BEST OF 2016

I had plenty of ups and downs in 2016 and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of my favorite moments from this whirlwind year. I’ll be back in January to kick things off with a bang (!!!) but for now I’ll be taking a few days off to soak up quality time with family and friends. Thank you all for reading, commenting, sharing, etc. this year — my job wouldn’t be possible without each and every one of you and I am more grateful than you will ever know.
