Let me tell you, it has been an amazing/difficult/wonderful/harsh/whirlwind of a year. Looking back on these past twelve months, I find myself dumbfounded and amazed at all that has happened.

Even though the past is in the past, I always find it interesting to think back on what happened. I could drag on and on about this year, but as a way to save you from absolute boredom, I will share several bullet point highlights from this year! Additionally, since 2018 is right around the corner, I wanted to share some of my 2018 Goals.

2017 Highlights 

  • Married the love of my life on June 3rd 
  • Had an amazing honeymoon to Hawaii 
  • Obtained my teaching credential in May 
  • Landed my dream job as an elementary school teacher in May 
  • Drank way too many cups of coffee! 
  • Moved into a tiny & cute apartment with the hubby! ( & have had a blast doing life with him!) 
  • Even though it breaks my heart... I discovered I can go without buying avocados since they are so freaking expensive! 
  • Had some ups & downs with my little blog, The Teacup of Style--but celebrated three years of blogging in November.  
  • Survived wedding planning (Whoop! Whoop!!) 
  • Visited Chicago in November (Deep dish pizza OMG!)
  • Learned that life can be amazing, difficult, awesome, and heartbreaking all at the same time!

2018 Goals
  • Get back to posting blog posts more consistently and at least three times a week
  • Finish a book a month 
  • Don't dwell on what happened, instead focus on what is to come
  • Try to be more of a morning person on the weekends! 
  • Workout at least 3 times a week (I was doing so good with this one, but arghhh the holidays!!) 
  • Clean out all of my emails and email list 
  • Continue to grow in my knowledge and practice of photography


Even though I don't hold the power to see the future, I am praying that 2018 will be a little less eventful lol!

I hope that you have a wonderful New Years Even & Day!
 Cheers to 2018!
