My Year in Review

You guys!!! It's 2017!! Where did the time go? Does anyone else feel like when you talk about anything that happened in the 90's it was still only 10 years ago? I don't know why my brain can't handle that we are 17 years into the 2000's. Anyways, this has been a great year. It has had it's ups and downs for sure, but I am so happy with where we are and what we are doing. I, like every other blogger on the face of this earth, was reviewing all of the highlights of the past year and wanted to share a few of them with you.


One of my favorite memories of 2017 was a surprise sailing date with my sweet husband. We had such a beautiful and relaxing day on the bay. San Diego Sailing Tours did a phenomenal job and I highly suggest using them if you are ever in San Diego. 


Another highlight for us was our quick trip to San Francisco and Napa. I was born and raised in California and I have never been to either place so it was one of those trips that just needed to happen. It was also a sweet surprise from that handsome guy for our anniversary. Because of some work obligations it had to be a pretty quick trip, but we made it happen and it was a blast. We hope to go back sometime soon. 

As far as the blog goes, it was a fun year and getting accepted into the RewardStyle program was a goal that was met. I struggled at the beginning of the summer with direction and interest for more reasons than many of you know, but I made the decision to pick myself up and fully reassess everything. I have been and still am trying to focus in on what the future of this blog should be and I am looking forward to 2017 as a year to really refine those thoughts and ideas. 

Our 2016 fair season was record setting! It flew by, which is something I have never said before, and Tony had so much growth in terms of refining many of the roles he plays in his company. 


We went on an incredible vacation when we got off the road and were able to rest and reconnect after a very busy five months on the road. You can read more about that wonderful getaway here. After getting back from this trip, we turned around the next week and went to Vegas with Tony's entire family. It was truly one of our best trips as a family and it provided so many good memories for all of us. 


Another huge moment in time happened when we became Godparents to this little cutie. Hannah is such a blessing to her mommy and daddy (Tony's brother and sister-in-law) and we are so honored to be her Godparents.


Last, but definitely not least, I think we had one of the best Christmas seasons ever. Everyone was together, on amazing behavior and my step-sister got engaged.

As I look back, I know there were a few not-so-fantastic times in 2016, but most do not even come to mind unless I try hard to dig them up. It was a beautiful year. We are so thankful for God's grace and love and we cannot wait to see what He has in store for us in 2017!

I hope your 2017 is as beautiful as you are!
