A bit of reflection on this year: 2015 had some wonderful moments for me. I checked two beautiful countries off my travel bucket list: Australia and Greece. Sean and I celebrated our first anniversary and have continued to learn and grow as a married couple. I achieved a number of career goals, including testifying before my state legislature and completing a very serious and complicated trial.
The year also brought some difficult times, including the loss of my dear grandmother and sweet family dog. I took a break from blogging in April and May to focus on keeping myself physically and emotionally healthy while dealing with the hard stuff. I am very thankful for all the readers and friends who have supported me and kept reading here after the break. Your continued kindness, insight, and support have been invaluable to me this year.
I am very excited for the new year and all the adventures it will bring, and I am hopeful that all of my family, friends, and readers stay healthy and happy.
Hope your 2016 is filled with all the best of everything!
