Oh, 2015. What a year. Where to begin?

This year seems to have passed in the blink of an eye. It was a blur of a year, and I can hardly remember the first few months of it, but it sure was filled with lots of amazing memories.

The first few months of 2015 were mostly filled with excitement, anticipation, and preparation for mine and Madi's trip to Thailand in April. We worked hard, and planned like crazy, and it paid off with the results of a trip of a lifetime.

This summer was a sweet one. It was jam packed with work, lots of trips to the beach, lots of time with friends, a Tofino day trip, a few days spent in Vancouver, and a trip to Europe at the end of August. I also turned 19 this summer and celebrated for about two weeks straight, so that was pretty great too! 

Fall came slowly this year. In late October, we were still heading to the beach for sunsets multiple times a week, not even really realizing that summer had passed. It came slowly, but passed quickly. Before I knew it, it was winter and I was spending my free time baking Christmas goodies and watching Christmas movies. 

I don't quite know what to expect of 2016. I've been struggling with an internal battle of which path to choose for a while now, and can't seem to stick with a decision for long before juggling my options again. Either way, no matter which path I choose, it's gonna be a big year, and I'm excited to see how everything comes together. 

I'm grateful for another year of growing and changes, and I can't wait to see what 2016 has to offer!
