as i view my blog as my own little corner of the internet and a place to document life happenings, i wanted to share a little 2016 recap. there have been a lot of ups and downs this year, but i’m committed to looking back on 2016 with gratitude and looking forward into 2017 with optimism.
2016 was filled with countless flower shop runs, trips to wine country, and brunch dates. i read a lot of books, started doing hot yoga regularly, taught myself to braid my hair (woo hoo, finally!) and discovered a lot of new-to-me spots here in SF and in places we visit frequently, like Nashville. i went on 20 (!!) different trips / roundtrip flights. i started to really feel comfortable with myself – to trust myself more, to love myself more, to appreciate myself and my body more. we really started making our apartment feel like a home (and added A LOT of plants to our little nest) and we went on a lot of weekend roadtrips. we celebrated birthdays and accomplishments and regular, everyday life just because. here’s a month-by-month recap. happy new year, friends!
