2017 was definitely a year of transformation! It was a year full of shifting, experiencing and accepting. It was by far my most daring and liberating year yet! I cried sooooo much this year, but often they were tears of joy & gratitude. My faith was tested in more ways than I could have imagined, and strengthened in more ways than I can express. Although this year was filled with so many amazing memories, I wanted to share 23 of some of the most memorable and magical moments that pushed me way out of my comfort zone and filled me with joy! Thank you to all who shared this beautiful year with me. You have truly enriched my life.
