So I know we are already well into the swing of 2018 (2017 being a distant memory already) and I’m a little late to the party but holidays are just too time consuming 😉
Anyways, tardiness aside, I wanted to share my top 5 favorite moments of 2017 with you because it was such a life changing and amazing year for me!
- My Wedding
- Graduating from BHC
- Chopping off my locks
Here’s why…in case it’s not obvious:
1. My Wedding
So this one is probably obvious but just in case you weren’t sure, this was the most incredible day of my life. After 2 years of planning and a lifetime of dreaming about it, the day was absolutely everything I’d ever hoped for. To top it off, I got the most amazing man on the planet to agree to spend eternity with me. So this definitely wins as the best day of 2017 AND my whole life.
We were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon at Paradis Resort in Mauritius and as far as holidays go this was just incredible. We had the best weather, ate delicious food and most of all, it was just a lot of rest and relaxation with my new husband. After the stress and work of planning for our wedding, having nothing but each other with not a care or worry in the world was just what the doctor ordered.
3. Phinda Mountain Lodge
This midyear getaway was unforgettable. We had the most phenomenal time at Phinda Mountain Lodge and we were blessed with amazing weather and most importantly, the most amazing animal sightings. It was exactly what two bush lovers needed to get through a very busy year.
4. Graduating from BHC School of Design
Changing careers was a major part of my 2017. I decided to leave the world of Accounting and pursue a career in Interior Decorating. In December, I graduated with a Higher Certificate in Interior Decorating from BHC School of Design, finished 2nd in my class and received the award for decor excellence. So I guess you could say that thus far it’s been a successful change. Now, it’s time to start job hunting… stay tuned!
5. Chopped off my locks
After having long hair for my whole life I decided to make a huge change and cut my hair short which I am absolutely loving at the moment… #shorthairdontcare
Obviously the year was filled with many other special memories and moments, however the above mentioned ones were definitely my top 5 because, well, they were unforgettable.
Wishing you all a very Happy 2018! I hope it will be filled with lots of love, happiness and success!
