2017: My Year in Review

Regardless of certain things that have happened in the world at large this year, for me, 2017 has been a very good year. I'm lucky enough to have been blessed with some wonderful people, opportunities and experiences, all of which have left me here reflecting on how good this last year has been to me.

Of course, there have been some downs as well as ups, most notably saying goodbye to Max, our dog, back in the summer. However, on the whole, I simply couldn't be luckier. After the rollercoaster ride that was my 2016, I'm so happy to have had such a good year to follow.

Here are just a few of my personal highlights from 2017.
  • I fell in love and began a relationship which gets stronger by the day
  • I passed the probation period at my day job and took on more responsibilities
  • I learned new skills at work and broadened my professional portfolio
  • We began looking for our first house together
