2017 Roundup


We are almost two weeks through 2018 already, how has that happened. 2017 was a crazy year for us, Josh had a crazy year with his IT job and I had a tough year where I was working which lead to me to quit in August. We spend our second full year in San Diego and feel in love with the city more than ever. We found out that we were going to move to Italy (in spring 2018) which is something that we talked about for almost two years. We grew as people, made new friendships, traveled to new cities and discovered new things.

When I look back at 2017, I think about the struggle that I was going through with my job. Which is something that I haven’t talked about on here because for the first month or so it was really hard to me to talk about without getting emotional. However, I learned a lot from that situation and now I’m happier than ever. Running this blog is something that I enjoy so much and look forward to creating more content in 2018.
