Travel Recap: Miami, FL

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.

4th of July Recap

It was a 4-day weekend…which means going back to work is a real struggle. It was wonderful to take a break from the everyday, enjoy good company, and take some time to be thankful for life and the country we live in.

Here are a few photos from the long weekend. Hope yours was a memorable one too!

Thanksgiving Recap

Although I was far from my family during the holiday I had lovely friends (and their families) that adopted me for Thanksgiving. I am beyond grateful for the friends I have made – the Lord really does take care of everything when you trust him.

I wish I could say I made smart food choices but instead I just learned that I am really good at consuming carbs. No regrets.

Goodbye cold weather, hello Sunshine State! I’m off to Miami this holiday break to be surrounded by family, friends and sun. I love this time of year — and I love staring at palm trees and having hot chocolate in spite of the 80 degree weather.
