While we have moved on to a new year, I'd like to look back on 2015. A year that I'll definitely remember well - as much has happened and much has changed. From graduating from high school to my first date with Mitchell to starting this blog - my life is nothing like my 2014 life anymore. Although I love my life right now, I can't wait to see what 2016 holds for me!
As my instagram feed pretty much summarizes my life, I thought it would be nice to share a couple of pictures that I posted in 2015 with you, along with a short description to each picture. If you want to keep up with my life in 2016, make sure you follow my instagram account @Rockslita !
