What a year it has been! I’ve moved from Ohio to North Carolina, got a sweet and fluffy puppy, I made a ton of new friends, explored Italy and eaten more gelato than anyone should probably eat in a lifetime, relaxed on multiple beaches, shopped in Charleston (I ate some more gelato there), hiked part of the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, and taken way too many photos. I’ve been lucky enough to have gotten multiple weddings published this year, and I plan to continue that trend. I’ve loved every minute of 2016, cheers to an even better 2017. I already know it’s going to be great. Here are a few of my favorite images from this year.
