Not to dwell too much in the past, because I ain't about all that business, but I wanted to share a few photos from 2015 before officially posting anything on the blog this year. Although, it is officially this year, if we're being technical, but let's just move past it, cool?
Also, taking the blog in a slightly different direction. Going to post stuff about my own crazy life, as usual, but also want to start posting things that inspire me, things I'm learning about and find interesting (and hopefully you will too!) and things I want to put to writing so I can remember them. Because if I take a pen to paper to remember things, they inevitably end up in a drawer somewhere, never to be seen again. And I've got some pretty profound things to say, but you're not surprised or anything, right?
Anyways, just a few photos from last year.. a lot of them are with Raleigh, my nephew, sorry not sorry.

1// Never Settle...this started off a year of doodling people's life mantras (pretty profound stuff, right?) I wrote this one down, kind of loved it, posted it to Facebook, and then people started asking me if I could write their mantras. I had a lot of fun with that...going to pick that back up in 2016, fsho.
2// The moment Raleigh asked me to be his godmother, which had my heart all fluttery. That kid. He is my favorite human.
3// A great year with my beautiful bestie. We both had quite the year, but through it all, we had each other. And greasy breakfast food. We relived our college glory days, spent time in South Haven, hit the town, shopped til we dropped, all that good bestie stuff.
4// South Haven proved as amazing as ever this year. My fam added an addition to our tiny little spot (remember when Airstreams were an option?!), so it's now a spot we can all go (at the same time!) and not be all up in each others business. Not to mention my parents let my sister and I decorate the new place, so we went kind of nuts and had way too much fun with that. And the place looks flipping awesome...my side table is an old library catalog. I KNOW.
5// Sharing this shameless selfie because I wanted to remember the hair transformation I went through this year. When I hit the job market this year (and I hit it hard!), I decided to dye my hair a little bit darker (although this is the lighter version), as apparently blondes don't have as much fun job hunting and all that business. So I did, I went darker - I mean, there was DARKNESS all up in there. And it worked! My hair and my qualifications got me a new, amazing job at such an awesome place, but it was mostly my hair. Personality shmersonality.
6// Continued my love affair with rugs and Converse this year. I put this pic in this mix mostly because I liked my jeans in this picture and I can't seem to find them, so this is my unofficial reminder to look for them.
7// This kid. I'm serious, you guys. Not just a biased aunt talking, but he's such a good person. And he's insanely funny. And he thinks I'm funny, which I plan to take full advantage of until he's old enough to know better.
