If there is one thing we like at G&F, it’s fun. Without it, who cares. We’re looking back to a whole year of the F word with a list of some of our favorite moments. From a road trip to Nashville in the spring to a Bob Fosse tribute for our Summer Swim editorial, we’ve got plenty of goodies to reflect upon with a great, big smile. What will 2015 bring? Who knows. But one thing is for certain: we’re not going to take ourselves too seriously trying to figure it out. And until then: sit back, relax and get ready to take a peek as we unveil our Best Of moments from 2014. >>
