Oh hello 2017. People have been joking about how 2016 was devastating, but it was honestly one of the greatest years of my life for so many reasons. To name a few:
- Moved to NC
- Started my job in NC and promoted to supervisor
- Launched Christen Smith Photography in NC
- Married my person
- Attended my sister Sarah’s graduation party and my sister Hannah’s wedding
- Volunteered twice for Stop Hunger Now
To commemorate this year, Patrick and I spent New Year’s Eve in downtown Raleigh where we avoided stilted birds, ate at Joule for its last day in business, and reflected on how God has blessed our year together. If 2016 was this wonderful, I cannot wait to see how 2017 can better, challenge, and change us.
