What a year. 2017 is the first time, in a long time, that I’m not lamenting about all of the highs and lows. Of course there were lows, but they weren’t the kind of lows that have to be included when reviewing the year…they were so insignificant that I don’t need to talk about them. Do you know how fucking amazing that feels?! For the first time in a decade, it was a year full of nothing but good. I. AM. THANKFUL.
I am content, at peace and comfortable.
I am in love, my son is healthy, my family is full and healthy and happy, my job is comfortable, my goals are overflowing, my car runs great, my bills get paid on time, I have a fantastic support system. Life is good.
This year was full of life experiences, from traveling to Cancun with all the ladies in my family, to Vegas, to FLYING a freaking plane. I learned how to do lash extensions…which is going to change my life, I was invited to be on the Fashion Advisory Council at Lindenwood University, I went to weddings and Butchlorette parties, concerts, New Orleans, got 2 tattoos, got engaged and got a cat. Bucket lists and goals checked off all around.
2017 was a great year, and I can’t even imagine how incredible 2018 is going to be for me. 2018 is going to be a time of HUGE change. By summer next year, nothing in my life is going to look the same and I’m so excited and ready for what is about to happen to me.
For everyone in my life, thank you. I can’t do this without you. I love you.
