2016 Year In Review

2016 was by far the craziest year of my life. There were so many new friendships, new jobs, new travels, new loves, new dislikes, major life changes - and most importantly, so much self growth. And I mean self growth in my business and self growth in my personal life. I couldn't be more grateful for the year I've had. I am thankful for the good days and the bad days and everything in between. Enough chit chat though! Let's take a look at 2016 in what I do best - photos. (ps. they're in no particular order. I don't have the patience for that, hehe). 

 I drank A LOT OF COFFEE. And took a lot of pictures of coffee...Like, a lot.

 One of my favorite parts of 2016 was falling in love with DC after living so close (and strongly disliking it) for the past 20 years.
