Wow 2017 has been crazy! It has had its ups and downs, but has overall been a really good year. I feel like I grew a lot as a person and continued to do things I love with the people I love. However, with that being said, I am so ready for a fresh start! Before each new year I always like to reflect on the past… so here are my highlights from 2017.


This past year has surrounded me with so many amazing people. I seriously could not have made it without my friends and family. I met a ton of new people this year and I am so thankful for each and everyone. I am so grateful!

I think this year I did the most exploring/traveling and I am ecstatic about it! I love visiting new places and seeing life from different perspectives. It makes me appreciate where I live, but it also makes me crave adventure! This year I was fortunate to explore the beautiful nature Oregon has to offer, hike awesome waterfalls in Hawaii, enjoy the warmth on California beaches, be a true tourist in Seattle, and live my east coast dream! I hope I get the opportunity to travel and explore even more in 2018!

Lastly, the most unexpected, but probably one of the best things that happened to me in 2017 was that I started dating my boyfriend, Harry. Never in a million years would I have guessed we would ever date, but I am so glad we did. Although he drives me actually insane, being around him makes me so happy! Harry makes me feel comfortable and he brings out the best in me. He makes me be my true self and accepts all my weirdness and flaws. He is my best friend and has definitely made my year!

I hope everyone has a safe and fabulous New Years Eve and I hope 2018 is everything we want it to be!
