16 moments of 2016… and HUGE news!!

I can’t believe 2016 is almost gone. It’s funny how time passes so quickly when you’re enjoying life. And getting old. Time definitely speeds up when you’re old. One month you’re scratching out mistaken 2015’s on documents, and then before you know it you are asking yourself where the year went. Somehow you can remember every.freakin.minute you spent at work, but the weekends come as a blur. 

2016 was a year of realization, growth, and faith for me. I learned so much about myself, my friends, and my God. 

2016 was a blessing, as every year becomes.

I am alive. I am not on the streets. I am doing what I love. I have a beautiful support system. What more can I ask?

 I thought for my last post of the year I would show you some of my favorte photos and memories of the year. But stick around, I have an exciting announcement afterward. 

Here were some special moments of my year! 

1. Because pine cones just smell amazing. Not.        

2. New Orleans City Park shenanigans with my cousin.

3. One of my favorite photos from our engagement shoot.

4. My girl was stylin’ at her beach wedding.

5. This was a night full of moonlight dancing and laughs.

 6. This year brought a new cousin, cute and chubby.

7. I took this two days before they said “I do.”

8.Daiquiris on the beach, sand in our hair. 
9. My nephew modeling my new Kia.

10. The beautiful bride.

11. My FAVORITEST guy.

12. The beach squad.

13. This little boy lights up my life.

14. Life can change in a second. I welcome change, happily.

15. Justin took this photo in Florida. I like how it makes me seem… deep. Like I’m thinking thoughts.

16. Fog in the New Orleans Business District.

It’s funny that everytime I am online I see people complaining about how awful 2016 was and how 2017 is going to be awesome or lit or amazing. The truth is your year is what you make it. I had many awful or scary moments this year, but the good will always outweigh the bad if you let it.


Hmmm… there was something else I wanted to share with you guys. What was it…? 

Oh, maybe it was the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! 

As you know, I have been talking about revamping my blog. I’m been looking forward to refining it, making it more aesthetically pleasing, utilizing the blogging tools I have been learning over the years, and telling my story in a way that enlightens and entertains others. 

Blah. Blah. Blah. Yada Yada. Get to the point.

2017 will be the year my new blog launches. 

It will be called Georgia Wife Life, and (you guessed it!)  it will be about my life as a Georgia wife. I’ll have a few of my posts from this blog on there because they deal with important issues like LDRs and friendships, but GWL  will focus on:

  1. Food
  2. Relationships
  3. Home
  4. Ladytalk
  5. Beauty

I’ll be talking about my adventures in the kitchen, how we furnish the house, products I’m liking, feelings and emotions, and of course I’ll be sharing wedding photos when I can! I am so excited to share this exciting news with you.  

I will definitely keep you guys updated, but expect the launch to be in Early Spring. 

I won’t be posting much in January, only because I am preparing some stuff for the new blog and getting ready for the wedding. {Only 50 days until “I Do” and I am beyond excited!}

In the meantime, feel free to follow Georgia Wife Life on Instagram. I’ll be posting updates on there soon! See you guys there!

    Looks like I picked the perfect time to rejoin the Instagram community. I LOVE THE NAME AND BOOM I GUESSED IT! Lol but seriously I am swooning over that watercolor illustration. Major heart eyes!

    First I need to tell you I want both of those babies! I won’t be able to keep them for more than a week. I’m old and get tired. But I NEED those kids! I can’t wait to read the new blog! The changes and new adventures you’re about to experience are going to be fantastic! I wish I had been (or wish I were) as mature as you at your age…or mine. You amaze me, Sweetness.

    Totally off subject but I’m noticing that all the new posts on the Georgia Wife Life blog…I can’t leave a comment. And I don’t see comments from other ppl so I’m thinking it’s not there for everyone. And you have asked at the end of some entries fit comments… So I don’t think that it’s your intention to not allow comments. I wanted to comment on the Schmidt’s deodorant (thanks for the tip) and the healthy body choices (I love me and Taco Bell too).
