happy holidays, my loves! it’s been a crazy year, full of ups and down– one that passed all too quickly, and i’m kind of sad it’s over. i feel like i got so much older in such a short period of time. still, there are more adventures awaiting all of us in the new year. 2018 is starting to look more and more familiar as i write and type it, and i’m truly excited to step into it with so many new friends. although i cannot encompass everyone who made an impact on me this year (as it would be all several thousand of my followers), i want to show my most sincere gratitude to some of the people who have made this year an especially good one.
