Can you believe it’s already almost the New Year? It seriously seems like we were just ringing in 2016! Though this year has definitely presented us with its fair share of trials and challenging times, it has personally been one of my most amazing years ever. From traveling to new places, taking my dream trip to Paris that ended with a proposal (these photos were taken the afternoon after we got engaged), and accomplishing so many goals both personally and professionally, 2016 has been one for the books.

I’ll be taking the rest of the year off to spend time with loved ones, continue packing for our move (eek!), and celebrate the New Year at home. I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for your constant love and support that keeps me going. Every comment and sweet message encourages me to push forward, and makes my day a little bit brighter. Thank you all – I can’t wait to share this next year and chapter of my life with you!
