2017 was an amazing year full of adventure, firsts, and growth. Even though 2017 was a great year I am SO excited for 2018! There are a few things already set but I am sure there will be more added throughout the year. In 2018 I am excited to travel throughout Europe, shoot a wedding in London, explore Lake Tahoe and shoot a wedding on the lake in a castle! Continue to fix up our backyard and hosts parties when it’s complete. Spend more time on my blog & Youtube channel. Fix my gut issues and get back to feeling great. I do have a few goals and changes I want for 2018 and here are just a few of them:

  1. Wake up earlier to fit in a morning routine.
  2. Read before bed instead of being on my phone.
  3. Post on a regular schedule every week!
  4. Stop working at night & spend time with others.

I do have some goals for my business and blog but I wont bore you with those 😉

Like I said before, and I feel like I will continue to say, I am SO excited for 2018. Thank you so much for everyone who has supported me/us over the past year(s), I think this next year will be the best one yet! Stay tuned for amazing content that I cannot wait to share with you all!
