Holiday vacation is the best way to end a year and start a new one. I went home for 2 1/2 weeks and it was GLORIOUS. It was amazing to see family, friends, and be back in the city I was born and raised. My heart was so filled to see that everyone is in a really good place. Although it is always hard to say goodbye, I truly left feeling so satisfied and blessed. I am beyond fortunate to have the support group I have. So many times we take advantage of the things around us – I told myself this trip that I would make every little second count. I think I did alright – from late night conversations with the parentals to sleepless nights with friends smashing grilled cheese, listening to records and sipping on coffee (or wine).
Life is a beautiful gift. Spend it with the people you love, the ones that inspire you, the ones that make you better, the ones that stretch you and make you see things different.
Cheers to new adventures in 2017.
