A Look Back At 2017!

Twenty-Seventeen, you've been a crazy roller coaster of a year, to say the least. This time last year I remember feeling so incredibly optimistic for 2017 and I had no idea as to why. This year I had so many obstacles hitting me from left and right, and even at my lowest I remained hopeful. I knew something great was waiting for me and it was. So many things managed to happen this year that I was beginning to think was never going to happen. Since tomorrow is the first day of the new year, today I wanted to share with you some of the highlights of my year.

A White Christmas

As you may know, this was mine and Rudy's first Christmas in Washington and we were so lucky to be able to experience a White Christmas. On Christmas Eve, it began snowing and it didn't stop until Christmas Day around noon. We had so much fun playing it the snow, throwing snowballs at each other, built a Snow Man, and even Juicy and Bowie were out in the snow with us for a little bit. It was all so beautiful and it made the Holiday so much more meaningful. I wanted to share some of the many photos Rudy and I took.

Listening: to a ton of Christmas music! When I used to work in retail I always looked forward to the day after Thanksgiving when they begin playing all the Holiday classics. I love Christmas music and can listen to it all the time without ever getting tired of it. During this season I finally get to bring out some of my favorite holiday records such as one of the classics 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' and of course the She & Him holiday vinyl. I recently picked up a couple new records which I already shared in part two of my record collection so don't forget to check that out. I also really enjoy the Glee cast holiday music. I used to always play their station on Pandora until I discovered Spotify. They have some really great recreation to some of my favorite Holiday songs.

My Record Collection #2

I'm very excited to share with you all today part two of my record collection. I love records, collecting and listening to them is one of my favorite things to do. Since my introduction post to my record collection series back in May, I have accumulated a good enough amount to continuing onto part two, finally. Really quick I wanted to mention that I'm still using the same Crosley record player and my records sound great on it. Now without wasting any time, let's begin!
