Year in Review / 2015

2015 was everything - travel, adventures big & small, savoring the details, taking on creative projects, and sharing it all with my favorite people. Here's a quick look back on just a few of the moments that made this year great. And, happy new year, friends! Let's make 2016 the best year yet.


2015 and a very good Virgin Airlines sale meant a year of trips to close and faraway places. I spent a week in Yosemite without wifi in a giant mountain top cabin with work, hung out in LA during it's only rainy spring weekend, relaxed poolside in the Palm Springs heat for my sister's bachelorette, did this thing called Coachella... 

...visited M's sister in North Carolina, ate at the cutest brunch place & explored Portland with my favorite J, and spent two and a half beautiful weeks tapas hopping and cava drinking our way through Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba, and Madrid.

The fall brought another trip back to Palm Springs for Designer Vaca and I learned that last minute trips to the mountains are a very good idea.

This year brought a bunch of creative design projects, including my fourth and final Minds Matter Spring Gala to my sister's bridal shower to designing my first full wedding suite from invite to favors to day-of stationary... my full-time job at Sincerely that was packed with art direction & styling, more emails designed than I can count, and re-designing our entire packaging system...

And lastly, the moments. I'm thankful for the new experiences and cozy, quiet moments and everything in between. There are too many to cram into a post, so this is just a tiny sliver of the everyday moments that made this year amazing.
