2017 RECAP

And just when I got used to dating things 2017, the year has come and gone. Typical. Oh well.  

2017 was a fun year for me. Yes, there were just as many downs as there were ups, but by golly, it was fun! 

I had my first ever trip out of the country this past year! I hope it’s the first of many more to come! I traveled to MD, NC, GA, FL, UT, and AZ this year! Almost all of them were photography related! Such a blessing!

I’ve also decided that food and traveling are my love languages! hahaha. Is that even a thing? Well, I just made it one! 😛 

2017 was a year of learning curves and I have a feeling there is still a lot for me to learn in 2018! Hopefully I’m ready for the challenge! 😉 

Anyway, here’s a recap of my 2017! No big deal, but you can check out some highlights below!
