Looking back on 2016, it was obviously a hard year for all involved. So many insane and sad things happened it was almost hard to remember the good. As I was looking through my camera roll last night, I realized that so much has happened that I haven’t even appreciated. I can’t believe how much I have grown this year as a person. There are so many things that I still need to work on, but I wanted to just write this blog post to take a moment to reflect and also see what I want to improve on during this beautiful new year that is 2017 🙂 .
A huge thing that happened in 2016 was moving into my own apartment. I remember it like it was yesterday … all those mixed feelings at that time. The first time at my apartment I only had a totally new blanket my mom gave me, a pillow, a laptop, and random plants everywhere in my tiny new space that I today call home. I sent my mom photos of my home when i was done putting everything on place; letting her see that I was ok and so was my home.
Whenever I see those pictures is a tug at my heart that just reminds me of how lucky I am and how much things can grow and be created. Now my apartment is my literal sanctuary. I don’t even think I would change anything about it, which is huge for me to say since I am always fussing around with styling and interior.
Another thing that I am just so happy about is my blog and how I really know what my style is now–what I love to photograph, what kind of mood I want to capture, what clothes I actually like, what I want my future career to be. I have experimented with all types of styles in the past, and if you scroll back into the archives of my blog (please don’t) you can see how my style has evolved every year. I feel like now I truly know what I like and what I don’t like; something I have been working on for so long. Obviously my style will continue to change, but at least I feel like I have a really good grip on it now.
I also want to thank you guys for supporting me SO much. I would be nowhere if it wasn’t for you all. You make my heart full and you make my dreams literally come true. It is such a pleasure to talk with you guys, to give advice here & snapchat , making blog posts that you guys like and are helpful to you. That is why I do all of this, just because I want to be able to make a little difference in this hectic world. All I want to do is to make others happy or just feel a certain mood and to help. Thank you again just to those who have been with me since the beginning or have just started following me! It has been such a wonderful journey.
I HONESTLY & GENUINELY LOVE YOU.
