Some of my favorite moments of 2017..

2017 was a year of growth, acceptance, love, loss and soooooo manyyy feels.

As I reread my post from last year on all the things I’m changing.. I realized how wonderful this year truly was. I loved, I lost, I laughed, I cried, I gave love another chance, I traveled, I grew, I wrote more, I said “yes” more, I’ve finished 3 books this year, I’ve been cooking like crazy and ya girl has been niceeeeee in the kitchen and I became more aware of the world around me. Though some things may have gotten the best of me, I am so happy to go into 2018 with the soul I have. Every second has prepared me for this current moment in my life and I can feeeeel the glitter in my veins. I’m meant to shine. 2018 is mine.

But before I live toooo much in the future, here’s a recap of my favorite moments in 2017…

I met an extraordinary group of wonderful young women and their families. This was my first year as a head coach and truly.. these kids will be in my heart forever. I learned from them much more than I can say I taught them. Proud is an understatement, love is such a small word to fathom how they make my heart light up. I love you all dearly.
