Iceland Revisited

Cheers to 2017

Wasn’t I just writing up my ‘Cheers to 2016‘ post?! Someone, please alert Father Time for he must’ve pressed fast forward or something. This time last year I was still temping around NYC, getting ready for a European adventure and learning to love, long-distance.

I’M HAVING ONE OF THOSE DAYS. Quick, someone turn on a romcom and hand me some chocolate.

How can that not make you smile? Pups have so much pure happiness, it’s so freakin’ heartwarming.

Embrace your friends.

Thank You!

Today I’ve hit 125 followers. Wooo!

I started this blog close to a year ago, back when I was working at NBC Nightly News in NYC. Soon after, I quit my job (broadcast news was not for me), started temping around NYC, traveled to the West Coast for a bit, temped some more, got a tattoo, learned violin (or at leastย attempted to…), fell in love and traveled to Europe for three weeks. Oh, and ate tonsย of deliciousย food along the way.

Still figuring out my life at the moment…I hope y’all continue to follow my journeys along the way!

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
