So Long, 2016

I think that it’s safe to say thatΒ 2016 has been one hell of a wild ride. On a personal level, though, it’s been an amazing year and I wanted to share some of my highlights:

  1. The Firefighter and I got married and I officially became a part of a new family.
  2. The Firefighter and I went on an epic European honeymoon, a fantastic adventure with memories that will last us a lifetime.
  3. I jetted to New York to help one of my best friends find her wedding dress.
  4. I got to spend a shopping-food-and-wine filled weekend in Chicago with two of my favorite people – and as a bonus, spend time with my brother and his beautiful girlfriend.
  5. I got to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Christmas with family and loved ones, something we don’t always get to do since we live so far apart.
  6. I successfully managed to drink around the world on my fourth attempt trying and celebrate the bachelorette party of a beautiful bride-to-be.
  7. The Cubs won the World Series.

2016 was great to me. I can’t wait to see what opportunities 2017 has in store.
