The time has come for me to put together my 2017 bucket list! I started doing a bucket list in place of resolutions last year, and I had a blast trying to complete everything on it. I wasn’t perfect, but I’d say I got about 70% of last year’s list done and I have so many amazing memories because of it! (You can see my recap over in my Best of 2016 post.)
The holidays are finally over! Hallelujah! I know some of you may be mourning this fact, but for me, it means that I finally get to see my husband more regularly again since restaurant life won’t be as busy! He has been working 50-60 hour weeks since Thanksgiving so I am pretty happy to have him back.
Even with how busy it was though, December was a pretty fun month!
Every New Years Eve, after midnight and after the excitement dies down, I like to sit and reflect on what the new year means. In some ways, it’s just a day and a time, just like any other day, but in other ways, it’s a new start, a time to focus on improving myself, and a chance to move my life in a new direction.
I wasn’t going to write one of these posts, mostly because I didn’t feel like getting all deep with you and there’s also a big part of me that wants to leave 2016 in the dust. But then I thought to myself, even if no one reads this, I’ll probably still like having it for myself, so here goes.
This year has been a really amazing year on a personal level – it’s been full of so many adventures and firsts for Colby and I, I’ve grown in so many ways, and I have lots of memories that I won’t soon be forgetting.
Today I’m rounding up my favorite posts from the year by category, so grab some hot cocoa and stay a while! Or, if you want to skip to the end, there’s a final update on my bucket list for this year!
