Happy Aniversary: has it really been 4 years here?

This is a very emotional time of year for me, the combination of the holidays and the anniversary of our move into the new building four years ago is pretty overwhelming. On the one hand it is hard to believe that it has been four years, on the other hand: I keep looking around wondering when we are going to finish unpacking? Perhaps in another four years….
