Last Year I … | 2015 In Review

Last year I said goodbye to my sweet little Grammie,

and hello to a couple of the most beautiful little girls.

I helped to both create a Kickstarter campaign, and launch a social media campaign, with guidance from some dudes who deserve all the credit.

I tried new food,

and grew some of my own.

I found a new love for all things yard related.

I celebrated surviving a quarter of a century,

surrounded by some of coolest girls, while one of the coolest bands in Iowa sang a song just for me.

I watched the sunset more times than I can count, and tried to document as many as I could.

I finally got the Katy-Perry-purple hair I’d been dreaming of.

I hung out with this gangly girl for a weekend, and she reminded me why being a kid is the best.

I bought a lot of makeup. Like a lot.

I went to 80/35 for the first time, and saw Jenny Lewis from the front row.

I yoga-ed,

and paddle boarded.

I got lots of new tattoos, and took my crazy cat lady status to the next level.

I spent weekend after weekend with my girls, cultivating a friendship that will last a lifetime.

I saw my faraway friends as often as I could, and appreciated every moment that I did.

I brunched and lunched with inspirational people.

I spent several hours turning myself into a skeleton for Halloween.

I shared some of the best moments on the best adventures with the absolute best friend I will ever have.

I hosted a show in my garage, complete with a visit from the cops, because nothing should stop you from enjoying the things you love.

I celebrated my favorite holiday with my new blended family of friends who have made 2015 one of my most fun years yet.

Most importantly though, thanks to the help of the two greatest parents in the entire world,

and despite big changes and hard times, I left 2015 proud of what I accomplished and knowing I am ready for whatever 2016 throws my way.

Here’s to 2016! Cheers!
