Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Well, I’m a little late to this post… you might have seen other bloggers you love sharing recaps of their years last week, which is always so fun to see! I’m always blown away by how quickly the year goes and how amazing, hard-working, and accomplished so many bloggers are!

On my Weekend Reads post from Sunday, I mentioned that I’d be sharing a bit more about this past year and a bit more about what’s coming in 2018 for Edwin and me. Well, I’m with each and every one of you… I have to wait and see what 2018 will bring but Edwin and I are hoping to set some more serious roots.

Hello 2018!!

In 2018, we are planning to decide if we will stay in Charleston or if we will move back to Los Angeles (more on that here). We are also planning to explore the option of buying a house in either destination… it’s so scary but also beyond exciting to think about! Before I share a little recap of 2017, I want to say thank you so much for reading Rhyme & Reason. I appreciate each one of you so much and love connecting with y’all over email, Instagram messaging, blog comments, and more!

2017 was pretty darn amazing.

I traveled to San Diego a handful of times for birthdays + a wedding + Memorial Day weekend, Jackson Hole twice with family and for my bachelorette, Charleston a handful of times for wedding planning and with Allison, New York City for Fashion Week twice, Harbour Island for my teaching spring break, Tuscaloosa for my brother’s graduation, Phoenix for a wedding and again for my bridal shower, Lake Tahoe for a girlfriend’s bachelorette, Savannah for a girls weekend, Austin for a girlfriend’s bachelorette, Boulder and Vail for a wedding, Crested Butte for Edwin’s birthday, Nantucket twice with Allison for a girls trip and for her surprise engagement, the Hamptons to see family, Canouan Island and Grenada with Sarah for her job, New Orleans on my drive across the country, Beaufort for a mother daughter road trip, Asheville to see fall foliage, Sea Island for our mini-moon, Atlanta to visit my sister, and Los Angeles for Christmas… wooo! Edwin and I also moved to Charleston, got married, and welcoming Maybelle into our family. Thanks for traveling down memory lane with me today… Goodbye 2017, hello 2018! xx
