A look back: my year in three.

September 28, 2016

This year is not over, no, but truthfully it won’t be long until we’re ringing in 2017. Not that I’m rushing it – I have loved 2016 for so many reasons (more on all of that in a few months).

Some of you may have noticed a slight shift and change in this space for the last few months or so and it’s one of those shifts and changes where I’m not…
