Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming 2015. How the heck is it already 2016?! I said it last year and I'll say it again now - this year was an absolute whirlwind and beyond my wildest expectations! I'm a creature of habit, so I'm going to keep this the same as last year and share everything that happened in 2015 (good and bad), look ahead to 2016, and a few goals I'm setting for both my personal and by blog/business life. Before diving into the good, bad, and everything in between I want to take a minute to thank every single person that has supported me, my blog, and all my endeavors this year. You've made me one (incredibly) happy and lucky girl, and I still can't believe I get to do the things I do each day. Gratitude simply doesn't describe how I feel, but it sure is a start!

A quick overview of 2015 (the good and the bad)

The good this year definitely outweighed the bad, but everything is a learning experience. In 2015 I...

  • Moved to Pasadena with Cody and met a TON of new and amazing people
  • Got to spend SO much time with my best friend in the world (now that we live 30 minutes apart instead of 6 hours)
  • Hosted a handful of blogging events that were so much fun
  • Struggled with my autoimmune disease and depression, which helped me learn SO much about myself and the things that are important to me
  • Got to be there to share my sister's special day as she married her best friend
  • Graduated with my bachelor's degree
  • Drank a TON of delicious coffee! (Of course)
  • Became an aunt!!
  • Traveled like a crazy lady and explored this country SO much
  • Attended a bunch of fun blogging events and met so many kind and generous people
  • FINALLY got to visit my bestie and hang out in the same state!!!

Looking ahead at 2016

In 2016 I...

  • Will continue to travel to new (and old places) places
  • Become a Tia! AHHHHH!!!
  • Have so many fun brand collaborations planned
  • Will celebrate 4 fun-filled, loving, and definitely sometimes annoying years with Cody (HAHA!)
  • Can't wait to see all the fun opportunities that come my way!

A few goals


  • Be more productive and less busy
  • Continue creating a smooth routine that works for me
  • Learn to say no to things and opportunities


  • Cooke more! - I LOVE cooking, but don't do nearly enough of it!
  • Keep my work space more organized
  • Read more blogs. Something I love doing, but somehow lost the time for.
  • Make more time to have fun and enjoy life!
