The Best of 2018


I can't believe 2018 is already over. I feel like I just blinked and now it's 2019. I've come to the conclusion that your twenties are such a weird age. On a day to day basis, life pretty much feels like an uphill battle. But when I look back at the past year, it was one of the best I've ever had. It was a year of growth both personally and professionally.

In 2018, I decided what my future career path will be when I finish college. I completely redecorated our home, my photography business grew like I never could have expected. I got my first set of stitches and had another year-long uphill battle with my health. I traveled to many places - 4 months living in Texas, trips to Florida, Baton Rouge, and Grand Cayman. I accomplished so much in the last 12 months, and most important of all, I was SO HAPPY this past year. For the last half of this post, I wanted to share some of my favorites of 2018.


GROWING MY BLOG
This year, my blog grew exponentially. I had so many amazing opportunities and was able to partner with brands that I had only ever dreamed of working with. I spent countless hours shooting photos and writing posts and re-shooting photos and answering emails and staring at a computer screen...All of my hard work finally started to pay off in 2018, and I can't wait to see where the new year takes me.
