New Year’s in Asheville is off to an exciting start – a winter storm of epic proportions. It took me 3 hours to get from downtown back to my apartment this afternoon. Roads are covered in ice, traffic was at a standstill on all the major highways, 15 mph winds, temps in the teens, and the snow is steady falling as I type this. Auld Lang Syne, indeed.
2017 has been one of the most eventful years of my life; it was a transitional year. A year of constant change and uncertainty. 2017 was about finding my new normal.
This year brought a lot of excitement, tears, disappointment, heartache, laughter, and inner-strength that I managed to find deep within myself. I picked up my life and moved across the country to a brand new city. I took a leap of faith and started over. It’s been a very challenging year, but definitely not a bad one. I have a new career that I love, I’ve traveled to some amazing places, made a couple new friends, gained a beautiful and healthy new niece, and I’m still standing.
Here are some of my favorite moments from 2017. Cheers to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2018! Happy New Year, y’all! #adventureawaits
