2017…oh, what a year!! This year is sure one for the record books — from the personal to the political and everything in between! I’m pretty sure you’d agree with me too! There were ups and downs. Highs and lows. Happiness and heartbreak. Wonderful people came into my life while other people made an unexpected exit. Yes, 2017 wasn’t a year for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. But now that the year is almost over, I thought now would be the perfect time for a little happy holidays and looking back 2017 fun! You know I’m always up for some quality reflection, so without further ado, here’s a look back at the past year on So About What I Said…
***But the things I’m MOST PROUD of…?? My freelance writing career in 2017. It grew by leaps and bounds in the last 12 months, and I scored bylines in The New York Times, Glamour, Good Housekeeping (print!!), Racked, Ravishly, SheKnows, CNN and Country Living! And, I was featured in the amazing Pantsuit Nation book!! #ImStillWithHer
So, that’s where I am as we say goodbye to 2017 and get ready to usher in 2018. I’m not sure what the new year will bring, but I’m pretty confident that life can only go up from here. I am so thankful for you, dear readers, and this journey you’re on with me! The community that this blog has created has given me strength, lifted me up in my darkest hours and just generally brought a smile to my face each and every day. Thank you for being here and being so awesome!
Here’s hoping you’re all in the festive spirit and surrounded by the people you love most! We’ll be back to regular posting on January 3rd, so look for more of your favorites in 2018 — and, of course, never hesitate to let me know what you’d like to see by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org!!!
