2017 was a crazy ride, to say the least. There were many ups, downs, good and bad but I’m extremely grateful for everything I went through the past year. The year started off with a small family staycation celebrating my parent’s 30th wedding anniversary in Napa. Soon after, wedding planning was in full effect! Within the first few months of 2017, my then-fiancé and I secured a venue (which was a long process, but we knew we found the one). Then, I went on the hunt for a wedding dress, which wasn’t really a hunt because the first appointment I made was when I found THE ONE. So unexpected, but so thankful that my wedding dress search wasn’t a stressful one at all! Shortly after, my younger sis graduated and received her bachelor’s degree at SFSU. More wedding planning in between. We bought our photobooth. Then my MOH (my sis) and bridesmaids threw me the most amazing bridal shower EVER! Then, on November 3rd, I got married! Hands down, highlight of my year! My now husband and I flew to Hawaii and spent our honeymoon in paradise, flew back home after a week, then took a road trip to SoCal to finish our honeymoon. Then, the holidays came around and we celebrated our “first” Thanksgiving and Christmas together. In between the holidays, my little sis got engaged! We were there to witness the whole thing and it was an awesome day! Now, here we are, on the very last day of 2017 and as I’m reflecting on the past year, I can’t help but feel so blessed beyond measure. God is SO good.
As I go into 2018, resolutions are going to be made, but what’s most important to me is that I have my health, family, husband, close friends and faith. With God by my side, I can do all things and I’m looking forward to everything 2018 has to offer. Checking out of 2017, but I’m ready for you 2018! Wishing everyone a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
