Mid Year Review

Can you believe that it is already half way through 2017? Seriously this year went by fast. 2017 from start to now had been going going going. Honestly my 22nd year as a whole has been pretty crazy from day one.

I was really lucky that for 2017 I had such amazing friends to spend New Years with. 2016 was such a crazy, loving, and emotionally exhausting year. The fact that I had amazing friends to pick me up by my boot straps and kick you into high gear. (I'm hard on myself, and its good to have people that will not let you self indulge in your defeats) 

I went public with my blog this year! I started telling people that this was a thing I consistently did. (for the past three year) I am still working on growing it, but I am loving every single moment of it. Not only have I made it public, but I started doing blog photos! And there are still come more surprises up my sleeve for the rest of the year. 

Being in post grad life I have kept up with travel this year. Not nearly the same as last year, I will never travel that much ever again. Vancouver was one of my favorites this year, and I even have a couple more trips planned for the rest of the year. (Looks like you will have to stay tuned!)

As for Des Moines living, I am soo surprised with how much I love it here. It is kind of weird how things work out. I bought a pillow with New York on it when I first moved here. (It is super cute, trendy, and preppy)  It is a little reminder that sometimes dreams do not work out, so something just as great can fill its place. Never in a million year would  I have thought I would be where I am today, and that is one part scary and one part amazing. It kind of goes to show your plan is not always the best plan. 

I know this is kind of vague, but as I said in January. I am weirdly happy. Post grad was the move. I love that quote that says, "Some years ask questions, and other years answer them" I do not know what the rest of 2017 will be, but the first part was pretty stellar.

  1. I am loving the mid-year review. It is especially nice to take a look at how your year has turned out and if you were looking to accomplish something. Great post!
