Where did 2019 go?! Do you feel like 2019 flew by too? I find it hard to believe that 2019 is coming to an end, but with a new year comes new opportunities. I am so ready for 2020 to be the best year yet!
While I am looking forward to a new year, I believe it is important to reflect on the previous year and to remember the good times and learn from the not-so-good times. This 2019 recap may seem a bit selfish when my blog is primarily audience-based; however, I love to write and this is important to me, so I hope you’ll stick around and feel inspired to review your year as well.
2019 started off with a low key New Years Eve/New Years Day. At the time, I was working for a swimwear brand, and I really just started seeing success and opportunities come from my social media account. I had the opportunity to attend an event with Abercrombie & Fitch in NYC, went to Surf Expo, and trained for the Disney Princess 10k.
Thomas flew in for a quick Disney getaway together! I mean, I was already in Orlando… so why not right?!
What a month!
It was training time, family time, and work time. I continued to hustle with content creation, posting daily, and stepping up my game, while training for the 10k and working a job as well!
Girls Day in Bethlehem with my mom, aunt, and cousin:

I also attending New York Fashion Week- which was incredibly lame. Hey, I have to be honest with you guys! I still had a fun night with my friend Hannah.
Thomas turned 25 years old!!
We completed the Disney Princess 10k in EPCOT!!!!
My cousin and I flew to Orlando (3rd time for me this year) and went to Universal Studios!
It was a fun girls trip!
The remainder of March was full of more instagram collaborations, work, and celebrating my 25th birthday! My friends, Thomas, and I headed to Vermont for a fun birthday weekend. We went skiing and had a great time!

The last weekend of March, my dad and I ventured to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossom Festival! What beautiful sights! The end of March, I took on my social media freelance and content creation FULL TIME.
April was pretty low key. Thomas and I had some fun day trips, Binx celebrated his birthday, and I spent a lot of time with good friends and motivating people.
May was one of the best months out of the year. My friend and I went on a crazy road trip out west to various national parks. I saw the most beautiful sights.
It was time for another quick little Disney trip… because why not right?
Beach trips, sunflower fields, and the balloon festival! What a fun month under the sun.
LBI trips, blogger meet ups, and celebrating 7 years with Thomas! I liked August a lot. It was a period of growth for me and a time to just be with my friends.
Block Island collaboration, Sea Hear Now Music Festival, and the water lantern festival! Now that I think about it, September was really awesome too.
From EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival to getting reposted by my favorite blogger ever, it is fair to say that October really rocked too.
Lots of work on my goals and dreams in November- from collaborations to creating valuable content to stepping up my photography. I also made sure to spend time with good friends, and enjoyed a day trip to Angry Orchard.
More collabs and more fun- December was full of good times and also some stressful days. We went to Boston and NYC. This month seemed to fly by.
As I look back, I realize that 2019 was really AWESOME! Wow, I feel super blessed. This year was full of adventure, and a common theme. “Nothing changes if nothing changes.” In 2019, I definitely pushed myself to get out there whenever possible and I am so glad I did. 2020 has some tough competition, but I am feeling so good going into a new year full of endless opportunities and adventures!
Cheers to 2020!
