While a bulk of the internet has decided that 2016 was the worst year ever, I have to say I disagree.
It wasn't perfect, but this year I experienced so much personal and professional growth that I just can't help but to look back on the past 364 days cheerfully.
Just to hit a few '16 highlights: I started my blog, my baby girl was born, we set a date for (and started planning) our wedding, and we signed a contract to start building our new house. Overall, 2016 was awesome, but I'm so looking forward to all the possibilities that 2017 holds. I always love the new year because of the feeling of getting a fresh start. It's like putting fresh sheets on the bed...just the best.

WHAT I'M WEARING: NEW YEARS EVE
Yes, I am a little bit obsessed with H&M. Between the wide range of options from biz casual to fashion forward, the super reasonable prices, and their sustainable fashion initiative (H&M Conscious), what's not to love? No joke, I put together this entire outfit for just under $63. Some of the highlights: this top (which also comes in 4 colors) is only $9.99, and these earrings & necklace were $3 each. Steal.
Most all of these items are part of the after-Christmas sale, so while only some of them are currently available online, you can still pop into H&M and grab this whole outfit for yourself. If you'd like to shop online from the couch instead, I've linked the available pieces from the outfit as well as some similar items from other retailers below.
