The Yearly Reflection

2020: A Year in Review

Every year, I look back at the year prior usually in the form of photos, but I journal too. I look back to review the life I lived, how I lived it, and who I lived it with. I look back to see if I’ve found my “why” yet in life, to see if I […]


Thank you for all of the well wishes, calls, and messages yesterday! This years celebration was much more tame. I’d even dare to take celebration out of the mix completely and call it “just another day.” Though, it wasn’t just another day because I think birthdays are something special! My 30th year wasn’t at all […]

2019: A Year in Review

Ya girl here with an annual update of all things ME! because it’s okay to channel TSwift on a semi-regular basis. After all, they say you need to love yourself before you can truly love others and that was the very-much-intentional theme for my 2019. (#unintentionalrhyme) While I didn’t fully accomplish the “love yo’ self” […]


Thank you for all of the calls, texts, Happy Birthday songs, posts, gigantic balloons, and love this last week and weekend! The world sure knows how to help a girl ring in 30 with style. Last year, I made a promise to myself to let 29 be the best year yet and on a rare […]

2018: A Year in Review

January 1st is one of my favorite days. Not only because it’s the symbol of a “fresh start” to a healthier life both physically and mentally but because I like to take the time to review how the year in our rearview mirrors really went. Last year on this very day, I was hurting. My […]

Farewell to you, 2017.

The New Year has always been one of my favorite times. Not because years past have been crap but because the symbol of a New Year brings so much hope to the possibility of good things yet to come. I took some time today to look back at all the photos I’ve taken and shared […]

New Year Improvements

New Year, New You. New Years Resolutions. New Year, I’m going to stay the same asshole I’ve always been. Whatever you want to call it, that’s what this post is about. We’re on day 3 of 2016 and it kind of feels the same as day 3 after your birthday. You feel the same but […]

2015: A Year in Review

What a year, huh? I know 20-15 isn’t quite over but I’ve been thinking a lot about the past and present. I seem to dwell on it all. There are a couple words that I would use to explain year two thousand and fifteen including “adventure” and “acceptance” and “family” and “money” or “lack thereof.” […]

The Yearly Cliché.

A couple years ago, I wrote about not making New Years Resolutions but instead making smaller goals each month to try and stay on track. It worked for awhile just like every other variation of a resolution does. But somewhere along the way, it quietly vanished. This year, I’m going to revert to the more […]

Guess What Day It Is!

Get it? Because it’s hump day and January 1st all rolled into one ridiculous reference to a camel focused insurance commercial. Laugh. If you think about it, the calendar is a funny thing. An important “thing” but a funny one at that. The calendar defines us as human beings. It determines our age, the day […]

New You.

As most people know, New Years Resolutions are always the hardest promises to keep to ourselves.  I started a New You New Year edition of resolutions in January and stuck pretty close to it for a few months.  About the same time a lot of my relationship problems started arising; I found it harder and harder to keep focus […]
