Hello, 2017.

January 5, 2017

Now that 2016 has come to a close, its time to say…Hello, 2017! But first I would like to take a minute to reflect on the year. So many of you are so glad 2016 is over. Me on the other hand, I thought 2016 was one of the best yet. So many really great things happened.


The highlight of the year, happened at the very end of 2016, Matt and I got engaged! We are both over the moon excited and are still enjoying every minute of being engaged, before the wedding planning begins. #engagedlifeisfun I hope to share some of my wedding planning here with you guys!



I traveled to the west coast for the first time, and I will be back! I loved it out there. I went to my cousins wedding in the redwood forest and it was as magical as it sounds. I traveled to Montreal, first time visiting Canada. That was a blast. Went to Maryland a few times to spend time with family. Spent some time down the Cape, in Florida and also in New York City, a few of my most favorite places. Now that I write it all out it was a big travel year!




Made countless new dishes, I have really up-ed my Pinterest game. And it is always a goal of mine to make new foods, I love cooking. I have already carried this over into 2017, stay tuned for a new recipe next week. 😉



And of course checked out all of the best doughnut shops and brunch places.




And now it is time to welcome 2017 with open arms. I am so excited to see what 2017 has in store for us! What were some highlights of your 2016?
