2017 Year End Review

As you can tell by the title, this is not a normal Friday Favorites post. Those will be back in the new year once I set my schedule better, a top priority over the next few days.

2017 feels a bit like a blur. From personal to professional challenges, to wonderful moments shared with friends and family, I will say this year was a lot, in both good and bad. With everything happening in the world and on any given day another tragedy striking our nation, it's important to surround yourself with loved ones, do something you enjoy, and make the most of all the moments we have. I am grateful for my amazing family, wonderful friends, and new Internet friends including all of you who read this little corner of the Internet.

This year was filled with incredible trips, delicious food, and so many other great things that I am excited to look back on. It's an honor and privilege to share with you some of my highlights from 2017!

Whether the adventure was local in New York City or traveled to a new place I learned this year that adventure can happen anywhere. If you are open to it, you can learn something new from every place you visit, even if you have been a million times before, like New York City. I look forward to more travel in 2018. More content and more food. I plan to enhance my photography, especially after receiving a special gift this holiday season of my photos in a book created by my sisters boyfriend.

Ending 2017 with a new career I am passionate about is exciting. 2018 is going to be even better and I can't wait to share some of it!

My one big goal for 2018 is to be present. What is yours?



  1. You accomplished a lot this year, Tracy, you should be very proud! I agree that things are pretty tumultuous right now and we need to seek comfort whenever we can find it. I think being present is a great goal, ours is to contribute more. Here's to 2018!

    1. Thank you, guys!! Your comment means a lot. I love "contribute" and it can be in so many ways! Here's to 2018!

  2. You did a lot of things this year. I hope you will have an amazing 2018 and that you will fullfil your dreams and wishes
