Hello Everyone! I wanted to use my Wednesday post to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! I love learning about the bloggers that I follow so I thought I would open up a bit in this post and just share a bit about me and a bit about my past year!

This year has certainly been a busy one! I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biology and Physiology. I started my blog. I got engaged. I forgot to get my flu shot and now I’m sick (oops…). That last one really isn’t noteworthy but you know.

My fiancés name is George and he is a Materials Engineer. He’s obviously hilarious and wonderful and I won’t go on and on and make you want to puke. Suffice it to say he’s my partner in all things. Including our very skilled dance and singing performances.

I have been extremely blessed this year and I just want to thank all of my amazing readers for your lovely feedback and comments. You guys truly are the best. The blogging community is so supportive and wonderful! If you’ve been on the edge on whether to start a blog, I say go for it!

Let me know what you are doing for the Holidays and what exciting things happened to you in 2015!

All photos were taken at Longwood Gardens by my father. It’s a tradition of ours to go the day after Thanksgiving and enjoy the lights and the Christmas display!

    You sound like you have had such a lovely year, congratulations on getting engaged too! The pictures are lovely, and it’s so cute that you have a tradition each year too. I had my blog for one year last month, so that was pretty exciting. I also started a Youtube channel. So hopefully all of the new ventures that we did in 2015 will grow in 2016. Have a lovely Christmas and New Year too.:) x
