Happy New Year, friends! I hope 2016 is treating you well.

Cheers to an amazing 2015! // Twin Stripe

2015 sure seemed to fly! I kicked off the year with a trip to the Dominican Republic with a group of graduate students. I attended two blog conferences, #SBSCon and Haven, learned a ton, made new brand contacts and most importantly, connected with fellow blog friends. I also collaborated with fellow bloggers on numerous projects, including   Sweet Summer Supper and Bright Blog Bash. Overall, it’s been a fun and busy year. It wanted to say goodbye to 2015 by sharing some of my favorites from the year. Enjoy!

Cheers to a wonderful 2015! I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings. I will be changing my blogging schedule up a bit. I only plan to blog twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday’s due the launch of my new business where I will be blogging once a week as well.
