Happy 2015 y'all! Hope everyone had a fun and safe NYE! My college friends came and stayed with me in Charleston and I loved playing host in my new apartment! We had a great night cooking dinner at home and venturing downtown to a bar with live music. It was a perfect end to the year with some of my favorite people ever!

Long story short, I wrote a super detailed post yesterday recapping 2014 month by month, but of course when I tried to upload it (before heading out with friends) my internet wouldn't work. I think it was a sign from the universe reminding me to be present with those that I love rather than being online so I decided not to fight it. After re-reading the post this morning I realized it may have been too long, so I've decided to keep my new recap short and sweet:

I'm almost intimidated to try and wrap up the year in a single post! It's hard to communicate everything that 2014 brought to my life. There were so many adventures, changes, leaps of faith, accomplishments, challenges, and learning experiences.

Isn't it amazing that on January 1st we have no idea where the new year will take our lives and by December 31st we get to look back on all the memories we've made? I kind of love it. I knew it would be a huge year for me simply because of the huge life steps that naturally come with graduating college.

Many things ended, and many things began. I made new friends (lookin at you Em), traveled to amazing places, graduated college with my goal GPA, had two very different (but equally awesome) internships, got an amazing job that I'm so passionate about, moved to Charleston, and had SO much fun in between.

I know everyone says this, but 2014 truly was a wonderful year in my life and I'll always look back on it with a smile on my face. I'll be back with my 2015 goals tomorrow, but in the meantime I hope you have a wonderful January 1st! X's and O's.
