I think it’s pretty clear by now that I love me a good photo-dump. Sometimes words just aren’t enough, and photos definitely do a solid job of speaking for themselves (something something about 1,000 words..)! For that reason, I decided to put together a photo recap of 2016 in pictures, highlighting parts of this past year that I managed to capture.
Looking back through all of these, I realize that despite the speed bump that was September (getting stalked/harassed through NYC and then having my house broken into, boooo), I actually had a pretty solid year! It’s definitely important to look back and reflect, because sometimes we can lose ourselves in little things, and forget the overall big picture. Yea, there were some crappy moments, but dang if I didn’t do a lot this year!!
January. I don’t think this was NYE, but I’m sure it was (almost) just as good. I don’t really remember doing much in January, and I assume I was in winter hibernation mode.
February. I went to South Beach, Miami on a long weekend trip with a friend. (I think we’ll go in Spring next time, February was cooold.)
From one of my very first posts on this blog. Crazy how things have changed!
March. Um, hello chia seed pudding. Did you catch that post? When I started really trying to put effort into my blog.
The flower show, where I bought a bunch of things, forgetting I had to take em home on a bike~
Playing with the amazing light I used to get in my room every day.
April. One of many trips to Ott’s this year.
From our first day in Kenya.
On a safari (can you spy the giraffes??)
May. Attending the art show at the Divine Lorraine, put on by my friends at Decades Hats Co.
These are probably from Whole Foods, but seriously, how can you not love tulips in Spring?
One of many nights out to watch friends DJ (do you want to hear about those nights??)
June. I found so many wild mulberry trees/bushes throughout Philly this year! I think I made it my goal to just find as much wilderness as possible in the city.
From our first visit to Lil Nonna’s. If you’re ever in Philly, you need to visit.
Another rad art show our friends put on in South Philly, this time at the Bok.
July. More Ott’s.
Summer pool days. I definitely regret not having more of them!
From the Truth to Power art show (seriously, hello art shows).
Saying good bye to my old bedroom with the best light–
and hello to Spuntino’s gelato–
as well as my new neighborhood in Philadelphia. (clearly July was a jam-packed month!)
Creeping on friends.
Discovered El Vez nachos are apparently the best nachos ever.
September. This was my toughest month this year. After being harassed in NYC, I was robbed, and felt like I lost myself. I almost took this new apartment, but it got rented out instead (lol tho).
