2016 Highlights

Happy New Year's Eve, y'all! 2016 has really been something, huh? I have been so lucky and blessed to have met some amazing people, given into my wanderlust a bit more, and really learned more about who I am as a person.

In many ways it has been a rough and challenging year, but I really want to give a big THANK YOU to all of you who have been following along and supporting TSP.

Now on to the quick highlights!

1. Life hit me hard (school, working, trying to improve TSP) and I have not posted online as often as I have in the past, but I did work to keep up on Instagram! I was not sure if I wanted to do the "Best 9" again, but I realized it is really the best way to gauge which posts y'all really liked. I will work hard to top them all in 2017 - thanks for the 17, 319 likes!

2. I was able to cross 2 amazing cities off of my wanderlust list - Chicago and New York City! In 2016, I visited Chicago thanks to Kraft Heinz (for TSP) and I visited NYC twice (once for school, the second for a family Christmas). In January, I will also be making another quick trip to Chicago (for school)!

3. TSP has seen quite a few changes this year, from a handy-dandy personal URL to a facelift and redesign.

4. Here is a quick shoutout to all of my wonderful friends, who put up with me 1) taking pictures of their food, 2) taking pictures of them, 3) me asking them to take pictures of me, 4) taking pictures with me. Sometimes I say it is all for the blog, but honestly, the pictures are because I want to save those moments with me forever. Thank you for your friendship.

 (Unfortunately, I don't have a picture with all of my friends, but here is a cute one with a couple of them!)

5. Music is a big part of my life and I knew I had to share this. I honestly did not know Spotify was doing this "Your Top Songs 2016" thing (re: this year is the year I finally gave in and started using Spotify!) and I thought it was pretty funny. I have always told people that my music taste is eclectic but oftentimes people laugh and don't believe me - well, here's a small piece of proof!

Once again, THANK YOU, my readers, for being there for me. I hope y'all have a wonderful night tonight - be safe!

Catch you next year!
