July-December 2013 Epic Catch Up

Happy Holidays!

It’s been a long time since my last post – it’s safe to say it’s been a bloody crazy year. Between working (lots), spending some time in America for the Theros release in September and moving into a new apartment with Rosie (with lots of board games, Magic and other such distractions in between), I’ve hardly had any time to get any content up. Now that everything has calmed down (relatively) things should get back to normal.

Instead of writing a whole essay about what I’ve been up to over the last few months, I’m going to put a whole bunch of photos below to show you instead (reading is boring).
