In January, I went to my first Grace Family Church Women's Conference, Fearless. The special guest speaker was Lisa Bevere. AMAZING!
In February, I hosted my first GALentine's Soiree with a few of my close friends. We enjoyed wine and a chocolate fondue.
In March/April, the Mr and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary in Nashville, Tennessee and the Mr.'s 38th birthday.
In May, we celebrated my 33rd birthday with a short stay at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. Around that same time, I started a new role in a new group.
In June, we saw Finding Neverland at the Strazz, however no pics!
In July, we took a summer vacation in St Augustine for the extended fourth of July and we saw the Little Mermaid show.
In August, I went to Las Vegas for a week to attend the annual ALPFA Convention and wrapped up the week with a girls weekend in Vegas which included seeing Britney for her Piece of Me show. Since I didn't write any blog posts about my trip I am sharing a few extra pics from that trip.
We were on a Britney high the day after... sported our new Britney tanks to brunch. Ha!
In September, I filmed my first YouTube video! I've done three so far to see how I liked doing it. I've been on a little hiatus the past couple months due to the holidays and lighting situation (thanks to Daylight Savings). Now that I received a ring light for Christmas, I plan on getting back to the filming this new year. Get ready y'all!
We also prepared and braced for Hurricane Irma. Fortunately, we did not have any damage or loss of power.
In October, I hosted my annual Pumpkin Painting Party. I also got a job promotion to a manager role at work.
In November, we hosted our first Thanksgiving in our house with my family. We also went to our first college football game to watch the UF Gators vs FSU Seminoles.
In December, we did not hold back with the Christmas activities!
I have to say, overall, 2017 was a pretty good year for me. I got to travel to new places, my career took a turn for the better, and I was able to host quite a few gatherings at my house.
I am very grateful for all the blessings and opportunities I've had as I know that 2017 was a difficult year for many due to either natural disasters or disasters from the hands of others. I don't want to ever take for granted what God has done for me and always give HIM the glory.
Finally, as a sweet ending to this year and in preparation for 2018, the Mr. and I will be getting massages. Very much needed R&R before we go back to work. Tonight, I will be ringing in the new year at a friend's house. This lady is too old to be going out to the party scene for the festivities. Ha! However you choose to celebrate... Best wishes to you all, stay safe and we shall chat again in the new year!
