It shot out and hit me hard as I read the words and ...

2017 Year in Review

For the final blog post of 2017, it’s only fitting that I write a tacky “year in review” post. And what a year it has been! On New Years Eve 2016, I was out celebrating the night with my boyfriend & his friend. During the evening, my BF brought up a tradition I’d not heard of before.
