    A Year In Review: 2016 Part One

    WHAT A YEAR! The very last week of 2016 is here, my 1SE will be over in just 4 days and we are just about ready for our last adventure of the year. This year has had it’s ups and downs- but in the end I actually loved 2016.

    A Look Back At 2015 & Hashtag Announcement

    Here it is, the very last day of 2015. This year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has also brought me the most amazing memories. I married my best friend, got a new last name, meet amazing new friends, got serious about blogging, worked more towards my dream career, and so much more. It actually makes me sad to see this year ending, it is one I will cherish forever. January Dave was still recovering from his heart surgery, so we spent a lot of time playing games, watching movies and enjoying each others company I spent a lot of time working on things for our wedding.
