A Thank you to 2016

Well 2016 is coming to an end and I have to say that this has definitely been a year of learning.  My patience has been tested and I have felt extremely weak at times.  I have messed up and made mistakes.  I have done things that I regret and have said things I wish I could take back.  I cannot tell you that I was perfect, but I have to say that I am glad I am not.  Thank you 2016 for allowing me to mess up.

Because of all of this, 2016 has been a year where I have learned new things about myself.  I have pushed myself to go further.  I have conquered fears.  I have grown in so many ways and would not change a thing.  Jon Luke and I have been extremely fortunate to experience new places, and try new things that I will always remember.  So, to a year that will forever be on my heart, thank you for showing us more.

I will say that a lot could happen in 2017, but it has large shoes to fill because 2016 brought me so much.  I am so thankful for the opportunities that have been given to me and I would not want to walk through life any differently, or with anyone else by my side.  So I am saying goodbye (and thank you) to 2016 and the memories we created, but I welcome 2017 with a happy heart and open arms.  I cannot wait to see what is in store!

I hope you all have a safe and happy new year! Thank you so much for the love you have shown to me and Gracefully Taylored this year.  I hope to continue to bring you content that you love and cannot wait to see where this life leads me.  You guys are the best and I love sharing my life with you!  Happy New Year!
