The Best of 2016

2016 has gotten a bad rap but it has been one of my best years. Here is a highlight of my favorite parts. Enjoy!

23 April 2016
I got to marry my best friend. Jake and I met in 2014 on eHarmony. Yes, you read that correctly. With a full time job and being a full time student, I didn’t have much time to go out and socialize. I have a cousin who met her husband on eHarmony and is happily married so I thought I’d give it a try. Jake was one of my first matches and it was an instant connection. Turns out we lived two miles away from each other all along.Β He proposed on June 12, 2015 and we were married 10 months later. Our wedding was absolutely magical and everything I have ever dreamed of and more. (Jessica of MOONbelle Photography did all our photos!)

Six months after our dream wedding, we went to Jamaica for our dream honeymoon. We stayed in an all-inclusive resort and even had our own butler. The weather was amazing and beautiful every day. We got to swim with dolphins, tour a plantation, ride a camel, climb the Dunn’s River waterfalls, jump off waterfalls at Blue Hole, snorkel along a reef, and relax on the beach. It was hands down the best vacation ever.

I hope 2017 brings as much joy as 2016 did. I am looking forward to my one year anniversary, my 30th birthday, and finishing my Master’s degree. What are you excited for in the new year? I hope 2017 brings you all health, joy, and happiness!
