Another year is coming to a close. I’m usually big on reflection all throughout the year, but the last week of December I get especially ruminative. I make yearly goal lists and I’m proud to say that 2015 I checked off most of mine, including things like visiting a new state, visiting a new country, trying foods I don’t normally like, cooking at home more, and reading more.
2015 was AMAZING. I can’t stress that enough. It started by ringing in the New Year with my boyfriend and one of my best friends. We embraced snowstorms galore, traveled to not one but two new countries (the UK and South Africa!). I saw the wild animals of Africa and pet a leopard, I fed a bear in Maine. I hiked abroad and at home. I started a new job that has embraced me and given me so many more opportunities. We started to run an AirBnB out of our spare room. I tried out new beauty products, and even managed to get a face regimen down (finally). We tested cars, we bought a new car. I contributed guest posts to other blogs and websites. I finally joined SnapChat. I spent a few months volunteering my time with cats. We adopted a kitten of our own. I visited a new state, Louisiana, just in the nick of time. And while it doesn’t seem like much, 2015 was by far the best year of my life as of yet.
and 2016 is already looking promising…
We’re headed to Marfa, Texas in 3 weeks (kicking off with my New State early!)
Our big annual trip is in the works for March
