2023 Recap & Highlights

2023 Recap & Highlights

Happy New Year! I wanted to do a proper recap of my 2023 - I do this post every single year and love the tradition. This past year was really one of my best yet... if not the best year of my life so far, and I want to recap it properly!

I feel so, so, so extremely grateful for the life I am living. After some tough years in high school, college, and post-grad, the good years feel extra sweet to me and I really just want to acknowledge that! It's not lost on me that I have so much to be thankful for; I am happy in my job, my relationship, my friendships, my health, my financial state, and everything else. I am so grateful to have so many wonderful friends in NYC, a job that I enjoy, funds my lifestyle, and lets me travel, as well as continue to maintain this blog and other social platforms. I am grateful for Joe, my family, my friends, all of their health, and all of the travel and opportunities in my life. I really have been so lucky and I feel so blessed.  

2023 just felt like the year where everything fell into place and things went really, really well. There were multiple times in 2023 when I just thought to myself, if my high school or even college self could see me now, she wouldn't believe it!

If I had to sum up the year in one word, I would be remiss not to say 2023 was the year of travel for me. I honestly don't think I will ever travel as much in a year as I did last year! I visited three other countries, two new states for me, and handfuls of cities. Let's just jump into the highlights, month by month!
