Hello 2017,

As I reflect on 2016, this has been one of the greatest and most challenging years of my life. I know I have not posted a blog in a while, so allow me to give you an update. I am newly engaged to my best friend, James. He has surprised me with a birthday trip, and little did I know, a proposal in Disneyland! *heart eyes emoji If you know me, I love ANYTHING Disney! If you want to watch the full video, click here!

Oh, did I mention that our Surprise Disneyland Proposal was recognized on TV show Right This Minute?!?! HOW COOL IS THAT?

You guys, that was the best trip of my life. My family and friends were involved in my surprise engagement, at my favorite place in the world, during Christmas time (my favorite time) ON MY BIRTHDAY. Hats off to James. I can't believe he pulled all of that off.

Time to plan a wedding! Where do I even start?!

ALSO, James and I are currently in the process of buying our first home! It has been a long and stressful process, but we could not be more excited. We are both so grateful to have this opportunity. We are so excited to make memories in a brand new house with our pups!

Lastly, James and I are in the works of starting a side business! Together, him and I have been making videos / short films for over two years. It is a passion we both have and love the creativity we can put into our content. So this year alone, we have filmed three weddings, a baby shower, and lots of other small videos. If you want to watch one of our more recent weddings, click here! We have always loved video making, but never thought of it becoming a career/ side job until recently. We are excited to see where this will lead us!

2017 is going to be the start of so many new and exciting things. Wedding planning, new house, new business, and new opportunities! I am fully committed to making the year 2017 better than the last. I am committed to myself and my dreams. I am committed to new adventures. I am committed trying new things.
