Can you believe we are about to head into the new year!? It is easy to look back at the year as a whole and think it was a complete blur, but it is so important to reflect on 2017 in order to move into the new year with a clear mind and inspired state.

Write down your 5 biggest accomplishments in 2017. Then make a list of 5 goals you want to tackle in the new year! Maybe you want to visit a new destination or start a new hobby. Write down your top 5 and then make actionable notes on how you can make each one happen! Keep this somewhere you can see throughout the year to remind yourself of how far you have come and where you want to go.

Europe was one of the destinations Patrick and I really wanted to experience together in 2017 and we were finally able to make it in late November. Being in Paris during the holidays was more magical than I could put into words. I will be doing a full post about why Paris during the holidays should be on your bucket list so make sure to keep and eye out for that in the coming weeks! Wearing an elaborate gown in front of the Eiffel Tower has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. We went at sunrise and had the entire place to ourselves, which is so rare and felt incredibly surreal! This trip with Patrick will be one that I will cherish forever and gets me so excited for the travel plans we have coming up in the New Year.
