Happy New Years Eve, friends!

Oh, 2017, what a year you were. You were full of laughter, tears, new friendships, lost friendships, love, heartbreak, happiness, loss and a heck of a lot of learning. I learned so much in one short year that has made me a new person. A happier person. A person who looks at things like the glass is half full. A person who can finally wear her heart on her sleeve again. A person who is open about her feelings. A person who knows where she wants to be in life. Overall, a better person. A person that I’m proud to be.

Some of you may not know this, but I’ve struggled a lot the last few years. So much changed in such a short amount of time that I didn’t know how to cope with it. During 2017, I learned that change is GOOD. So good, actually and I’m going in to 2018 with open arms HOPING for change. I have a few things in mind that I wouldn’t mind changing but we’ll see where this year takes me. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that you shouldn’t plan your life out to a T because God has an even bigger plan for you and it will 99% not go the way you intended it to.

My favorite moments of 2017:

  • Watching Brayden play T-ball, soccer, hockey and learn to swim
  • Seeing Brayden succeed in school
  • Starting my first full-time job in social media
  • Going to Nashville for the first time
  • Moving in to my own apartment
  • Going back home to Virginia twice
  • Visiting my best friend in Atlanta
  • Seeing my best friend have her second baby

MY 2018 GOALS:

  • Be more positive
  • Read more
  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise regularly
  • TRAVEL more
  • Have more patience
  • Advance in my blog and work with more brands
  • Work on my photography
  • Live in the moment more
  • Be the best mom I can be

I’m not going to say it’s a new year, new me, but I am going to say it’s a new year and I’m excited to be a BETTER me. I can’t wait to grab 2018 by the horns and make it the best year, yet. I also wanted to thank all of you who take the time out of your day to read my little blog. The amount of love and support I get from all of you brings me so much joy and I am so thankful for ALL of you. I’m so excited for this next year and to bring you guys a lot more content. I hope you all have an amazing start to 2018!

So see ya later, 2017, thanks for the memories 👋
