This Year in Review 2016

        The starting of a new year gives us the perfect time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the opportunies that lie ahead.  So much has happened this year – a promotion at my day job that has meant more hours, more responsibilities, and working towards a new certification; my nephew turning one year old; and learning that I have a new nephew on the way.  This next year will be a busy year full of personal growth and exciting events!  Along with my personal and professional goals, I have plans for my creative pursuits as well.  But first, let’s recap 2016…
