December 3. I don't often look forward to this day as the only 24 hours of the year that can be solely about me. I look at today as a time to reflect back on this year, all the accomplishments I have made and the lessons that were learned. On this day every year I look into the past and I always find myself saying, "I would have never thought..."

Being 22 was the time of my life. I have been living in Chicago for a little over a year now, which has probably been the biggest blessing. This year I was able to speak on important issues that I am passionate about—whether it was through my college newspaper, my blog, or through Q&As with various publications—I wore a bikini on National TV, I traveled to places I have never seen before, and most importantly I made some of the greatest friends I have ever had. My blog will turn two in March, and I cannot be more proud of how much it has changed and become such an amazing part of my life.

As I turn 23, life seems to speed up making weeks feel like mere days. I graduate in May and there are so many possibilities to consider. These next seven months will be some of the most exciting and challenging times of my life, and I promise to share every detail!

I just wanted to give thanks to my readers for encouraging me to keep up with my blog. I love each and every single one of you. Also, thank you to my friends and family for being a huge contribution to every year!

XO
