A Recap of all of the Wonderfully Amazing Things that Happened in 2017


2017 has been a really great year. It’s not one of those years that I’m ready to see go… although I am excited to see what lies ahead in 2018. This year though, a lot of awesome things have happened both in my life and in the world as a whole. So, as we wave goodbye to 2017, here’s a recap of all of the amazing things that have happened this year.

I more than doubled my blog traffic – meaning there’s more of you amazing people reading what I write every day and I could not be more honored! Thanks to all 50K of you!!


I became a homeowner.

A group of beachgoers in Panama City saved a family from drowning by creating a human chain.


I celebrated my one year anniversary with the hubs and took an anniversary trip that was one for the books!


Price Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged! We’re going to have an American princess y’all!


My sister and I took a birthday trip to Washington, D.C.! The sites, the food, the city… all amazing!


I took my first solo flight.

The University of Georgia football program had the best season I’ve seen in a while.


My sister and I walked in our first Susan G. Komen 3-Day in San Diego, CA.

The Wonder Woman movie came out and not only was it spectacular, but it was a huge step for women as well. Anyone else as obsessed with Gal Gadot as I am?!


My sister and I visited the West Coast for the first time.

Starbucks came out with the Unicorn Frappucino.


My brother and sister-in-law got married.

Beyonce had twins!!


Bryan and I were blessed with a sweet, baby nephew.

Taylor Swift dropped a new album… that I’m obsessed with!


I got my eyebrows microbladed – life changer.

The first total solar eclipse since 1979 occurred.

A million other amazing things! Although I know our country saw a lot of heartbreak this year between shootings and hurricanes and fires and more, I’m so glad to see us all showing a little more love and taking life a little less for granted.

So, here’s one last cheers to 2017 and I wish you all a very happy new year!
