2016: A Year of Big Change

What a year.

An engagement.

A trip to Hawaii.

Moving to California.

Facing a lifelong fear and learning how to drive.

My foray into bodybuilding with my first bikini competition and trophy.

Establishing myself somewhere new.

Getting married.

Adding a name to mine.

Turning 30.

Trump... fear of what is to come.

Our first love nest.

And now we will finish the year in Hawaii, together, for our honeymoon.

This year has tested my limits, shown me what I'm capable of, and has shown me that hard work is worth it.

I have faced so many fears and have been rewarded for all of them.

At the end of the day, I am so proud of my accomplishments and so grateful to be here. Our honeymoon and a little love and tenderness could not come at a better time.

2017, I will be ready for you. I still have so much to do.
