Thank you, 2015!

2015 has been such an exciting and fast-paced year for me. Now that it's drawing to a close, it's nice to take the time to look back and remember the roller coaster of a ride it has been. First, I left home and moved to a different country, so I made sure to write a list of things to do before moving away   which included packing my whole life into 2 luggage bags which was so hard when I've got a ton of stuff!

Checked another item off my bucket list before I left home by going wakeboarding in Cebu!

Moved to Australia and went back to school at a university that ranks among the world's top 2%!

Got engaged and soon after married the love of my life!

Experienced my first autumn and winter season. This has got to be my favorite fashion post of the year.


Traveled a bit around Adelaide, South Australia including getting to hold a koala, feed a kangaroo, and go wine tasting in the Barossa, visit a lavender farm and the whispering wall.
And while everything I've mentioned has all been about fun, I went through a lot of challenges as well. After living such a pampered and sheltered life, I dove head first into the independent adult lifestyle and had to do everything for myself for the first time. I also had to work while studying full time. There were days where life was sleep-eat-uni-work-sleep on a daily basis. But I look back and remember all the prayers that have already been answered. God's presence and guidance has been even more evident in my life this 2015. With that said, how can I not be excited for what's to come?
Me at Graduation!

Always,
Jeanne
