How many of you were ready to say goodbye to 2017? I definitely was ready! 2017 was a challenging year for me. But I believe that everything that needed to happen in my life happened because I had some lessons I still needed to learn. Even though 2017 started out a little rough, it ended very nicely... I am so grateful that all of the decisions I made last year led me to Boston for 3 weeks to cook with my mother. It is not often we get an extended amount of time to spend with our mothers as adults! Even though I felt like a child again living back at home (and I probably stressed my mom out), the time I had with her this past December was very special. I also fell back in love with Boston (although, I did not fall in love with the cold). I was fortunate to get to witness this winter's first snowfall, enjoy a white Christmas, eat delicious food, cook with my mother, read bedtime stories to my nephew, host a small baby shower for my older sister, catch up with my old high school friend, reconnect with an old college friend, reunite with friends that I made in Costa Rica last July on a yoga retreat, and surprisingly, make a new friend in the short amount of time I had in Boston. I felt ready for 2017 to end but I also felt nostalgic to say goodbye as I reflected on that journey.
2018, I am ready for you!!!
