    • Thanks! The last few months were heavily work focused and weren’t as exciting as the beginning of the year. I suppose that’s why it’s good to have these lists. They help me reflect on how much I accomplished and gained in 12 months, because it’s very easy to forget!

    • You can’t stand near it for more than 5 seconds, otherwise you feel as if the heat is going to melt your body!

      We also saw people heating hot dogs and melting marshmallows over the lava. It was quite the sight!
