Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?! I can’t! Next thing you know, it’ll be 2018. OMG!!! I feel like the year flew by so quick. But I also feel this way around this year every year. Anyone else?
I love the holidays only because everyone is always so merry and gay and full of love and happiness, and I love it all. I wish we could all be this way all year long and not just around the holidays – but something about the holidays and this time of year just makes you feel this way, and puts you in a jolly ol’ mood. Agree or disagree?
Here are 5 things I’m looking forward to this holiday…
Spending time with friends and family.
Playing games, like Catch Phrase and Cards Against Humanity. So much fun!
New Years is by far one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. I love dressing up and being so festive and surrounded by the most important people in my life.
I love watching Christmas movies.
And last but not least (my favorite favorite of all favorite things), I’m so ready for Tamales!

I really don’t know where to begin. This is the last outfit of 2016. The last of everything for 2016.
Sigh… this year has probably been the best and worst for me. The best because I got married. The worst because a lot of tragedies occurred. 2016 was like a really long nightmare.
I know every year we hear the “I can’t wait for the new year”, “I’m so over this year”, “New year, new me” blah blah blah on social media – but honestly, I couldn’t be more excited about 2017. I don’t think I’ve been so over a year as much as I am for 2016.
I’m ready. I’m ready for new clean slate. To accomplish new goals in my career, in life, and my personal life. Last year’s resolution was “taking more breaks to enjoy the ride”. And I did. I took more breaks to enjoy life, my friends, my family, my husband. I’m carrying this resolution over with me into 2017.
Before I go, I do want to take the time to say thank you to you all. Thank you for joining me on this crazy-not-sure-what-i’m-doing journey. Your support means everything to me. After so many years of blogging, I still ask myself why do people follow me on instagram? Why do people even care what I have to say? But I am so grateful and blessed beyond to have you all. Thank you a million times. Love all my boos.
At last, 2014 has come to an end. Time to close the 2014 book and start a new page. A new book for 2015. Time really does fly when you’re having fun!
As I look back and reflect on not only this year but a couple of years back, I’ve seen how much I’ve grown as a person. When I first started my blog in 2010, I use to worry about others’ acceptance. It use to be so difficult for me to put myself out there for others to judge me. I was that girl who wanted so badly to please others rather than focusing on myself and what brings joy to my life. It may have taken me a few years but 2014, has taught me a lot. It has taught me to focus on progression, not perfection. I’ve learned that a person can criticize me based off what they see on social media, which is fine. People can make whatever they’d like out of what I allow to share through social media but they don’t validate who I am. I know who I am. I’m not perfect and I’m happy I’m not. I like who I am. This year, I’ve slowly but surely learned to let go of caring what others think of me – including friendships, unfortunately. I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships and forced interactions. Sometimes you outgrow people and that’s okay.
The highlight of 2014, was my recent engagement to the most amazing person in my life. My love. My soulmate. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect to me.
My New Years resolution for 2015 is to continue to be a better me. To not stress over the little things that do not matter. Instead, focus on the people that matter – my family, my friends. And lastly, I’d like to thank my followers for joining me on this journey. I’m forever grateful for each of you for being so kind and lovely.
2015, I’m ready for you. I’m ready to begin page 1 of 365. Goodbye 2014, hello 2015.
