A Look Back at 2017


2017 will certainly be remembered as one of the most life-changing and joy-filled years of my life. It was the year that we planned our wedding, got married, traveled to Europe, and started our life as husband and wife in a new state. It was another successful year of owning my own business and sharing some of my life with you all.
Some highlights from the year:+ My Bachelorette trip to NYC with some of my nearest and dearest

+ Our time spent on the Amalfi Coast on our Honeymoon

+ A year of what felt like endless celebrations!

+ Spending time with family and friends through wedding festivities, like my bridal shower

+ Our Girl’s Trip to South Carolina

+ Moving into our first home together

It was a year of big transitions. Planning a wedding, prepping for marriage, and wrapping our heads around moving to a completely new state created some uneasiness and anxiety, as well. There were a lot of moving parts going on – nearly everything that was “normal” to us was in transition and that can be difficult for a planner like me. It was a year of personal growth – learning to be flexible, learning what it means to be a wife, and all the other things that came along this year. I’m deeply thankful for the joy and wonderful things that 2017 brought and look forward to this next year for our family!
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for following along and allowing me to continue to do what I love through this blog and my business. I’m looking forward to continuing to share with you into the new year!
