Love and kisses to you all! xoxo

Hello and Happy Holidays to all! I decided to keep my section short and sweet this year all in a bite size timeline. As someone famous once said, ain’t nobody got time for ‘dat. So please see below for the highlights of my year and click to view more photos and the story. As always, you can stalk me in further detail via Facebook and Instagram with links to the right.

It’s been an incredible year and I’m ready to tackle 2016 with even more gusto.

Celebrated 24th birthday in New Orleans

January 29th

This year for my 24th birthday I gathered a group of 6 of my close friends and all piled in a car together for a road trip to New Orleans. We spent the weekend in an Air BnB shotgun house 10 minutes from Bourbon st. Basically, it was a weekend of drinking, cajun food, and fun.

Got a Wicked Haircut

March 28th

…then went to Barcelona

April 29th

I stayed with Charlie and Elisa in their home and rode around the tour buses, checked out the beach, and hiked around Montserrat. It was my second time to visit Barcelona and I feel like this time around I enjoyed it even more.

Got a New Cat – Minka Victoria Prator

February 14th

She’s an adorable nuisance. On a whim, I decided I needed a new cat in my life when I found a rescued momma cat with a litter of new kittens. I got her on Valentine’s day this year and instantly fell in stupid love.

Visited Amsterdam for the first time

April 25th

Ever since Charlie and Elisa had moved to Barcelona, I had been itching to take a vacation to visit them. One day, Charlie calls me and suggests I come visit them in Barcelona for a few days, but before we would meet in Amsterdam for King’s Day.

Spent Labor Day Weekend in New York City

September 5th

Last time I was in NYC I was six years old and I had the chicken pox. When one of my best friends told me her brother lived in Manhattan and she offered for me to come with her to visit him, I nearly squealed. I’ve always loved NYC.

Tailgated like proper Texas State alum

September 26th

Which is also just an excuse to drink and see my best friends from Austin.

Moved to Dallas, TX

November 7th

When I started with Actsoft, they asked if I would be willing to move to Dallas to be closer to the majority of the reps I would work with since AT&T is headquartered out of Dallas. I figured, why not? I’m ready to restart in a new city with a new job.

Spent the holidays in Granby, CO

December 22nd

I asked for a white Christmas so I decided to go to the only place that is below 80 degrees this winter, Colorado. Charlie and Elisa currently reside in Granby, CO in a nice home with multiple beds. We’re spending our time by the fire, making snow angels, and skiing.

Started a New Job with Actsoft

October 5th

After some time with AT&T, I felt it was time to start a new chapter in my life and I wanted to work for a different and smaller company. By chance, I happened to be selling Actsoft’s products to my current AT&T customers and when I was on a call with my current Actsoft repwho suggested I apply for the position!

Hosted a Tacky Christmas Sweater Party

December 5th

gain, another excuse to drink and see my best friends from Austin. Michelle, my roommate, and I thought there’s no better way to break in our new apartment than bringing in all our good friends to mix and mingle.
