What a year.

2016 has been one of the best years of my life. I got engaged, married the love of my life, moved three times, traveled many different places and met so many wonderful people. I feel so blessed when I look back and think about all the wonderful things that have happened these last 12 months. Along with the good, however, has come the growing pains that are associated with life. I’ve had my fair share of meltdown moments, frustrated times and just hard days.

I once heard someone define the word joy as as a state of happiness that exists even with the heartaches of life. This year has been Joy. There were most definitely the hard times but those hard times made the good times that much better. 2016 is one for the books.


On to the new.

The idea of a new year always brings a feeling of hope and excitement. The year is ours to create and who knows what lies in store. This year I plan to think less of me, to be present and to find the light and good in the world.

Happy New Year!
