What a year 2017 was! Personally and professionally it was one of my favorites yet and today I wanted to share a walk down memory lane with some of my favorite posts + shoots from the year. I’m also sharing the year’s most popular posts, year highlights & what I’m looking forward to in 2018. Today also happens to mark the 11 year anniversary of wit & whimsy so thank you to all of you for your continued support – I’m forever grateful for you!
Some Favorite posts from 2017:
My most popular posts this year were:
- My new apartment reveal.
- My holy grail beauty products.
- Opening up about being self-conscious.
- Deciding to speak up about using your voice.
- So you want to move to New York City.
- My go-to for affordable basics.
- How to get super glowy skin.
2017 was a year of major growth for me. I celebrated one year in business for myself, moved to Brooklyn into a place of my own (+ found my new favorite neighborhood spots), re-designed wit & whimsy, traveled to France & Italy on blog-related trips, spent a lot of time with loved ones in Northern California (5 trips there this year!), visited Minneapolis, Upstate New York, Colorado, Napa, LA and spent a blissful week in Paris. I saw friends marry and friends bring new life into the world, I saved more, I gained confidence in my skills and ability to manage two businesses, I invested in friendships new and old, I spent quality time with my family, I took time to mentor and I had the opportunity to partner with some truly amazing brands.
It was such a fulfilling year and despite all of the scary + sad things happening around us in the world, I worked to find ways to see the good in people and in life. I will be starting 2018 with hope that things will be better for our world in the days ahead.
Next year I am personally looking forward to the growth of my team for my consulting business, starting my membership at The Wing, upcoming trips to Charleston, Copenhagen, Stockholm & San Francisco, some exciting wit & whimsy partnerships and…another move (if you can believe it). Same neighborhood but planning to find a new place – more on that soon!
I’ll be sharing my 2018 goals soon and I already can’t wait to put them all down on “paper.” The last weekly roundup of the year will be live tomorrow and I hope you all have had a wonderful week. Sending each and every one of you a big hug as we begin to close out 2017!
With love & gratitude,
