world is my playground

The world is my playground is more than a phrase...it's a mindset. This past year has taught me that the world can be anyone's playground - if you want it to be.

Jose made this one of a kind poster for me and gave it to me yesterday. It incorporates the phrase, along with many of the predominant landmarks from my personal travels this past year. Thanks again, Jose...it's amazing.

Awesome poster. How did he make it? Hope you have a safe travel back home. I know everyone is very excited for your return. Give me a ring when you return to mom and dads. I leave for Hawaii on Wednesday. Talk to you soon.

Topher, welcome home!
Thanks for sharing your life with all of us through this blog for the entire year. Obviously, so much more has happened behind the scenes that yet needs to be disclosed so looking forward to that. And some more pix. :)
When are you in NYC? I'm going to be there this coming weekend. Juan just returned from Spain yesterday too so I'm going to spend the weekend with him.
Talk to you soon!
