Best of 2016

Wishing you a Happy New Year’s Eve (eve)! Before we welcome 2017, I want to slow down and celebrate a few highlights from this past year. Looking back on 2016, I’ll remember it as a year filled with travel. It began with celebrating my birthday in New Orleans, then a few months later: embarking on a road trip west and cruising along Highway 1… visiting Napa Valley, San Fransisco, Big Sur, Monterrey, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Moab and Park City. I feel so thankful for the opportunity to experience such a cool part of our country this year, and visit a handful of our National Parks like Zion, Joshua Tree and Channel Islands. I also loved traveling to Vail, Aspen, and Naples, Florida most recently — and spending more time with loved ones back home, too. And, of course, 2016 will be remembered as the year we became engaged! (I’m still on cloud nine.) And you! Thank YOU for continuing to visit and support this blog I started 3 years ago. Looking forward to 2017, I cannot wait to take on new challenges and share exciting content in the works. It’s sure to be a great year! As always, feel free to chime in with comments at the bottom of each post, or connect with me on Instagram or Facebook. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2017!
