2016 was a year of growth for me personally, spiritually, professionally, and creatively. I took lots of time off from blogging to enjoy life a little more. Instead of worrying about my next post, I aimed to post only when I felt inspired, and boy, has it made a huge difference!

I used to put so much pressure on myself for no reason to try to keep up with trends and the Joneses of the blogging world - it was miserable! I now find myself going back to the reason why I started blogging - to share my life and style in my own space. Just doin' my own thang, you know? 

My style has changed a lot too, undoubtedly because of that as well. Instead of trying to keep up with the "blogger look," I'm more choosey with what I invest in and am definitely more selective when shopping. I buy what I like, despite what's "in" or "out" at the moment. I feel so much more confident when I am wearing something that I love, versus what someone else is telling me I should wear. I still keep up with trends, I'm not denying that, but I incorporate them based on what fits me and my lifestyle.

I'm really looking forward to 2017 and all the changes it brings, too. I know God's got some good ones ahead, just gotta take it one day at a time! :)
