Cheers to the final post for 2016! Woo hoo. And I thought this dress was a perfect ending as it was my favorite outfit of the year. ;)
I'm feeling so nostalgic today ... and have been going through many of my pictures from the year to be reminded of the memories we've made. There is so much I could say about 2016 and to tell the truth, it was personally a rough one. I've never been comfortable with sharing details about myself or my family life, and even struggle with sharing personal triumphs with others. I read many doing these sorts of things as they recap the end of their years but again, it's just not something I love to do. So of course, the struggles are even less likely to ever have writing time here but they are there. Just in case you thought I wasn't #be(ing)authentic. ;) Just don't think authenticity or complaining on my social channels is what you really visit for. So I'll stick with the happy stuff as I ring in the new year.
As we move forward into 2017 I hope to continue blogging when I can with a focus on an intentional life lived finding the beauty in the everyday and enjoying the loveliest parts of our ordinary lives - family, creativity, fashion, beauty. When things get a little scary or sad, these moments are even more important, aren't they? Because we forget to see the good in our lives. So while there are the other sides of everything and life can be quite yuck ... there's always a sparkly green dress and a hot pink lipstick combo to cheer us up.
Cheers to you on this last evening of 2016! We're off to dinner with our fam here in Tulsa and have big plans to celebrate the night away in sparkly dresses with a fancy dinner, drinks and party games. We'll see how far we get. Ha! I am most definitely a grandma in the making but I'm going to give it a good shot. Lots of love!
