Farewell 2017

Before welcoming a new year, it’s natural to take a look back on the year previous. For me, 2017 was a transformative and largely good year. I began a new job, delved into wedding plans, landed a big partnership, traveled to a handful of destinations near and far, said goodbye to two wonderful grandparents, and celebrated news of another niece (or nephew) arriving soon this February. In some ways, I didn’t feel as close to blogging this year as I have in years past. And in all honesty: I’m content with those feelings, for now. It’s given me time to strengthen personal goals (and #reallife) — and become insanely excited and energized for 2018. It’s bound to a big year, and I can’t wait to share it with you! I’m feeling focused, creative and determined to create new content and bring fresh ideas here. As always, I thank you for visiting and all your love. May your new year be filled with the very, very best! xx, Laura
