Well, the sun is setting on another year! Cliche? Yes….but then I get to use my sunset picture!
This past year was full of ups and downs, as all years are. There were some major losses and disappointments……but I’m deciding to focus on the positives of 2017. Maybe this is my resolution for 2018, but it really should be an everyday thing. So I’m leaving all the pain, bitterness, sadness, and loss of this year where it should stay. In 2017.
This year was filled with some amazing times and opportunities!!! I can never be more grateful for all the things I’ve been able to do and the amazing people who were part of it!
Just to name a few of the highlights…..I was part of an amazing group of people who pulled off the extremely successful Pink Tie Ball in February! We raised $20K to help those affected by breast cancer in our community! I made the decision to leave my job at Komen Michigan and take on a new role in my life with Studio I, and am currently training to be a fitter for mastectomy bras and prosthetics! I’ve seen so many concerts my head is spinning! Some of my favorites were Rusted Root, Phish, all the incredible acts at Bonnaroo, including one of my all time favorites, MARTINA MCBRIDE!!!! I was able to visit family over spring break and see some great sites! I witnessed 3 beautiful people get married! I took a baby step back in to photography, something I’ve missed so much! All of my kiddos are healthy and thriving, and my hubby is doing great in his business! And most recently…..I put myself in to the world of blogging!
Check out the slide show below of some of my favorite moments! This also allowed me to indulge in my obsession with collages 😉
Thank you to everyone who made 2017 a memorable year. I do realize how blessed I am to be here and see another year begin! Happy New Year!!!
