2018- Year in Review

2018 was one of my favorite years yet! I spent some time this morning reflecting on the past 12 months and thanking God for all of the ways He’s blessed this year- it was so refreshing. It’s so easy it is get caught up in all that we need/want to do and we can so quickly forget all the good that has already happened! Thinking of some of these memories truly brought a smile to my face and I wanted to share some of the highlights of my year with you here. Of course, there are a lot of (good and bad) moments that didn’t make the ‘gram, but here are a few of my favorites!

Started blogging FULL time! This has been a dream of mine and January 2018 was the start of that dream becoming a reality!

Anxiously watched our house get built and closed on our house in April 2018. It was the BEST feeling ever and both of our favorite parts of the year!

Ended the year with a fun weekend trip to Chicago!

Thanks so much for following along with me this year! It was truly one of my favorite years of my life and I feel so blessed and thankful! Of course there are many other highlights that weren’t captured with a camera. I grew closer to God, I made so many memories with friends, I developed in my confidence, fell more in love with my husband, hired an assistant (woohoo!), cherished time with family, and I learned a lot about myself. Thank you so much for all of your love and support. I’m so so SO excited for 2019! Let’s do this!
