Welcome 2017! 2016 was for sure a better year for me than 2015 was, and I have a feeling 2017 will be even better. 

I just wanted to pop in and say thank you for spending some of your time with me here. I know I've been more absent this past year than ever before, but I still value this space. I have four videos left to edit before I can officially say goodbye to 2016, so be on the lookout for those. 

I think the calendar, although it's really nothing more than a way for us to count the time and days, is an excellent reminder for us to reflect on memories and goals. We are in this sweet spot with our family right now where travel is possible and dare I say enjoyable. So if 2017 brings us nothing more than that, I will be thrilled to see new sights with them. Sharing in the newness of places and cities with the kids is one of the greatest parts of my life at this moment.
