It’s kinda a rule that you reflect on the past year in the week between Christmas and New Years. It’s more or less mandatory in the blogging world…I think they might take away your URL if you don’t write some sort of End-Of-The-Year post.
Yesterday I shared the love with some of my favorite posts that I read from others over the past year. Today it’s back to all about me. Without further ado,
12 of my favorite posts I wrote in 2017

My experience of one of the most popular NYC art exhibits of the year. It was pretty magical.

♥ 45 Things to Do Itead of Feeling Sorry for My Single Self on Valentine’s Day!

Not a fairy tale, just the true story of how I met my boyfriend.
