Because I guess I only come on here once a year…

Maybe this will be the year I actually start using this platform to its fullest potential. Scratch that! This will be the year that I’m going to explore more of blogging. It’s been two years since I’ve had this blog. Following the same pattern as last year, I start off the year strong with a post. I’m not disappearing again though.

2017 was a very fulfilling year for me. I was a little more selfish with my time and I took the effort to love myself a little more. I didn’t quite hit all the goals I had set for myself, but I took the steps to learn about things I needed to change. I also remember working a lot. I was constantly busy juggling projects and battling sleep deprivation.

Then there were also those moments that I fell into a weird limbo of being really motivated but also completely lost. It’s kind of weird to explain but I knew what I wanted to work hard for and achieve but also I was completely unsure of myself at times.

Also, how can I not mention one of the greatest moments of my life thus far. This year was also spent with adding new members to my pet family. My heart has been so full of love this year.

Below are a few of my favorite memories:

And that wraps it all up! 2017 and what a year. As I get older, the years seem to go by faster and faster. I’m grateful for all the things I currently have: a good relationship, friendships, and a nice home. There are always defining moments every year that really help me grow and learn something new and I’m excited for those in 2018. I can’t wait for more fun adventures. Stay tuned for all the updates on the craziness.
