2015 Recap

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

Wow! What a year it’s been! I feel like I’ve grown so much this year and have been blessed with some pretty awesome experiences. I’m heading out of 2015 with a heart full of love and gratitude and looking forward to 2016!

Here’s what my life looked like in 2015:


  • We rang in the New Year with an awesome, huge party at our house (we had moved in the November before so it was the first big celebration that we hosted in this house) and I was cleaning up confetti for months!
  • Jeff and I took our first plane ride together and visited NYC to celebrate my 24th birthday! It was the first time in the Big Apple for both of us and quickly became a city we loved!

  • My cousin Sharee had a beautiful wedding here in Orlando and married a pretty awesome guy who fits right in the family!
  • We saw Luke Bryan in concert and he was amazing!


  • We cheered on our brand new Orlando City Soccer team at their first game!

  • I experienced life without Spring Break in my first full year in the working world and it was an adjustment…


  • My good friend Adiana got married to her high school sweetheart!

2015 was a great year that ended even better than I could have imagined so 2016 has a lot to live up to! I can’t wait to see what is has in store for me!

Happy New Year!!
