Rewind: 2017

Another year has come and gone and with it a whole year of experiences, travel, and recipes! Here is my Rewind: 2017. (Check out 2015 and 2016's rewinds too)

A Coachella-Inspired Photoshoot
Photoshoots with Myriam are anything but boring and I can't get enough of her music festival-inspired look here! (Psst check out my photography page)

A Fun Beach Day
Working two jobs last summer made days off a little hard to come by, but having great friends made those days even better.

A Hard Goodbye
Losing a close family member brought me to a new understanding of my own emotion and how I relate to those around me, and to a new appreciation of love.

A Long Summer
Two jobs and heartbreak don't really mesh well but I learned a lot about myself last summer.

A Pumpkin Patch
Fall was cool relief and a pumpkin heaven! My roommie and I explored our local pumpkin patch.

A Solo Concert
I went to a concert alone and now I think everyone should try it at least once -- it's so worth it!

For spring break we headed out on a Caribbean cruise and one of our destinations was Playa del Carmen and the ruins of Chichen Itza. 

Another stop along the cruise route was Jamaica where we ate our way through Falmouth. 

In October Mom and I escaped to Phoenix for a long weekend including an incredible hike through the red rock mountains of Sedona.

Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars
My resolutions failed (nearly on) Day 1 with these extra gooey treats -- I promise they won't go uneaten for long!

Chocolate Chip S'mores Biscuits
Not too sweet, these biscuits are perfect to impress at your next potluck brunch.

Cinnamon Bun Cake
My parents are still raving about this cake! Literally a throw-together recipe turned into one of my biggest hits.

Vegan Smoothie Bowl
Despite the fact that pretty much all of my recipes are for dessert, I try to eat a fairly healthy and balanced diet and this vegan smoothie bowl was just too good to not share!

My Favorite Favorites....
Colorful Wedges from February's Favorites
Now a summer staple, these wedges are comfortable enough to wear around all day, stable enough to wear on a lurching cruise ship, and cute enough to get compliments everywhere you go!

La Dolce Vita from March's Favorites
Franco Fellini directs notably dramatic films and (arguably) his most famous one is no different.

Harry Styles' New Album from May's Favorites
An album for the ages, his debut solo creation is one that will keep you company from heartbreak to can't-get-enough love. (Ps one of his songs was also on President Obama's love list)

Cup of Jo and How to Hygge from February's Favorites
Cup of Jo remains one of my absolute favorite blogs and her article about how to Hygge in the Dutch tradition is a well-loved bookmark.

Favorite Instagrams....

Here's to a wonderful 2018 full of positivity and light!
