Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! It has been many years since my last post, and one of my late-year goals last year was to start blogging again. Just coincidentally, I’m procrastinating, which is the perfect time to start blogging again!

Today, being the first day of the month and the first day of the year, I’m posting my Monthly Scrapbook for December 2018, as well as a fun video of some of the good times from all of 2018. I travelled a lot, and had a lot of fun with friends! 2018 I turned 30, along with a lot of my friends, so it was nice to branch out into the world to celebrate my birthday.

Anyway! Here’s my Monthly Scrapbook for December 2018:

Here are the details for each of the pictures:

Top Left: I started a travel journal! I love it a lot!
Middle Left: I had this gigantic bagel, it was delicious.
Bottom Left: Taylor got me this Santa Clarita Diet canvas for Christmas, I love it!!
Top Right: Taylor and I went to the Dickens Fair, it was a lot of fun!
Bottom Right: my mom and I went to Death Valley, it was so gorgeous!

And here’s my fun slideshow/movie for the good times of all of 2018:

My Recencies

Another week, another My Recencies post! Every week, I will handwrite 5 things I did that week that made me happy, take a picture of it, and post it on Instagram. And that is what I (now) call My Recencies! Without any further ado, here is what I did this week!

Here's a preview for #MyRecencies!
