The End of an Era

If there is one word to define my 2017 year in review, it is G R O W T H .


In 2017, I achieved and learned far beyond anything I could have imagined… Dean’s List to finish off my college career, an internship in Barcelona, traveling in Mexico and all over Europe with friends and family, being accepted to my top grad school, and trying my best to soak up each and every moment with my family before life catches up to me.

Most importantly, I found myself running into the arms of J E S U S more than ever. My faith has grown immensely and will continue to flourish as my future unfolds.

Whether I was adventuring in Mexico with friends, studying to succeed in my last year of undergrad, praising Jesus in church on Sunday’s (and everyday), interning in Barcelona, traveling Europe with friends and family, or facing the life challenges…

I found myself growing spiritually and personally every step of the way.

The future is bright and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store… it will be bigger and better than ever – Nora’s 10th birthday, my parents 25th wedding anniversary, college graduation, and starting grad school in London in the Fall.
