Daniel and I celebrated our three year anniversary this year!!! ❤️  We certainly had our ups and downs, but I've learned that it's easier to forgive people when you separate their actions from their intentions. He made this year truly memorable and has been there for me through everything. I'm so fricken excited to make more memories with my best friend in 2018!!!

I went into my final year of university this year and I still haven't grasp the idea that I'm graduating this coming year!!! I can't wait to show you guys my final project in April!

I landed two internships this year!! I worked as a photography intern for TTC and currently work as a web and marketing assistant for York University! The little old me, who couldn't find a job two summers ago, would've never thought that she could add these work experiences to her resume. ☺️ I'm excited to see what job opportunities there are for me in the new year!

This year, I took my workout regime more seriously and fell back in love with jogging! Finding the motivation to work out can be hard, but I've learned that you never regret doing it once you're done! I am determined to be in the best shape of my life this year. 💪🏻

This year, I've learned that you make way more friends when you stop trying to be interesting and started being genuinely interested in people! I had the chance to meet (and got closer to) so many new people this year! I also feel so lucky that I still have a core group of girlfriends to turn to and that the Fab 4 convo is still going strong 5 years later. ❤️

This year, we got a new addition to the family! Baby Mya! I didn't think it was possible to love someone so much!!!!! I'm so excited to watch her grow up! 🌸

I had the chance to visit Vancouver and Punta Cana this year!!! These trips made me realize that I should travel more while I'm young. I really hope that I'm able to save up and treat myself to a nice graduation trip in 2018! I also want to start getting out of my comfort zone this year and try out new things, like vlogging and swimming!!! 😄

My blog turned 8 years old this year!!! ✨ For those that have been following along on my adventures this year (and the previous years), I want to say thank you!!!! I'm so grateful for each and every one of you because I know I'm not the best blogger out there. I do not post consistently, I'm not good at taking photos of everything that happens in my life, I don't post frequently on social media and I don't blog about relevant topics. With that said, I'm always shocked when someone tells me that they read this little ol' thing!

I always hope that you guys leave my blog feeling uplifted or inspired in some way. Can't wait to see what 2018 brings and to continue sharing more with you guys!!! 💛✨😜
