Out With The Old...

Shop My Look Here:

Two. Thousand. Sixteen.

What a year it's been. Where do I begin?!

As with most people, I've had highs and lows throughout the past year. Who wants to hear about the lows though? Today I'm sharing a few of my very favorite things about this past year because you always have something to celebrate, right!? Right. :)

A greater sense of self.

I've really come into my own in the past year. It's been a big growing year for me and I definitely have found the person I want to be in that. I feel completely comfortable and I'm happy in my own skin. I'm so excited to see what all 2017 has in store for me!

Finding enjoyment in every moment. 
"No matter where you are, be all there." 
I've tried to take that quote to heart this past year and make a point to put the phone aside and enjoy the moment I'm in. (That's not to say I won't pick up the phone to take a snap or two ;). I am a blogger after all!). By doing this, I really feel like I've found a lot more enjoyment in my day to day life. 

A new friendship that will last a lifetime.
This year brought me one of the best friendships. We've had (many) glasses of wine, a few heartaches and a helluva a lot of laughs over the past year. It's not every day you meet someone you can really vibe with! 

My health.
I've really honed in on my diet and exercise this past year. I try my best to monitor my eating habits in a way that benefits the nourishment of my body. Along with that, I get up and run five out of the seven days in a week. This really kick starts my day - hello endorphins :).

A quaint little apartment that's all my own.
Oh my GOODNESS I could gush and gush about my apartment. I'm absolutely crazy about it. It's styled completely to me and every time I walk in, happiness washes over me. Who doesn't love that in a home?!

My relationship with my mom.
This is definitely one of my favorites from this past year. My mom and I's relationship has really blossomed as I entered adulthood but especially this past year. She's such a beautiful role model for me and I truly could not ask for a better mother. She's amazing!

A community where I feel surrounded by love.
Paducah may be small but it's full of a lot of great people. I'm coming up on two years post grad here in Paducah and I really love being a part of the community here. I think I'll stick around to see what 2017 has to offer ;).

It means the world to me having you all follow this little creative corner of mine. What a fun year it's been with you! Thank you for following along. See you back here in the New Year!

I hope you all have a fun and safe New Years weekend :)


  1. Happy to hear that your relationship with your mom has blossomed this year. My relationship with my mom definitely strengthened after 23 years old. Happy new year and hope 2017 is great to you!
